Eating Tomorow

I personally found this reading to be a little hard to understand because of all of the new terms and ideas in it and what I did understand was very frustrating. It is not a new idea that big businesses gain power and only care about making a profit. However, I thought that the depiction of agribusinesses, particularly in the chapter on Malawi, was terrible because of the ways that these businesses acted to keep people in poverty and hunger. It leads me to wonder about what the role of large businesses and the free market should play in food production, and whether or not more government oversight would be a good thing in some situations. I was also shocked at how the actions of these businesses where often marketed as being in the best intrest of the country and helping to feed people, when in fact they where doing the opposite. Overall it was a very interesting reading.
