    Maybe they aren't even able to sell their whole produce, possibly forcing them to use it as expensive animal feed or let it rot in the Silos
    (especially theUS corn farmers come to my mind, which predominately seem to produce for export to mexico ... and may be doomed if mexico enacts punitive tariffs on corn (and mexican food producers get their corn from southern america instead of the USA))

      No. They will sell everything. It's a world market.

        But that's the point of comparing total production to what sales might be lost. It's insignificant.

          • Probably individual Americans will feel the hurt more by the import tariffs that increase the price of imports, than by the retaliatory tarriffs. We run a massive trade deficit after all, and have a glorious history of agricultural subsidies and paying farmers to not grow stuff. So the losses in exports will be socialized, spread around enough to dilute and obscure the effect.

            If the USD ends up being dropped as world reserve currency then the trade deficit would hurt a lot more.

            • That's the real fear. If we can't just print money when we need it, the long term effect would be devastating.

              • For the USD to be dropped something has to be able to take over and I don't see that.
