Abstract

The three papers and workshop discussion draw attention to the various ways that finance and food come together through new financial actors and tools, and in new political contexts, or financialization in the food system. The term financialization began to emerge in the late 1990s and it is increasingly applied to a growing range of areas of daily life and the economy (Krippner, 2011; Martin, 2002). Food studies, and these three papers in particular, help to define the contours and impacts of financialization in the food and agriculture sector.
