Bad when you see a story on the Internet and run with it,
Then horror of horrors, someone points out it is 6 months to 3 years old.

If Argentina misses rains this weekend, exports will change.
Don't forget the Chinese are going on a two week holiday. (Chinese New Year)

Re: Short lived story

Some think our exports especially, soybean meal will pickup because of infrastructure and because of the damage due to the crops the weather already has caused southern brazil and arg.

Re: Short lived story

nitefarm,

That is a story that we see..... but the paid marketing services are pretty slow on it if not just avoiding it......probably because there are two government reporting agencies between the brazil soybean crop and us...............not to mention several grain marketing companies and a very powerful buyer..... all involved in the data creation/bias.

 

Risk......... Job risk,,,,, department risk.......... political risk...always frame the picture.  It is too risky to report crop problems until the risks of being wrong can be assessed  or the risk of having contradicting reports.... 

Or the risk of inconvenience....

 

Why would a government agency spend two years investigating ncaa recruiting........... very little risk it...... is obvious, most everyone knows it happens and many years overdue............... and why would they avoid a report of an irrational gunman threatening a school?   The same reason....... its risky........ lots of false reports .... well one or two..... in that big pile of reports on irrational behavior of the guy over there.

Yes this is very true , but one of the wonderful things  about the internet is that it is easy to get info. from other sources outside of the U.S.

Re: Short lived story

As to your last question ,ask yourself who wants more gov. and more control over the lives of the people and lastly does not want to see very much change in the way this country is ran. If you answer this question by following the money and appetite for power you might be on to something.

If we could only have that political power. The gDP would be whatever we say it is. And we could blame someone else.
