Trade and currencies — a dangerous global situation Author

Let us start on a positive note: US President Donald Trump was rejoicing last Friday when he announced that the EU would increase its imports of non-hormone treated US beef by 46 percent within one year, which is set to increase by 90 percent altogether. This constitutes up to 35,000 tons of the 45,000 EU quota for imported beef. It will be at the expense of other importers, mainly Argentina and Uruguay. Over the past year the EU has also increased its liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports from the US by 370 percent and its soy bean imports by 100 percent.
