Description: Acclaimed in hardcover as “a meticulously researched tour de force” (Publishers Weekly), and “a terrific primer on the corporate control of food in the U.S., and the actions of those who fight back” (Raj Patel), Foodopoly takes aim at the real culprit behind America’s food crisis: the massive consolidation and corporate control of food production, which prevents farmers from raising healthy crops and limits the choices that people can make in the grocery store.“A meticulously documented account of how we have lost control of our food system” (Steve Gliessman), Foodopoly presents a shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra. Hauter demonstrates how the impacts ripple far and wide, from economic stagnation in rural communities at home, to famines in poor countries overseas. In the end, she illustrates how solving this crisis will require a complete structural shift, a grassroots movement to reshape our food system from seed to table--a change that is about politics, not just personal choice.
