Right now I’m reading a double economic doozy, Raj Patel’s “The Value of Nothing” and David Walker’s “Comeback America.” For all our pomp, wealth and ego we’ve allowed our leaders to guide us into an economic minefield…and they don’t have a map or the brains to get us out.

This is not a cheery, feel good book regardless of what the back cover blurbs say. Being hungry and getting fed is serious business for everyone—the starving farmer, GMO seed companies, the multi-national distributors and the end consumer. Raj Patel gets right down to the meaty heart of the most under reported and least understood of all the vital services—food—its production, transportation and distribution.
