Sound like a good idea? Perhaps, but what do you suppose would happen if we had this kind of food insurance?
One thing we should expect is that there would be a general increase in food consumption, with a particular increase in more-expensive foods. As of today, who can afford a Kobe porterhouse steak with white truffles and saffron, La Bonnotte potatoes and Almas Iranian caviar on the side, a Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Blanc de Blanc to wash it down with, and a Chocopologie by Knipschildt and Kopi Luwak coffee for dessert? But if you’re paying the same whether you get this or a hamburger with fries and a soft drink, why not give the steak dinner a try?
