Milestone for imports from China, Mexico, Brazil

Most people assume U.S. imports are dominated by stuff from developing nations such as China and from the oil producers in OPEC. But Mike Mandel points out that only last year did imports from China, Brazil and Mexico surpass those from developed nations in the G6 -- France, Germany, Italy, UK, Canada and Japan. Imports in either of those categories dwarf those from OPEC. changingimports.gif

Imagine how much higher those numbers would be if all the Mexican agricultural output was counted as well.

I agree with MrRational. Those numbers would be higher if all the Mexican agricultural output was counted as well.
