Hart: How USMCA passage would affect Iowa

July 19, 2019

Dr. Chad HartChad Hart, associate professor, was interviewed in a July 18th Ames Tribune story on the effect passage of the proposed USMCA would have on Iowa farmers.

“You always hear stories of the family farm being consolidated, or a loss of first-hand involvement in agriculture, and the effect of trade will either slow (trends) down or speed it up,” Hart said. “These will continue, and what trade wars do is accelerate the process and the strain on farmers in highly-volatile price times or situations where they need to drive their costs low.”
