NO JUSTICE, JUST PEAS: WHY WAL-MART WILL NOT END D.C.’S FOOD DESERTS

Abstract

Without a significant policy shift away from corporate subsidies and towards local capital development, local entrepreneurs may need to abandon traditional for-profit business models in favor of alternative non-profit models that build upon existing community assets. Legislation meant to solve the problem of food deserts should prioritize community-based enterprise because of the capacity to localize capital, create living-wage jobs, and build accountability to community.
