Raj Patel: Michelle Obama & Walmart, Unlikely Bedfellows
Commonwealth Club - SF Club Office
Raj Patel discusses the inequity of the haves and have-nots in the great food divide. Half the world is malnourished, the other half obese. Why is there such a large discrepancy between the haves and the have-nots for what we all need: food? Patel conducts a global investigation to make sense of the world food crisis and charges that “the food system is filled with choices made by a handful of powerful people, in smoke-filled rooms, over the objections of the majority.” Hear a story of nefarious false choices and of international resistance movements that takes you from seed to store to plate."
