Agricultural Dumping in the Chicken Sector: The Case of Western and Central Africa (pdf)
fodder for the chicken bone theory...

"Since the beginning of the 90s, chicken exports from the EU to coastal countries of Western and Central Africa have increased significantly. Those exports are usually made of frozen cut pieces, such as neck, back, legs, and wings. EU consumers trend to eat breast rather than whole chicken, and there is no market in the EU for others cut pieces, except for pet food. European poultry processing industry has the choice between pet food and export to poor countries at low costs, to sell those residues."

only a constant factor worse than optimal
Kragen on optimization ... when should you buy a time-saving appliance? and what about trying to live on a food diet at the minimum wage level? does monotony of diet affect the outcome?

White House Seeks to Change International Food Aid
Foreign "aid" remains an euphemism, it is often feel good recycling The administration is proposing that the government buy food in developing countries instead of shipping food from American farmers overseas, a process that typically takes months. The proposed change to the international food aid program is expected to save millions in shipping costs and get food more quickly to areas that need it.

Balanced Diets
Dan Mason in full effect... he was arguing about this at our open house: the propensity to eat clay... "The Otomacs ate earth, “a prodigious quantity” of it. During the two to three months of the rainy season, when the high and turbulent waters of the river made fishing difficult, they claimed to eat nothing but."

Inflation diet: same price, less product
At some point, the units of measure became units of packaging, where consumers ask for a “pound of coffee” but don’t recognize that the package holds just 12 ounces.
