Imagine a Touchable World

Lecture on agroindustry

The globalized system of food production, processing, and distribution has detrimental effects on our drinking water, the air, and the soil, which have become depleted and poisoned as a result, on the economies of less powerful and affluent countries, on our health, and on the conditions of workers paid less than a living wage to make our food appear in supermarkets and restaurants as if by magic. Inside the United States, the heartland and an aggressive exporter of industrial food production, there is currently an accelerated trend toward organic and locally produced food. The question is: What are the strengths and weaknesses of efforts to create sustainable agriculture? And how can we connect these positive efforts to movements for food security in other parts of the world?
