World Hunger: Myths and Realities

Program #COLJ002. Recorded in Boulder, CO on November 21, 1991.

The emaciated images of the hungry in Somalia, Ethiopia and the Sudan are shockingly all too familiar. But hunger is not just limited to Africa and other parts of the Third World. It exists and is on the rise in the United States as well. Paradoxically, or so it seems, global food production is at an all time high. Why is there scarcity in the midst of plenty? Development and food analyst Joseph Collins links the solutions to hunger with the need to create and sustain genuine economic and political democracy.
