"There simply will be no sustainable future for humanity without a food and land use trajectory compatible with the conditions which nurtured the rise of human civilization. Written in clear and accessible language, The Economics of Sustainable Food should be required reading for national leaders, Ministers of Finance and Planning, and all involved in agriculture. A major contribution."
— Thomas E. Lovejoy, University Professor of Environmental Science and Policy, George Mason University, and Senior Fellow, United Nations Foundation
"Modern food systems are destroying both human and planetary health, but sustainable alternatives that enhance wellbeing are possible. Batini's book vividly describes these challenges and calls on economists to forge this urgent transition; I deeply hope this is heard as the future of human civilization is at stake."
— Walter Willett, Professor of Epidemiology and Nutrition, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
"At the IMF, we have supported carbon pricing and green investment as key tools to fight climate change. This valuable book highlights important issues macroeconomists often overlook—that reforming global food systems and land use can play a critical role in preserving the health of our planet, population, and economies."
— Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund
