Abstract

Maybe it is too soon to label policies as dangerous but the events in Washington, D.C. are shaping up as mirror images of 1981. The period from 1971 through 1987 were, for the first decade, filled with exorbitance but the latter part of that time period was filled with economic woes. Those features resulted in the agricultural sector being wracked in a manner faintly reminiscent of the 1930s after failed economic policies caused one of the greatest downturns in the 20th Century.
