On Beyond Organic: Is Organic Elitist?

One of the biggest complaints about organic food is price.

In fact, according to conservative pundits like the Hoover Institute's Henry I. Miller, the organic movement is not only elitist, but technophobic and possibly even racist.

This Wednesday, join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network as we take a look at some of the true costs of organic foods, and some innovative solutions to the unique economic barriers illuminated by the organic foods movement.
