The poor may not have much money, but since they are the fastest growing sector of the sagging global economy, they represent an important new market for the monopolies of the corporate food regime. Claims of “farmer and entrepreneur empowerment” need to be balanced with how well agribusiness and giant retail have “empowered” family farmers and local businesses in the US and around the world… Sooner or later, just about everyone ends up going out of business in the corporate race to the bottom line.
