BASED, Episode 5!

How Government and Big Ag Make Us Unwell

America is the wealthiest country in history, and yet we’re unwell. Our obesity rates continue to outrank others and our life expectancy lags too. What if there’s a political reason for our poor outcomes?

Episode 5 of BASED traces back public policy in agriculture and shows listeners how big government got in bed with the industry.

I look at subsidies, corporate welfare, and other crony practices that harm independent farms, take advantage of unsuspecting consumers, and enrich the connected few.

Government spends billions on farm subsidies that make us sick and fat. Then they mislead us on nutrition and spend our taxes marketing us the crud they subsidize. This is an issue that should infuriate everyone.
