The Seal of Poverty

Why more people go hungry today than twenty years ago

There have been many great advances in global development policy. Infant mortality rates have fallen considerably as school enrolment continues to rise along with an increase in life expectancy. But in spite of all of this, 25,000 people die every day of starvation or its consequences. In its 2000 millennium declaration, the UN General Assembly promised that number would be halved by 2015, but this optimistic goal seems destined to remain beyond reach.

What are the underlying reasons for this? Drawing on a wealth of knowledge and research, Asit Datta analyses the situation in depth, examining the causes that will doom the plan to failure and offering some well-informed reflections on how this ongoing global catastrophe might be resolved.
