Summary

Peter Rosset argues that what is at stake is the very future of our global food system of each country's unique agricultural and farming systems and the livelihoods of rural people in both the rich industrial countries and the South. He unravels the complex ways in which agriculture in the North is supported subsidized etc. and argues for the future of agriculture to be taken completely out of the WTO's ambit since food is not just another commodity but something which goes to the heart of human livelihood local cultures and national security.
