The window is open for an indeterminate period as Dow settles a price fixing case for $835 million rather than take a chance with the case at the SCOTUS sans Scalia.

 

Of course it would have to work its way there which would likely take a few years.

 

The case for price fixing is sitting in plain sight, just not sure if there's anybody left in "agriculture" with enough stones to bring it. Most have been thoroughly neoliberalized- getting ripped off doesn't matter as long as your neighbor is getting ripped off too- the game is about outlasting him.


The trouble with N prices is ag has to compete with industrial uses such as scubbers on coal fired power plants.
