Summary
Corporate farms have solved so many of the world's problems. In addition to making healthy food accessible and affordable to more people, they provide jobs in communities that sorely need them. But do corporations have too much power over food? Do they benefit from unfair tax breaks? Are their profit-driven practices hurting the environment, perhaps irreparably? And what does their success mean for the family farmer? This thought-provoking volume contains Full-Color Photographs, Bibliography, Charts, Graphs, Tables, Detailed Table of Contents, Further Information Section, Index, Primary Sources, Sidebars, Websites
