About the Author

Frederick Kaufman, an English professor by training and profession, has for the past decade focused his attention on the fiction that is money. His unorthodox insights into the ways of Wall Street have resulted in numerous magazine articles for publications ranging from Scientific American to Wired to Foreign Policy to Harper's, as well as television appearances on NBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business Network, and Democracy Now!, and invitations to lecture in both the United States and Europe, including an address to the General Assembly of the United Nations.


Praise for Bet the Farm: How Food Stopped Being Food

"[An] energetic, wide-ranging work of investigative journalism...this is neither dry argumentative soup nor antiglobalization polemic, and the villains aren't black and white; Kaufman's tone is subtly ironic without being snarky--a nice addition to Michael Pollan." --Publishers Weekly

"A revealing view into commodity markets and food pricing." --Kirkus Reviews

"Kaufman makes a convincing and terrifying case that the same merchant bankers who destroyed our housing market--and economy--five years ago are at it again. This time their target is the world's food supply." --Barry Estabrook, author of Tomatoland
