Subject: Nixon/Carter,exports,world


Below is a little tid bit a found while researching goodies on the embargo's of the 70's this summer. IMVSO the actions of Nixon and more so Jimmy Carter and yes interest rates WERE the cause of the 80's farm crisis... This is when we the USA BECAME KNOWN as a UNRELIABLE supply of grains and spurred world wide produce..... Nixon I do not known how that embargo was done,,, Carters was put on with a STOKE OF HIS PEN.....BUT that power was written in a prior agreement........................................

The quota below

"I believe food is now the great weapon we
. have for keeping peace in the world. I t w i l l
continue to be so for the next 20 years, as
other countries become more dependent on
American farm exports and become reluctant to
upset us."

Any older guys remember who said this ?
What prior agreement ?
What year ?
