Hunger in a fertile land

Hunger in a fertile land

Ceres 14(2): 32-35

Hunger in Bangladesh results not only from lack of supply but also from lack of effective demand. Food is distributed according to purchasing power, not according to need. Purchasing power in turn reflects the distribution of wealth - above all, the distribution of land. Inequitable patterns of land ownership result in underutilized resources.
