Policy Shifts in Argentina: Discussing Macri's Opening Months

In this conversation, Mark Jones of Rice University and the Baker Institute analyzes president Mauricio Macri and his policy shifts in Argentina.

At the time of the interview, the Monsanto Corp. threatened it would no longer sell genetically modified soybeans to Argentina because the country was refusing to collect the copyright fees on the genetically modified seeds. Argentina is the largest exporter of soybeans in the world.

Since that time, both sides have negotiated deal where Argentina will screen crops and ask farmers to pay Monsanto the appropriate fees.
