Nobel Winner Predicts Rise of Veganism

Nobel Prize winning economist, and Stanford and Harvard professor, Alvin Roth predicts that veganism will be the dominant paradigm in the very near future, if not within this year.

In a recent interview on Peaceful Dumpling, Roth said, "There is a change in the notion of animal cruelty. There will be localized reaction to that change--so if New York state becomes vegan, Texas might ban forms of factory farming."

The article goes on to highlight Roth's observations about vegan skeptics, cognitive dissonance, how he envisions the growth of veganism unfolding and the steps to make it happen successfully, plus his favorite vegan restaurant in the Bay area.
