    Author’s reply » Indeed. Agricultural pork is one of the most expensive parts of our subsidy system and one of the most morally indefensible since raising food prices is so regressive (the rich spend a tiny fraction of their wealth on food while the poor spend a substantial percent of their budget on artificially-inflated milk, sugar, etc.).
