"in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, ...the food-desert narrative ...is fundamentally incorrect."
The US does not have a food culture. Asians, Middle Easterners and French incorporate food as part of their way of life, worth spending money and time. For many Americans, a meal is just something to get out of the way, like taking a dump or piss. For those who don't have enough money for food to survive, choices are ugly.
Even the soup lines in France serve decent food, unthinkable in America, yet America is sooo rich and food ingredients are cheap and good quality.

Don't blame the Dollar store.

Okay, but this doesn't exactly solve the problem of food availability and affordability.
