If you like your food local, organic, or from a truck, government regulation
might be your biggest obstacle. American restaurants lobby to choke off food trucks, and
federal regulation of food safety leads to more consolidation in the industry. Moreover,
farmers markets struggle to survive under the heavy hand of government.What if food
safety regulation is not about limiting the germs in our dinner, but is rather about limiting
competition in America’s food industry? What if federal and local rules actually protect
incumbent businesses instead of consumers? Join us for a panel discussion about food
competition, regulation, and safety.
This event is part of AEI’s Culture of Competition Project.
