Cheap bacon? - Thank Trumps Trade War!
« on: July 23, 2018, 10:15:12 PM »
Front page of today's Wall St. Journal.  Due to China and others putting tariffs on US meat, cold storage stockpiles of meat (including bacon), are hitting new records.  Billions of pounds of meat are in storage and they are almost out of room.

Prices of all meat in the U.S. are predicted to fall due to the massive stockpiles.

A silver lining in the dark cloud of an unnecessary trade war.

Bacon's so good I eat it with my cereal in the morning. Not at the same time as my cereal, actually IN my cereal.  :smitten:
