With food riots taking place all over the world and food prices continuing to rise, more people are asking, ‘in a world with so many resources, why is our most basic need so hard to meet?’

In “Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System” author,Raj Patel, says he has the answer. Patel, who used to work for the World Bank, the WTO, and the United Nations, has become a harsh critic of the way those organizations set policies that he says lead to increasing hunger and food insecurity around the world.
