Re: Salad vs. Big Mac

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 14 years ago, in 2010, on the World Wide Web.

Salad vs. Big Mac. Shakesville (2010-03-27):

Via Economix; created by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.If you can’t view the image, it’s a graphic labeled “Why Does a Salad Cost More Than a Big Mac?” featuring two pyramids. The one on the left is labeled “Federal Subsidies for Food Production, 1995-2005,” and it shows the breakdown…

Why does a salad cost more than a Big Mac?

Because government subsidizes some agribusiness more than others.

The market for food in a freed society would look nothing like the rigged industrial meat market that we have today.
