The politics of food

24th November 2016

Who influences what we eat? Are we responsible for the food we put in our mouths? What power do children exert over their parents’ spending habits? RegNet Research Fellow Phil Baker discusses these questions in a TED talk given at the TEDx event held in Canberra in September this year. Phil’s TED talk has also been featured in The Conversation as part of the Health Beyond the Horizon series.

Watch Phil’s TEDx talk on the TEDx Canberra website.

About TEDx Canberra

In the spirit of ideas worth spread­ing, TED has cre­ated a pro­gram called TEDx­. TEDx­ is a pro­gram of local, self-organised events that bring peo­ple together to share a TED-like expe­ri­ence. Our event is called TEDx­Can­berra, where x = inde­pen­dently orga­nised TED event. At TEDx­Can­berra, TEDTalks video and live speak­ers will com­bine to spark deep dis­cus­sion and con­nec­tion in a small group.
