Assuming that target issues highlighted in campaigns come from economic problems, perhaps theres a chance food could be a hot topic in the next generation. According to The Economist's report of The World in 2013 festival in New York,
"As energy and food production becomes more complex and expensive... Western society will be forced into changing its diet to a more ecologically sustainable model... the high cost of cheap food will be one of the big drivers of change"Not only that, but perhaps the high rates of obesity will start to correlate with the high rates of debt in this country. We can only hope that food issues simmer their way to the political stage, and then perhaps shape what we as Americans find important. It is amazing the influence political campaigns can have on what citizens openly fight for. Maybe if the topic of food systems comes to the campaign agenda, people will find a true voice and opinion about it.
