Abstract:

Examines the ethical questions at the heart of the globalization debate. Reveals the profound negative impact of globalization on our food system. Exposes the myths that hunger is the result of scarcity, that small countries cannot feed themselves, and that only market-driven, chemically-based, industrial agriculture can feed the world. Shows that agribusiness is squeezing out small farmers and that trade liberalization, by allowing mass produced, low-cost food exports to developing countries is destroying peoples' ability to feed themselves. Discusses the links between food security and social development and tells how women particularly are affected. Looks at the myths surrounding the altering and patenting of life forms, factory farming, and the degradation of the environment.
