    A better more informative read than fast food nation, which is a smear, would be Golden Arches East, This book examines the mcdonalds bussiness model and it's expansion in and to Asia. It is very interesting, does not take sides but examines the concepts of transnationalism, and Globalization (what Yabs seems to object to). While it is a scholarly work, it is entertaining to read, and short, even Yabs could read it :D

    GOLDEN ARCHES EAST
    McDonald's in East Asia.
    Edited by James L. Watson.
    256 pp. Stanford, Calif.:
    Stanford University Press. Cloth, $45. Paper, $16.95.

    What it points out in part is thsat McDonalds brings only part of the West to Asia with Mcdonalds, the process of assimilation occurs when asian culture and convention forces McDonalds to change it's way of doing bussiness in Asia. In addition McDonalds introduces agricultural improvements to the countries it visits by investing in farming (potoatos) and beef raising to local economies.

    I am not a Mcdonalds fan or supporter, but never the less the book is worth reading.

    well with the current rice crisis, growing potatoes in a country where they don't eat much may be part of the problem??

    RE; food crisis, The real issue is not planting potatos (which actually represents biodiversity), but the conversion of land to biofuel production. The biofuel industry has been wrongly subsidized by governments world wide taking valuble land out of crop production.
    The rice "shortage" is largely manufactured here in the Philippines, the problem will come when Thailand and other countries stop exporting rice and cereal grains abroad, already happening.

    yes biofuel is the problem
    actually this will make global warming worse as more trees will be cut down to make room for the crops
    biofuels
    what a load of b*llocks
    actually the root cause of the problem is world over population
    this is even more of a problem here in the Phils:OVERPOPULATION

    Potatos? Biofuels?, Overpopulation? hell what's that got to do with McDonalds? You just like to disagree with everyone. All i asked is if you might read a book, but then why read when talking is easier.
