Just exactly what can you buy for a buck? Food prices seem to be skyrocketing and it’s harder to get a good deal out there. Jonathan Blaustein examines the value of a dollar and exactly what you can buy with one buck. His pictures stack up to each other to see the value of your food purchase. All the pictures are natural void of any manipulation as the food industry is notorious guilty of.

Its value is determined by the price of oil, its transnational transport contributes to Global Warming, its ingredients entice America into obesity, and its production processes animals into floss and mush.-Jonathan Blaustein
