ES 10 04/20 Food Justice 20/04/2011 11:08:00 Most of justice throughout the 20 th  century had to do with farm labor Exploitation of agricultural labor and the bracero program. In the 70s, justice for small farmers became an important concern More recently, late 80s/early 90s, justice for eaters in general came up Now, specific eaters in food deserts The idea that our gaining ascendancy in the US in our approach to food is very  flawed. The ideas are appalling.  Historians and humanists look back at contempt with governments that were  responsible for millions of death in the 18 th -19 th  centuries What is not causing justice issues Scarcity of food and/or inadequate production of food is not an issue o We waste 20-30% of what we produce and all the inputs that go into  that o The better focus of attention is food prices, access to food, and  entitlements Malthus o An Essay on the Principle of Population (1798-1826) o Hunger is caused by scarcity o Population growth gets checked by famine and disease; that is good

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
