Tyler Cowen: "An Economist Gets Lunch: New Rules for Everyday Foodies"

One of the most influential economists of the decade-and The New York Times bestselling author of The Great Stagnation-boldly argues that just about everything you've heard about food is wrong.

Food snobbery is killing entrepreneurship and innovation, says economist, preeminent social commentator, and maverick dining guide blogger Tyler Cowen. Americans are becoming angry that our agricultural practices have led to global warming-but while food snobs are right that local food tastes better, they're wrong that it is better for the environment, and they are wrong that cheap food is bad food. The food world needs to know that you don't have to spend more to eat healthy, green, exciting meals. At last, some good news from an economist!

Tyler Cowen discusses everything from slow food to fast food, from agriculture to gourmet culture, from modernist cuisine to how to pick the best street vendor. He shows why airplane food is bad but airport food is good; why restaurants full of happy, attractive people serve mediocre meals; and why American food has improved as Americans drink more wine. And most important of all, he shows how to get good, cheap eats just about anywhere.

Just as The Great Stagnation was Cowen's response to all the fashionable thinking about the economic crisis, An Economist Gets Lunch is his response to all the fashionable thinking about food. Provocative, incisive, and as enjoyable as a juicy, grass-fed burger, it will influence what you'll choose to eat today and how we're going to feed the world tomorrow.

    Mēs pēc stundām sēdējām pie kanāla. Pārdaugavā, tur ir tāda vieta, kur neviena cita parasti nav. Tur arī nebija, ko darīt, bet Gustavs parasti kaut ko centās izdomāt. Šoreiz viņš rādīja man savu telefonu.

    No Kārļa jau trešo dienu nebija nekādu ziņu. Viņa tālrunis bija izslēgts, e-pasti palika bez atbildes. Viņš nereaģēja pat tad, kad feisbukā ar viņa vārdu ietagoju fotogrāfiju, kurā bija redzams viens no Muceniekos mītošajiem bēgļiem.
