Farming is dead for most people. In this industrial age, everything is done by machine and on enormous scales and it’s scarring the planet.
Sustainable food systems are those that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The Economics of Sustainable Food wants to help us understand the cost to ourselves and to the earth of the way we eat and farm.
Why We Love The Economics of Sustainable Food
Nicoletta Batini pulls no punches here. The full horrors of big agriculture are laid bare so that we can appreciate the harm we are doing to ourselves.
Then, The Economics of Sustainable Food lays out the business case and the political case for sustainable farming and eating.
And it pulls in plenty of evidence from around the world to show how easy this can be without causing undue distress to people as a change is made.
There is no doubt in our minds that the way we eat is not sustainable and in many cases, it’s also hideously cruel.
The Economics of Sustainable Food is a road map to a better future and we’d all be better off if we read it and acted upon it.
