Capital isn't reaching the masses the way it could; a vast majority of it is also exported from communities towards Wall Street; and because money shouldn't be an end in itself, like quarterly earnings expectations, etc.
I don't believe sustainable food systems are inherently local; that is a very narrow view. Farmers around the globe are affected by food consumption choices made in Cambridge, MA - making sure we see and understand that is how I support a more equitable/just system. I think information is key here, and many food firms are not transparent.
