Meeting world food needs: food policy and population growth among the poorest of the poor



Meeting world food needs: food policy and population growth among the poorest of the poor



Journal Northeastern Agricultural Economics Council 11(2): 101-106



The current and future world food problem is centered in low income nations and among low income segments of populations world wide. The thesis of this paper is that increases in income and food production in the poorer nations and among low income segments of rural populations elsewhere are likely to aggrevate that problem in the first instance. It is after some minimum level of economic well being has been attained that further increases in income will result in reduced family size.
