Hunger and Agroecology

program date: 
Mon, 09/24/2012

Bill Resnick talks with Tristan Quinn-Thibodeau, Outreach and Partnerships Coordinator for the Global Movements Program of Why Hunger?. They discuss how the problem of hunger is affected by long-standing issues of commodity speculation, demand for biofuels, so-called free trade, and dismantling of state supports, as well as more recent factors like land sales and increasing production for export. They note that we have enough food to feed the world—the problem is not production but distribution.

Let them eat cake! Mitt Romney writes off half of America.

"There are 47 percent of the people who ... are dependent upon the government, who believe that they are victims," said Mitt Romney to a room full of his fellow aristocrats. "... And so my job is not to worry about those people."

Marie Antionette said it better: "Let them eat cake."
