North Central Public Service Co. Modern Dry Cleaners What will be the impact of tho European Common Market on the United States if and when Great Britain joins? What is the Common Market? What are its implications for Iowa agriculture? These are a few of the questions Farm Economist Marvin Skadberg of Iowa State University says are being raised today. There are no clear-cut answers to the questions, but post experience and the goals of the Common Market do give some indications, Skadberg says. He explains that the European Common Market is an economic alliance presently composed of France, West Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. One of the major goals of the Common Market is to develop a common industrial and agricultural policy. In agriculture they have made some progress by advancing proposals which would be harmful to United States imports. One such measure would impose import levies which can be raised or lowered each year. They also propose preferential treatment for certain countries. If, for example, they designated Argentina as a preferred country, Argentina could sell their livestock to the 1 Common Market at a :ower price and reduce the market for United States livestock products. These plans of the Common Market would tend to protect their agriculture from foreign competition. Their farmers would be guarari« teed a high price and might cause agricultural output to expand. The United States —. a large exporte? of agricultural',products — would be priced out of the market. But, Skadberg points out, tho Common Market has been in existence since 1958. Thus far it has had little effect on our agricultural exports. Why the concern now? Mainly, he answers, because the United Kingdom is the world's largest importer of agricultural products and is also the largest single consumer of United States agricultural products. By joining the Common Market, the United Kingdom vviH be required to adopt the same protectionist policy of the Common Market countries — a direct reversal of her present policy. If the United Kingdom joins the Common Market, she will obtain many of the agricultural products brmerly imported from the United Hates from member nations of the Common Market. But this is not the only effect which may come by Britain joining the Common Market, Skadberg says. Formerly Britain belonged to another economic association This was with Denmark, Norway' Sweden, Switzerland, Austria Portugal and Finland. If Britain joins the Common Market, the other countries may follow. In fact, Denmark and Ireland have already applied for membership. Skadberg says the United States Foreign Agricultural Service has estimated that if all these countries join, it will include countries which do a total of $2 billion annual business with the United States agricultural products.
