Hello and welcome to U.S. Farm Report, I’m John Phipps. Well, fellow cliff-dwellers, don't look down. I’m starting to wonder if the austerity crisis has been a little oversold. Wall Street seems curiously calm, and I think those guys don't wait until the last minute to prepare defenses. Farmers are realizing we have much at stake in the negotiations. But that should also trigger a realization we are among the fabled "takers". You can't lose entitlements you don't get. In about a week, I expect more detailed information about what the world looks like over the cliff. But I suspect it will be less dramatic but every bit as painful as we have heard.
