The Food Crisis: Blame Developed Countries?

As the food crisis unfolded last year, Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva spoke at a UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) meeting and blamed developed economies for creating the conditions that led to the sharp rise in prices. He also rejected charges that biofuels had resulted in constraints on land use for food production.

For another view of the crisis, check out this clip of an interview last year of Dr Raj Patel, activist and author of the book Stuffed and Starved. Patel’s personal blog appears to be dormant, but the Stuffed and Starved blog is active.
