The US is not a socialist country. It is in fact a capitalist democracy. So the people can choose what they eat, what their children eat, how much to save….correct? Well, that is what I have been told to believe by some authors of Economic Thought.
However in real life capitalism is about lobbying. For e.g. people have the right to buy any ULIP as long as it is not illegal. If it makes money only for the manufacturer – well the investor is educated, is he not? Anyway it is in the interest of the ULIP manufacturer not to kill the client, so that he can keep buying. Therefore by sheer good economic sense, the ULIP manufacturer will not LOOT the client too much.
Now cut to food.
What is good food? Simple home made food. Doodhi, Kadhu, wheat ground at home, unpolished or wild rice, salads, organically grown vegetables, water, – but who will lobby for this? No one. What about parents? No clue, but they will not.
So what is good food? Pizza, Fries (do you know potatoes are good for health, so obviously fries should be good), Tomatoes are good for health (so ketchup must be good), wheat is good for you (so Pizza must be good for you..). This is what the food industry is telling the Congress. Of course Congress is believing it.
Where are all the good, moral, ethical, honest capitalistic food manufacturers in the USA – is it not in their interest that the people should live for another few ’00 years?
Well I cannot find them…experts tracking them please help!!
