This morning I heard an interesting talk given by Raj Patel on the subject of his new book "The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy." You can see a video of the talk here. He may stumble over a few of the words -- he says at one point that he talks more lucidly about things in his book -- but his message is a fascinating one. Listening to him talk about the hidden ecological and social costs of things like food, made me realize that I really should read his previous book "Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System." So right after breakfast at Renaud's I popped over to Chaucer's bookstore and picked up a copy. I will report back after I've read it. And feel free to leave me a comment about the book. I'd love to hear from someone who has read it.

Sounds like a great book to read. I am so into these types of books.
