Greg Mankiw on beef exports to Japan

Greg Mankiw reports on the difficulties US beef producers are having selling in the Japanese market.

He blames it on Australian competition.

Does he not know that the problem is that Team Bush will not allow American beef exporters to inspect their beef for mad cow disease?

Does he really have such a low opinion of the readers of his blog that believes he can get away with stuff like this?

No wonder he does not allow comments.
