Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think a significant part of the creation of the Church of GDP was driven by the conscious policy, at least here in the US, to sever as much of the population from the land as possible.  Land became corporate, food became an industrial product, and the food on your table became just another buy-in of the consumerist creed to drive GDP.
