Abstract
Our key finding is that the existing economic structures through which food products are bought and sold extract about $800 million from the region's economy each year. All this money, currently earned by Southeast Minnesota residents, is spent in ways that weaken the capacity of the region to build wealth for its citizens. This is a significant loss, an amount equivalent to ten percent of all household income earned by the region's 303,000 residents.
