Meatonomics is a new book by David Simon. VegNews called it "Riveting"... John Robbins said "Spectacularly Important"... Publishers Weekly assessed it as “provocative and persuasive.” and the Huffington Post says it is “superbly researched,” and “deserves a prime spot in the library of everyone who cares about the politics of food.”
Join author David Robinson Simon for an eye-opening, fact-filled discussion about MEATONOMICS (Conari Press, 2013). It’s the first book to explore the unseen economic forces that drive our animal food system and the strange ways these forces affect our spending, eating, health, prosperity, and longevity.
One startling revelation is that consumers have largely lost the ability to decide for ourselves what – and how much – to eat. Instead, those decisions are made for us by meat and dairy producers who control our buying choices with artificially low prices, misleading messaging, and heavy control over legislation and regulation. Discover what makes this bizarre system tick and how it can be fixed.
This event is free and open to all; please invite anyone you think may be interested.
