"They keep coming to the table ... always bitching and complaining." --Dahlin Hancock, Texas cotton farmer, on the Brazilians.
The Friday Podcast: The Cotton Wars
We need four bales of cotton to make the Planet Money t-shirt. On today's Planet Money, we go shopping in Texas and Brazil — and find a long-running trade war.
We meet a Brazilian who took on the world's largest superpower, a Texas cotton farmer who's tired of hearing the Brazilians complain, and a guy named Renato — a.k.a. Retaliation Master.
