Birke Baehr - What's wrong with our food system

Of course he is right. But give him 15 to 20 years when he is trying to raise a family, pay a mortgage, keep a car on the road, save money for his retirement and a fund for his kids college. All while working a job paying far less than he should be earning. (look at the stats for cost of living verses wage increases) Then when he stands in the grocer with a limited amount of cash will he still buy the more expensive organic?

That's right. Capitalism is the best economic model available at this time. With capitalism, each person gets out of society what they put into it. If you're lazy and don't work hard, you will not get much of the pie. If you work hard, go to school and learn a trade that is highly sought after, you will get more of the pie. Capitalism is how people can live the "American Dream."

American Dream. IF you got rich parents who can put you in right school so you can get an education, so you can earn money. American dream is nowadays Scandinavian dream, where everyone has equal opportunity to succeed. In America you need rich parents.

It is not true that you need rich parents. There are many examples of current rich people that had poor parents. Examples: Howard Schultz worth 1.5 billion. He was born on July 19, 1953, in a government housing project in Brooklyn, New York. His father was a truck driver. Sam Walton worth $23 billion. He helped his family out by milking the cow and driving the milk out to customers. He also delivered newspapers and sold magazine subscriptions. Sheldon Adelson worth $20.5 billion. His father drove a taxi and mother ran a knitting store. Kirk Kerkorian worth $16 billion. Parents were Armenian immigrants, learned English on the streets and dropped out of eighth grade to become a boxer. John Paul DeJoria worth $4 billion. His parents divorced by the time he was two years old, and at nine he began selling Christmas cards and newspapers with his older brother to support his family. There are too many to list them all but this should give you the idea.

Latest comment: First off, I cannot list all the rich people in America for you. There simply isn't enough time or space for me to do that for you. Secondly, the population is larger than the number of rich people but that proves my point. Some of them are lazy and some are hard workers. So with capitalism, you can get a larger piece of the pie if you earn it. That will cause some people to get less of the pie but that's okay because we are trying to encourage hard work.

It takes a long time to make that much money so of course these people are old. Think someone can go from poverty to being worth billions overnight? Now that would be a challenging feat regardless what kind of education you have.
