Raj Patel @ ACRL

It was refreshing to hear a sustainability activist academic Raj Patel speak at the national Association College and Research Libraries biannual conference.  Raj Patel is UC Berkeley’s Center for African Studies, an Honorary Research Fellow at the School of Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, and a fellow at The Institute for Food and Development Policy, and spoke of global economic systems of interdependence and the international food crisis.  He has written over 5 books including the one he promoted at this talk The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democracy. Check out the video and a good purchase for your library perhaps.
