Economics of the 100-Mile Diet

New Media  | 05 de noviembre de 2010  | Vistas: 8

Michael A. Walker speaks about economic freedom and cost reduction in our economies. He begins by explaining the main disadvantages of the 100-Mile Diet that somehow restrict exchange and productivity. He explains how societies that migrate from an agricultural economy to a more industrial one have the opportunity of increasing the life quality of people and demonstrates his theory by using different charts and case studies. He explains how this transition allows a much more free society, which ultimately leads to a wealthier one. He describes how education has an important part in this elemental transformation and how real cost reduction will be facilitated by having literate people in every society.
