American farmers welcome announcements of increased exports of grain and agricultural commodities. Increases in exports lead to increases in prices and farm income which spreads with multiplier effects throughout the agribusiness, industry, and rural areas. Increased exports may also entail higher consumer prices, but this effect is small relative to prosperity engendered in rural communities and the increased level of economic activity throughout the economy. Consequently, the support and promotion of farm exports easily gains acceptance from all parts of the political spectrum.
