Gastro-capitalism: a political history of food4:15pm Sun 31 Mar
About this session
Capitalism shapes every element of our lives, from the conditions we work in to what we put on our plates. Food production, distribution, and consumption patterns are shaped by the capitalist class. This has created a world where a billion are undernourished, millions go without food every day, and the biggest food company in the world, Nestle, admits that more than 60% of its products are bad for people. This session will cover how the priorities of capitalist rule determine what we eat.
