The Plenty Problem

Why there is more food, more noise, and more competition, and what to do about it

(Based on a talk I gave at the Independent Food and Drink Academy, Leeds, September 2017)

The biggest driver of change right now is technology. It may not always feel like it, with Trump and Brexit, the economy and the climate.

But while all these things are changing the world at a linear rate, some of them in ways that can be reversed, technology continues to drive change at an exponential rate.

And you can’t un-invent technology (though if Lil’ Kim gets his way, we may be fighting the next World War with sticks and stones).
