Eating Better

An economic approach to food
How to find the best tortillas while traveling in Mexico? Why is American food often so bad today? Is agribusiness good for the global economy? Prolific author, blogger and economist Tyler Cowen takes on these questions--and many more--in his new book, “An Economist Gets Lunch New Rules for Everyday Foodies.

Cowen's economic approach to good food applies the following principle: “Food is a product of economic supply and demand, so try to figure out where the supplies are fresh, the suppliers are creative, and the demanders are informed.”
