Dr. John Ikerd, Professor Emeritus of Agriculture and Applied Economics at the University of Missouri, talks about : 

  • How the calorie count in our food is skyrocketing as the nutrient density plummets
  • How the loss of independent agriculture producers is NOT cyclical but rather a fundamental transformation of the system (and why you shouldn’t believe anyone who tries to convince you otherwise)
  • How large operations are gaining market power and then overproducing—and the problems this creates
  • How we have sacrificed so many things in our food system by chasing a very narrow definition of efficiency
  • The Iowa Alliance for Responsible Agriculture
  • How we can put personal connection back in our food system
