Food, Agriculture, and Capitalist Development

If what Eric Holt-Giménez calls our current corporate food regime is neither equitable nor resilient, then how do we go about changing or replacing it? Our starting point, says Holt-Giménez, must be to understand capitalism as a system and capitalism’s history as an evolving set of agendas and practices. He examines the role of agriculture and food systems in capitalism’s development, and also assesses forms of resistance to the current food regime.
