Summary

The questions of population growth and food supply have long been of central concern to economists. The World Food Economy seeks to examine the lessons of the past for wealthy nations, where agricultural output has steadily risen for decades, as well as for developing nations where the advances of the ldquo;Green Revolutionrdquo; in the 1960s have introduced new problems in addition to solutions. This book assesses the challenge of satisfying food demand during the twenty-first century as consumers and producers in every part of the world ndash; rich and poor alike ndash; feel the effects of expanded global commodity trade, food aid, and national legislation in response to globalization. The difficulties of developing agriculture in the developing world are discussed in the context of food subsidies in Europe and the US.
