Australian Cotton growers reap a bumper crop

China was the largest importer of Australian cotton until they spat the dummy because we told them to pull their heads in. What did they do in retaliation to being slapped on the wrist?
They behaved like a child and said we will impose huge tariffs on your cotton making your industry unprofitable.
Australian growers said, "Get stuffed China"
Our growers have found other buyers around the world and are doing just nicely, thank you.
My wish is that when China says "We want your cotton" our buyers will tell them to "go jump off a cliff"

We should stop selling coal and iron ore to them. They are too aggressive.

@Ozdharma That is what we would like to do. Money/profits rule every decision. 🙁

And thats why trade wars never work long term..And also why you shouldnt subsidize farming. The iron the coal and even the Soy beans.. We end up making a greater profit from anyone who tries to bully us in the market..😷

@LordShadowfire Yes, in reality no one will.
Australia will resume cotton trade with China.
No back bone to permanently rid China as a trade partner.
Dollars trump all else.
