Junk Food Subsidies Since 1995 Could Buy Nearly 52 Billion Twinkies

Junk Food Subsidies Since 1995 Could Buy Nearly 52 Billion Twinkies | Sports Facility Mangement | Scoop.it
Make no mistake, the U.S. federal government is doing everything it can to make sure your junk food urges are fulfilled on the cheap.

 

A new study, conducted by a federation of state Public Interest Research Groups, or U.S. PIRG, finds that the U.S. government has spent $19.2 billion subsidizing corn and soy junk food ingredients since 1995.

 

That completely dwarfs the $689 million allotted for Apple subsidies over that period, even though apples are the only fruit or vegetable to receive a substantial government subsidy.

 

To put that into perspective, U.S. PIRG notes, the money spent on junk food subsidies since 1995 is enough to buy nearly 52 billion Twinkies, which, if laid out end to end, could encircle the globe 132 times...

Where do sports stadiums get their junk food and why is cheap for them to get them but expensive for them to sell them

Not only do those insane subsidies for corn and soy make sure junk food is cheap, compromising everyone's health, they also allow the flooding of developing countries with cheap or "free" grains sent as humanitarian aid.

That "aid" is utterly ruinous to the local agriculture of those countries, making it no longer worthwhile to grow food grains locally, leading of course to more starvation...

Subsidized destruction of health and agriculture around the world ... to make a few corporations richer.

Manage your tickets while boosting revenue! A win, win situation.

Jon Brewer's curator insight, August 21, 2013 7:27 PM

It's like an ad, but if it can do what it advertises, some facilities might benefit from something like this to help with ticket sales, memberships, season passes, etc.

Kyle Seeley's curator insight, April 24, 2014 10:03 AM

Integrating Risk Management into Strategic Planning

Integrating Risk Management into Strategic Planning | Sports Facility Mangement | Scoop.it

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is now a top priority for directors and executive management. Changes in corporate governance, increased political risk, rise in corporate scandals, rapid changes in information technologies, increased globalization, increased complexity of business transactions, increased competition, increased natural disasters and the recent fallout from the global financial crisis have all heightened the need for strategic enterprise risk management.
