    Default Nabisco left because...Sugar is too expensive here...

    Trump was upset that the all America Oreo will now be made in Mexico.. While it does point out trade problems, the real problem is that for some reason, and I suspect regulations, sugar is twice as expensive here as in Mexico..

    Sugar has been grown in the U.S for a couple hundred years, but it turns out the climate in the U.S. isnít well suited for growing sugar. This can make it more costly to produce in the U.S. than other countries like Brazil and India that have suitable climates. As you might imagine, the sugar lobbyists have been able to arrange a very sweet deal for sugar farmers in the U.S for many decades. The details are complicated, but the government essentially guarantees a lucrative price for sugar producers and limits the amount of sugar imports
    To add insult to injury, taxpayers are also paying higher prices at the grocery store for the same commodities they subsidize.

    I'm not a fan of farm subsidies. But if farm subsidies actually do "guarantee a lucrative price", then moving Oreo production to Mexico because the cost of sugar is lower..........there s a problem here.

    Like what? More subsidies? What else could he do to lower the price of sugar to compete with countries where climate allows it to be produced cheaper?

    Agreed to a point.

    I certainly don't agree with subsidies that are propping up a crop that doesn't make sense.

    Once again, I sure wish we annexed Cuba when we had the chance.
