This Zoom session is from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST: Combining Scholarship and Activism: An Intergenerational Exchange. Information about the session and registration is HERE. Bob Gottlieb and I will address how to combine food policy scholarship and activism in discussion with two much younger colleagues, Ivonne Quiroz and Lo Anderson.
China’s “outward” (foreign) investments in food and agriculture
USDA’s Economic Research Service has a new report on China’s investment in agriculture and farmland.
China’s outward agricultural investments are growing rapidly.
The purchases are everywhere: Indonesia, New Zealand, Bulgaria, Jamaica, etc., but some is in the United States.
China owns Smithfield, for example (see previous post).
The report is worth a serious read. If you aren’t up to that, take a look at the tables and figures. I wanted to reproduce a lot more of them.
