Bleakley commented on the effect of US-Mexico border shutdown on economy

an In The Media Reference

"If Trump closes Mexican border, avocados could cost more and auto factories could shut" - USA Today. 4/2/2019.

Economist Hoyt Bleakley likened a brief shutdown of a few days or a week to a blizzard that does little damage to the economy as shippers rapidly catch up.

"A Trump administration shutdown of the U.S.-Mexico border would quickly spread across the economy, spiking fruit and vegetable prices, spawning food shortages, shutting production lines and throwing Americans out of work, at least temporarily."
