    A cute little rap, but it doesn’t acknowledge the complex nuances of the raw milk struggle. It is mostly just propoganda for neo-liberal economic doctrines.

    I would propose this economic theory in leui:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropological_theories_of_value

    “The basic premise [of Anthropological theories of value] is that economic activities can only be fully understood in the context of the society that creates them. The concept of “value” is a social construct, and as such is defined by the culture using the concept. Yet we can gain some insights into modern patterns of exchange, value, and wealth by examining previous societies. An anthropological approach to economic processes allows us to critically examine the cultural biases inherent in the principles of modern economics. Anthropological linguistics is a related field which looks at the terms we use to describe economic relations and the ecologies they are set within. Many anthropological economists (or economic anthropologists) are reacting against what they see as the portrayal of modern society as an economic machine that merely produces and consumes.”
