    As a small tropical fruit farmer in Miami, I can recall when our local markets were distorted, directly affecting our economic lives and agricultural options. A couple of years after Hurricane Andrew, we saw prices on the longan fruit drop by almost 50 percent after imports arrived from Taiwan and China. That was tough on our family business and forced us to diversify our products.
