The economy will adjust itself without us to have to worry about it. Â 
Suppose that people will eat meat less and less, animal industry closes their animal farms one by one, farm animals decrease by number gradually, more soybeans and vegetables will be available to hungry peole all over the world, since animals eat much more than people in quantity to become meat, more soil and water will be available for people to live with. We will have a more healthy earth with less pollution (created by animal farms).
That's part of what the book "Diet for a new America" talks about.

There are a number of excellent documentarys on the evolution of farming and farming equipmentthat realte the how and why it was fundamentally necessary to improve machine farming in order to supply basic demands levels of the world ever increasing populations without wich society would have had rapid collapse and contractions and the remaining industry would have been burial of the starved billions. Hoards of ill educated youth will agree with the most mindless ideas Here small animal life prevents necessary sustenance improvemments due to the protected species act in several different areas and regions preventing needed work that would improve conditions. Animals are not senior to humans, sorry, they are in the ranks of creation but no one will convince me to agree with radical politically motivated assininities. 

It is interesting to speculate what happens if most people were vegetarian today. Whjat would cattle, sheep, chicken , turkey, and other animal ranchers do? would they continue to feed animals that they cannot market? I don't think so. Then what would they do with all the animals? Set them free? Cut the fences of their ranches and abandon them to retire on a pension somewhere? What would happen to all the Farm Equipment Mfgrs? With no one to seel their product to they would fire the workers and shut their doors. What about all the other Source Suppliers that sold them all the parts and steel and rubber, plastic and tires and all else they needed, thye could all go out of business also and fire all their employee's who then could carry signs protesting animal rights lol. 

What about all the supermarkets that carried all the meat , chicken, lamb, salmon (oh BTW the Indians would still eat meat and salmon, and chickens etc lol) what would they do when they couldn't supply it anymore because there weren't any more dairys or animal husbandry businesses and now there isn't any need for Bar-B-Que sauces or other sauces, spices, flavorings. And what about the Feed Companies that supply feed to the Ranchers and hay and Chicken feed they go out of business also. And what about the truckimng companies that had steady regular contracts to transport and deliver the evil products to market? They go out of business also and fire all theiur employee's who go on un employment and and then welfare like all the other happy crowds who npow are very satisfied that animalsare senior to humans but not senior to potheads lol. 

And what about the huge loss of revenue in fee's and taxes to city, county, state and federal governments because all the businesses that used to support in some significant way the traditional diets of sane people went to hell in a basket? They also must contract and furlo many people and staff who also can go on unemployment and later welfare with the many millions of other evil people who worked to feed others belly. 

and remember the activists are also against using land for raising soybeans which are used to make soy based meat substitutes which it is posited that people would eat when they went vegetarian. So when theere is no meat, fowl, lamb, chicken, fowl, fish , eggs, or insects like snails (a life form) chocolate covered crickets or many other living animal lifeforms that are traditionally eaten 

it will a living exampl,e of that classic chinese proverb "May you live in interesting times! LOl! 

Here today the deadline is activating about no more plastic bags in markets to place what you buy in because they are made from petroleum (They hate Oil Corp.'s) and they are not biodegradable in landfills so we must bring our own or use the Paper Shopping bags made from living TREE's LOL! hey started with tree's and are working to include everything else. 

I do think that the Meat , Fish, Fowl, Products constitute the major part of income for Super Markets. Lettuce is very cheap comparatively and more importantly much less profitable as regards margin wise and I seriously doubt thety would continue the business with out the Protein supplying animal products. So 100,000's of thousands more will be fired when the doors close and go on unemployment and later welfare like all the rest. BTW our local Health Food Co-op has a splendid Meat, Fowl , and Fish Section all "Organic" for those who worry about evil contaminations. Wonder why that is lol? 

Just a few items, there are many more that could be listed by examination.

Glad to see your message. Social changes take time. I have great hopes in 

the younger generation who have much better access to information is likely 

to be affected when they become aware of the issues involved in factory 

farming, slaughter and further processing. From what I have seen, animal 

rights interest ultimately leads those interested becoming ethical 

vegetarians in due course. Who can predict how the future is going to 

evolve. We will have to see how changes take place in the future.
