"Patel shows how our faith in prices as a way of valuing the world is misplaced and reveals that our current crisis is not simply the result of too much of the wrong kind of economics but rather the larger failure of a democratically bankrupt political system. The solution he offers: discover democratic ways in which people, and not simply governments, can play a crucial role in deciding how we might share our world and its resources in common."--Provided by publisher

Today there are over a billion hungry people on the planet, more than ever before in history. While the global food crisis dropped out of the news in 2008, it returned in 2011 (and is threatening us again in 2012) and remains a painful reality for the world's poor and underserved. Why, in a time of record harvests, are a record number of people going hungry? And why are a handful of corporations making record profits? In Food Rebellions! Crisis and the Hunger for Justice, authors Eric Holt-Giménez and Raj Patel with Annie Shattuck offer us the real story behind the global food crisis and docum

Jia ge zhan zheng : ping gu di qiu jia zhi de xin fang shi by Raj Patel( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heute kennt man von allem den Preis und von nichts den Wert", sagte Oscar Wilde. Dieser Satz ist gegenwärtig aktueller denn je. Ob Klima- oder Wirtschaftskrise, dahinter steht nicht zuletzt eine Krise der Werte. Fast jeder und alles wird in die Kategorien von Märkten und Preisen gepresst. "Gibt es keinen besseren Weg, die Welt wertzuschätzen?", fragt Raj Patel. In unserem System ist eine Fabrikanlage mit rauchenden Schloten Milliarden Dollar wert, ein intakter Wald dagegen nichts. Ein Tomaten-Erntehelfer in den USA verdient in einem Jahr weniger als ein Wallstreet-Banker in einer Stunde. Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Seit den 70er-Jahren wurde unser Wirtschaftssystem von den Fundamentalisten des freien Marktes bestimmt, die jede Art der Regulierung ablehnten. Viele glaubten ihnen, legten Geld an und konsumierten - oft auf Pump. Wir nannten es "Freiheit", sind aber dabei, unsere Lebensgrundlagen zu zerstören und unsere Zukunft zu verspielen. Was können wir jetzt tun, um das Ruder herumzureißen? "Das Gegenteil von Konsum ist nicht Sparsamkeit, sondern Großzügigkeit", sagt Raj Patel. Was Not tut, ist nachhaltiges Wirtschaften und die Beachtung des Werts von sozialer Kooperation, Fairness, ökologischer und physischer Gesundheit. Dieses mitreissend geschriebene Buch zeigt mit zwingender Klarheit die Denkfehler des Systems und wie sie zu korrigieren sind

Stuffed and starved : from farm to fork the hidden battle for the world food system by Raj Patel( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revision of Stuffed and Starved first issued in 2007. The author takes us into the supermarket aisles and reveals the stories behind the products in our trolleys, some of them very dark indeed. His definitive account of the global food system ranges across GM crops, history and export issues, rising levels of obesity and other health crises. It's a mad world where we encounter Coca Cola "cosmeceuticals" that promise to improve complexion and breast size, where Nestlé owns Jenny Craig - and Unilever, home of Ben and Jerry's icecream, owns Slimfast. It is also a positive story of resistance in the paddy fields of India, the maize ejidos of Mexico and the Italian Slow Food kitchens, to name but a few. This is a groundbreaking look and the people and products of the New Food Order

Can anyone hear us? by Deepa Narayan-Parker( Book )

12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Voices of the Poor" provides a unique and detailed picture of the life of the poor and explains the constraints poor people face to escape from poverty in a way that more traditional survey techniques do not capture well. Each of the three volumes demonstrates the importance of voice and power in poor people's definition of poverty.
