Synopsis: Since the mid-1930s, the number of U.S. farms has declined sharply and average farm size has greatly increased. This trend is a tale of financial hardship and corporate control. At the same time, agriculture has increasingly contributed to the ecological unsustainability of the U.S. economy. As the authors argue, remedies to both financial unsustainability and its ecological equivalent are at hand.
