Recognizing that millions of people in the less-developed countries continue to go hungry while there is more than enough food in the world to feed them, the authors of The World Food Problem tackle the question of why - and what can be done about it. Entirely new to the third edition are chapters on the history of famine, the basic economics of supply and demand, and economics and policy analysis. Throughout, data have been brought up-to-date and recent policy debates explored; the discussion is enriched with frequent examples of current problems and policies. This highly readable and comprehensive text provides an accessible analysis of the state of world food supply and demand, as well as an assessment of prospects for the future.
