The food commons
This article presents a vision of food as a public good, to be managed in the commons and not solely by private market exchanges. As with any truly novel, groundbreaking vision, it is hard to even imagine a world in which food were regarding like air, or wildlife, or public health, namely as a public good and not a private one. But it is a vision worth considering and striving for, given all the problems that arise from treating food like any other private good.
