Eating NAFTA: Trade, Food Policies, and the Destruction of Mexico (Hardback)Alyshia Galvez (author)
- We can order this
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.
