Voiceless Animal Law Lecture: Meatonomics – Thursday, 11 May 2017

When:  6:30pm – 8pm  (doors open at 6pm), Thursday 11 May 2017

Where:  Australian National University, Weston Theatre, JG Crawford Building, 132 Lennox Crossing, Acton

Could a tax on meat help reduce the consumption of animals, ease environmental pressures and improve people’s health? 

Few Australians are aware of the economic forces behind the production of meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.

Animal food producers rely on government subsidies, artificially-low prices, and influence over legislation and regulation to provide cheap meat, eggs and dairy products.

As a result, Australians incur massive hidden costs associated with every animal product that are not visible at the checkout.

These additional costs relate to animal suffering, damage to the environment and human health.

The 2017 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will examine the real costs of animal agriculture, and ask the question – could a tax on meat be the answer?

To answer this question and challenge the current system is lawyer and author of Meatonomics, David Robinson Simon.

For this exclusive Australian Lecture Series, David Robinson Simon will discuss how US meat and dairy producers have influenced markets and consumer behaviour, and how Australian producers have already begun adopting US tactics.

The 2017 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series will visit seven Australian capital cities this May. Seating is limited. Buy your tickets today!
