Timothy A. Wise on the Coming Food Crisis, and more from Triple Crisis

The Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) and the Triple Crisis Blog continue their analysis of the economic situation in Europe and the international food crisis.

Last week, Timothy A. Wise sat down with the Real News Network to discuss the implications of the drought ravaging the Midwest.

Drawing on his co-authored report with Sophia Murphy, Resolving the Food Crisis: Assessing Global Policy Reforms Since 2007. Wise points out that the international community has failed to address any of the important drivers of the food crisis climate change, biofuels expansion, financial speculation, the lack of publicly managed food reserves, and strong reinvestment in developing country food production.
