Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

MORNING Midwest Digest, July 27, 2018

Max Armstrong talks about deja vu of the market disruption, making comparisons to the 1980s.

It's deja vu all over again, as we watch developments on things we've heard before, like trade wars and market disruption. Similar to the 1980s, markets have been severed in days, that took years to build.

Farmers are expressing disappointment in the aid package, as they'd rather have trade options. Trade, not aid, is the theme from them. Hopefully farmers can recover from this, sooner than in the past.
