Raj Patel: Stuffed and Starved, Still

Activist; Academic; Author, Stuffed and Starved, The Value of Nothing

In conversation with Rose Aguilar, Host, "Your Call" on KALW 91.7 FM

Half the world is malnourished, the other half obese. Why is there such a large discrepancy between the haves and the have-nots for what we all need: food? Patel conducts a global investigation to make sense of the world food crisis and charges that “the food system is filled with choices made by a handful of powerful people, in smoke-filled rooms, over the objections of the majority.” Hear a story of nefarious false choices and of international resistance movements that takes you from seed to store to plate.
