Hayes quoted on trade war

August 9, 2019

Dr. Dermot HayesDermot Hayes, professor, was quoted in an August 8th story, "Businesses, farmers brace for new phase in Trump trade war," in The Hill.

“The trade war has done lasting damage to Iowa agriculture and it doesn’t appear to have an easy end,” he said. “I think farmers were supportive of Trump early on because of the deregulation that occurred, but I think more and more are so concerned about the future that they wish the trade war never started.”

“The payments help, but they’re one-off or short-term payments, and the damage is lasting,” said Hayes.
