Should Brazil – or any other country – have veto power over U.S. farm policy? That’s an issue that has arisen following a World Trade Organization ruling that gave the Brazilian government the authority to suspend U.S. intellectual property rights. Under the ruling, a result of the case Brazil brought against the U.S. cotton program, Brazil can invoke the suspension if it is not satisfied with the language of the 2012 farm bill. That, as National Cotton Council President Mark Lange says in this interview with Farm Press Editor Forrest Laws, is unprecedented in the world of trade policy. Lange was interviewed following his speech at the Delta Council’s mid-year Board of Directors meeting in Stoneville, Miss.
