Dr. Greg Upton On Trade Wars

Talk 107.3

Dr. Greg Upton joined the show to talk about how President Trump’s tariffs could effect Louisiana’s exports. Dr. Upton explains how vulnerable Louisiana is to a trade war.  He talks about the energy production in the last 10 years and how it has plateaued which means the market is not getting better so we have to export to other countries in Asia.  Because of the trade war with China, Louisiana’s economy could take a major hit because of this.  Upton discusses why this is the case and why there are tariffs on certain products.
