Open the Cages! – The New York Review of Books - May 12, 2016 Issue
Peter Singer reviews ‘The Humane Economy: How Innovators and Enlightened Consumers Are Transforming the Lives of Animals ’ by Wayne Pacelle, publisher William Morrow, April 19, 2016. “Yuval Harari, the author of a brilliant history of our species, has described the treatment of animals in industrial farms as ‘perhaps the worst crime in history.’ That makes intensive animal production the obvious focus of any examination of whether the marketplace can really achieve a humane transformation of our relations with animals, for if it fails there, it is failing to deal with the source of the greatest amount of suffering we inflict on animals.”
