Eating NAFTA: Trade, Food Policies, and the Destruction of Mexico (Hardback)Alyshia Galvez (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
In her gripping new book, Alyshia Galvez exposes how changes in policy following NAFTA have fundamentally altered one of the most basic elements of life in Mexico-sustenance. Mexicans are faced with a food system that favors food security over subsistence agriculture, development over sustainability, market participation over social welfare, and ideologies of self-care over public health. Trade agreements negotiated to improve lives have resulted in unintended consequences for people's everyday lives.
