Professor Pahnke Discusses How Closure of Mexico Border Would Affect Farm Economy

Thursday, April 04, 2019
WISCONSIN STATE FARMER -- Anthony Pahnke, vice president of Family Farm Defenders and an assistant professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University, said Mexico may choose to instead focus on domestic policy, or look to other markets like Europe instead of dealing with the U.S. “The current government in Mexico is making plans to provide some domestic support programs for its small farmers, a step that would make the country’s rural economy more independent of free trade and more stable,” Pahnke said.
