china can't force anyone to sell, so then don't sell... All those multinationals that closed up shop here and moved there did so on their own, china didn't put a gun to their head. Same story here, China can't control the grain trade, unless "WE LET THEM!" which is always the case. If history is any guide, a lot of people will sell out, anything is for sale. Like I said earlier, thank goodness cargill is private, thus they won't succomb to the "stock price," b.s. For myself, and call it what you will, I wouldn't do business with a chinese elevator. IMO they should have never been given MFN status, as their activities at a local village yesterday would dictate.

We spend $4 with China for every $1 they spend with us. Free trade works, well for someone anyway. #28 http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/50-eco

You got that right. Sadly, we don't "have" to buy goods made in china, but most people "choose" to. The Labeling laws are specific and detailed, about where stuff is made, and assembled etc. If one really cares about made in the U.S.A., you can do the research and learn how to buy. Unfortunately, sometimes, I find made in Turkey as a victory.
