They have put the global population – who have very limited access to the resources - at the centre of their debate and raised a concern… Continue reading COOPERATIVE: Ideal for an Egalitarian Big Society

…continue from last post. Again, Policy Matter ‘Food policy matters because food affects everyone’ (Hawkes, 2016 p3).

This is my reply to a comment by williambean2014 on economic thoughts on my blog that has been reblogged here ...
