Our readings this week revolve around the relationship between human agency in the realm of culture and the structuring effects of the global economy. If the global food system produces high rates of hunger, obesity, diabetes and other forms of disease, what can be done in the realm of culture, economics and politics to reverse this downward spiral of declining human health? Using at least three readings, provide one solution for each of the three categories (cultural, economic and political) that could reshape our global food system to sustain human health and happiness instead of the current system of maximum profit generation that produces illness, disease and death.
