Harriet Friedmann is a sociologist, expert on the world food system. She worries that there are economic factors limiting the opportunity for farmers to adopt the newest and best methods of farming. Tom Newmark, who lives on his regenerative farm in Costa Rica, was formerly the head of a multinational food corporation, and he believes that all the major corporations are fully aware that the standard current agricultural methods are failing and must be replaced. He believes that these companies are taking the lead in promoting the changes that are inevitable because essential; there is no alternative.
