Barry Flinchbaugh on Tariffs, Farm Bill and More

A conversation with K-State professor emeritus in agricultural economics Barry Flinchbaugh, which was among the sessions at the 2018 K-State Cooperative Symposium on the campus earlier this week:  among other things, he offers his insight on the long-term impacts of the current U.S. trade tariff approach, which he says will undoubtedly create inflation in the U.S. economy, and on the likelihood that the 2018 Farm Bill will be passed and signed into law before the end of the calendar year, if not sooner.
