Re: Do we need American Agriculture ?
This has been a long term trend and a lot of folks haven't been paying attention. The Nafta and Cafta agreement have been big contributers to the issue. In 2014 American agriculture had a 'value in the field' of about $234 billion or 1.3% of the GDP. Americans imported $105 billion in food imports the same year and that trend is growing at five percent year. So you're correct In ten years America will have outsourced her food - not good
