A leading economist, who may very well turn out to be this decade s Thomas Friedman (Wall Street Journal), illuminates the state of American food today
Tyler Cowen, one of the most influential economists of the last decade, wants you to know that just about everything you ve heard about how to get good food is wrong. Drawing on a provocative range of examples from around the globe, Cowen reveals why airplane food is bad, but airport food is improving, why restaurants full of happy, attractive people usually serve mediocre meals, and why American food has improved as Americans drink more wine. At a time when obesity is on the rise and forty-four million Americans receive food stamps, "An Economist Gets Lunch" will revolutionize the way we eat today and show us how we re going to feed the world tomorrow."
