Along the Food Chain with Michael Olson…

1133: Capitalism or Socialism?

Eric Holt Gimenez, PhD
Author, Foodies Guide to Capitalism
Executive Director, Food First

Which can best feed us: capitalism or socialism?

Anyone who has owned or worked on a commercial farm did so for compensation. That compensation is the driving force of capitalism, and capitalism is how we feed ourselves.

But some, like Eric Holt Gimenez, author of A Foodies Guide to Capitalism, claim that capitalism is the reason why billions go hungry in the midst of so much abundance, why obesity has become a world-wide epidemic; and why land-grabbing, global warming and environmental pollution are increasing.

Holt-Gimenez suggests the only way to rid the world’s food system of racism, classism, and patriarchy is to see and understand the fundamental flaws of capitalism.

And so we ask….

How does capitalism drive our food chain?

Why is capitalism causing so much trouble?

Which can best feed us: capitalism or socialism?
