China and food security

2010-03-19

James Miller, professor of Chinese religion, when discussing the tainted milk scandal explains that on the one hand we see the glitz and glamour of the Olympics, and China's scientific prowess in its space program; but on the other hand we see the inability of China's government to ensure safe and secure food for its people.
“The government went out of its way to ensure food security for the Olympic village, but has failed to do so for its ordinary citizens.”
Dr. Miller can speak to the problems faced by China's government and food security and regulatory frameworks, and challenges faced by the country’s private enterprise. He has taught a number of courses on Chinese culture including, Religion and Politics in Contemporary China, and Body Mind and Spirit in Chinese Culture.
