What the heck are you talking about, XBC? (To be honest with you, I didn't even realize that your previous comment was directed towards me.) What group is it that you seem to think I am "trying to lump Rauner into"? That's news to me... especially since I'm actually supporting Mr. Rauner this time -- if only because (in my opinion) he is (marginally) the lesser of two evils. (And,…

Oh, I see. Point well taken, AYHSMB. Thank you for the clarification. (I guess I'm just hoping that nobody starts throwing that kind of negative stuff around in relation to the Ebola issue. That's probably just wishful thinking on my part... but I'd like to hope that some sense of civility and humanity will win out -- at least while the doctors and nurses lives are at risk.) It's…

sorry for the late reply, eagle. Just seems as of late we can't do anything sensible without someone being accused of racism.

Record $140 billion in exports anticipated for this year

1 year, 1 month ago from USDA

But big decline projected for next year

While exports are forecast at a record 140-billion dollars for this fiscal year - exports in the next fiscal year are projected to drop five-billion dollars to 135-billion. That's according to USDA's Economic Research Service. The biggest decline is expected in oilseeds and products - down 5.4-billion dollars on lower soybean and meal prices.

Lower wheat, rice and feeds and fodders exports are expected to result in a 1.7-billion dollar drop in grain and feed exports. ERS forecasts a 700-million dollar decline in cotton exports due to lower domestic production and reduced demand from China. Little change is expected in exports of livestock, poultry and dairy products. Horticultural exports are actually to increase 2.5-billion to a record of 34.5-billion dollars. Agricultural imports for the 2014 fiscal year are forecast at a record 113-billion dollars - eight-billion higher than this fiscal year. The trade surplus is expected to fall to 22-billion - a 13-billion dollar drop. According to ERS - 22-billion would mark the smallest surplus since 2007.
