  • "The large food companies' failure to internalize food production costs creats negative externalities and economic deficiencies in the food market. Government regulation to-date is insufficient to stop the externalization of costs. Poor eating habits of the general public promote such market failures and are controlled by misinformation, advertisements, and unhealthy foods. Until…citizens and lawyers use tort law to force the food producers to internalize the food production costs, the market will continue to fail." (p. 163)
