Unlimited trade with other countries helps reduce the price of the goods purchased here in the US. If we look at the production cost of garlic here and compare it with the cost overseas in China we can get a clear picture of what I am talking about. As it stands right now we are producing garlic at an average price of $7,353.77 per acre, the garlic farms in China are producing the same amount, (1 acre) at prices well below what our farmers are paying. Their cash crops are costing them as little as $2,150.67 per acre, that is quite a difference in price. Now if we add in the shipping cost to the total production cost for the product from China we are still only spending about 5 thousand dollars an acre.
