Going Hungry in a World of Plenty

Listen:


Twenty-first century high technology has not abated hunger. Pesticides and industrialized processing deplete needed nutrients, often doing more harm than good. On this program, we take a look at the role multinational corporations play in perpetuating the cycle of hunger. We also hear how so-called free trade and food aid contributes to starvation.
