„You don't need a large corporation to process local food or local timber and market it locally.“

"Compromise, Hell!"
Kontext: We need to confront honestly the issue of scale. Bigness has a charm and a drama that are seductive, especially to politicians and financiers; but bigness promotes greed, indifference, and damage, and often bigness is not necessary. You may need a large corporation to run an airline or to manufacture cars, but you don't need a large corporation to raise a chicken or a hog. You don't need a large corporation to process local food or local timber and market it locally.

„Nations and regions within nations must be left free — and should be encouraged — to develop the local food economies that best suit local needs and local conditions.“

—  Wendell Berry author 1934

"A Bad Big Idea".
Sex, Economy, Freedom & Community (1993)
Kontext: Anybody interested in solving, rather than profiting from, the problems of food production and distribution will see that in the long run the safest food supply is a local food supply, not a supply that is dependent on a global economy. Nations and regions within nations must be left free — and should be encouraged — to develop the local food economies that best suit local needs and local conditions.

„I stand by my assertions that although you can know what happens to any individual species that you modify, you cannot be certain what will happen to the ecosystem. Also, we have a strange situation where we have malnourished fat people. It’s not that we need more food. It’s that we need to manage our food system better. So when corporations seek government funding for genetic modification of food sources, I stroke my chin.“

—  Bill Nye American science educator, comedian, television host, actor, writer, scientist and former mechanical engineer 1955

„The reason why people starve is because of poverty … not because of a shortage of food … but because the only way to access the food is through the market“

—  Raj Patel British academic 1972

About global food economy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU5zT1r5Fk8 Marquette University
Kontext: When you introduce markets in food, then you introduce two very simple rules. The first rule is this: if you have money you can get the food from wherever around the world. The other rule markets impose is this: if you do not have money, you will starve. This is an important point … The reason why people starve is because of poverty … not because of a shortage of food … but because the only way to access the food is through the market.
