U.S. FARMERS UNEASY

The U.S. moved forward with it’s threat to impose tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports Friday, virtually guaranteeing retaliatory tariffs from China. Already seeing market volatility, the move left Midwestern soybean farmers uneasy. “I am nervous to think about the scenarios of what’s going to happen if it does go into effect,” said Illinois farmer Heath Houck. “In the last three to five years, with the depressed farming economy the way it is, it can certainly hamper us even further. It kind of scares me, to be honest.” (CNBC)
