Mexico Lifts Trade Tariffs for U.S. Produce

Via Produce News Daily:
The produce industry welcomed news that Mexico formally lifted tariffs that have amounted to more than $900 million of U.S. agricultural products since 2009, settling a costly dispute over a Mexican trucking pilot program. Mexico, the third-largest trading partner for the United States, imposed the tariffs after years of squabbling over a provision in the North American Free Trade Agreement that allowed Mexican long-haul trucks to enter U.S. highways in 2000. Congress blocked funding for the program, which set off a political dispute between the two countries. Top U.S. and Mexican officials negotiated the agreement this summer, but it wasn't until Oct. 21 that embassy officials celebrated the first truck crossing at the World Trade Bridge in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, and the tariffs officially were dropped to zero.

Investors Interested in Obama's National Foreclosure Plan

Via Released in news today, the Obama administration is currently figuring out how to encourage private companies and investors to buy foreclosed properties held by the government. Due to the increasing amount of foreclosures in the U.S., officials want private entities to take over as much as $30 billion in single-family properties that are currently on the books of government-run Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration and could be a huge relief for these institutions.

According to sources, several money managers with large fixed income funds are interested and a recent request for ideas on how to construct a program received nearly 4,000 responses. A glut of foreclosures has been heavy on home prices and the overall economy. An effort to get some of that inventory off the market could help stabilize it, while providing affordable rental options to Americans unable to obtain a mortgage.
