“Empires of Food”
August 7, 2010 Leave a comment
I caught this show on NPR today. The program, concerning a new book Empires of Food: Feast, Famine, and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations, touches on a few issues I’ve been thinking a lot about recently, and echoes some topics brought up in the blog posts I pointed out yesterday. Particularly interesting is co-author Evan Fraser’s assertion that economy trumps ecology only at our great peril.
