The $200 hamburger

The other day I read a suggestion that the true cost of a hamburger, including subsidies and externalities, should be about $200.  The next day I had a hamburger for lunch and figured I was getting a real bargain.

Whatever the true cost of a hamberger,  paying  the full costs of our food out of our pockets would probably help deal with a lot of environmental and health issues.
