The Impact of Capitalism on Food

Gather under the Food for Change tent for a riveting discussion on the role of economics in shaping our current food system.

This “people’s think tank” will give you a new lens for viewing capitalism, cheap food, hunger, and the position of Slow Food in the change movement. We’ll explore the subjects of A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things (Raj Patel and Jason Moore, 2017). And we’ll provide a forum to exchange ideas on concrete next steps toward fundamental change.

Don’t miss this engaging talk with writer, activist and academic Raj Patel and Gail Myers, co-founder of Farms to Grow, Inc! Moderated by Tom Philpott of Mother Jones.
