Related: The American Government subsides, via corn subsidies, hog production (“hog” is the preferred term in the industry). On 30 May 2013 it was announced that China's Shuanghui to buy US pork producer [Smithfield] for $4.7bn -- BBCNews. It is a major transfer to Chinese ownership of the largest pork producer in the United States: China-US pork deal 'significant'-- BBCNews (30 May 2013).

Chinese are the biggest pork consumers in the world.

Question: Should the U.S.A. subsidize a Chinese company with American taxpayers’ dollars?
