Blog Posts by Turner Jensen
Two recent articles by Turner Jensen, DTB AgriTrade’s 2023 summer intern and a law student at the University of Nebraska, offer insightful perspectives on two issues impacting U.S. trade relations: the potential renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) and the ongoing biotech dispute with Mexico.
In Jensen’s first article, “GSP Renewal Would Strengthen US Trade at Home and Abroad,” he examines the potential benefits of renewing the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) program. The GSP grants duty-free access to US markets for certain products from developing countries, promoting economic growth and fostering stronger trade partnerships. Jensen argues that renewing the program would not only benefit developing countries but also create jobs and lower prices for American consumers.
His second article, “Assessing the US-Mexico Biotech Dispute,” dives into the ongoing conflict between the US and Mexico regarding genetically modified (GMO) crops. He delves into the scientific and legal arguments surrounding the dispute, highlighting the concerns raised by Mexico and the potential economic and political repercussions for both countries.
