Pollan Says Big Ag’s in Trouble
I’m usually an admirer of Michael Pollan, but his last New York Times article totally sucked, and I worried he had jumped the shark.
But now he’s back with what might turn out to be his best and most influential piece yet. He talks about how health care reform is going to necessitate an overhaul of America’s food system. His logic is impeccable.
What we’re about to see is a death match between the agribusiness and insurance lobbies. The agribusiness lobby is bigger and stronger, but the insurance lobby’s got a gun. Link.
