  • Why do so many people worldwide suffer hunger and poverty when there is enough food and other resources globally to prevent it This book shows how famine and food insecurity are an essential part of modern capitalism Although trade, debt relief and development initiatives are important, they do not alter the structure of the global economy and the poverty that is createdWhy do so many people worldwide suffer hunger and poverty when there is enough food and other resources globally to prevent it This book shows how famine and food insecurity are an essential part of modern capitalism Although trade, debt relief and development initiatives are important, they do not alter the structure of the global economy and the poverty that is created by processes like privatisation, trade liberalisation and market reform.Despite the rhetoric of the World Bank and the G8, high levels of poverty actually sustain western wealth and power But there is some hope for change Using case studies from Egypt and North Africa, Nigeria, Sudan and elsewhere in sub Saharan Africa, Ray Bush illustrates that there is resistance to neoliberal policies, and that struggles over land, mining and resources can shape real alternatives to existing globalisation.

    1. The book is written from a DT PC theorist's perspective. I personally think Bush s diagnosis n solutions are the best for the middle east. His analyses of Egypt and Ghana were chosen well to support his thesis. I recommend reading this book.
