U.S. picks up on Australia's barley loss

As Australia’s barley industry has been impacted by anti-dumping tariffs issued by China, the American Grains Industry has been actively promoting US barley and malt to the Chinese brewing sector.

This pattern is consistent with what has happened with beef and wine and lobster where Auatralia’s loss has been the gain of others, including the USA.

In matters of trade and economic interest, no-one should be under any illusion that erstwhile security alliances will somehow foreswear economic cannibalism from erstwhile protectors and allies.

A smarter, independent frame is needed.
