Food has become a hot asset. Markets view food scarcity as the 'opportunity of a lifetime' and are pouring money into agricultural commodities. The impact is catastrophic as, as speculators push up the price of food and force millions into poverty. November's New Internationalist tackles the under-reported scandal of food speculation.
With over 30 years of publishing under its belt, and more than 45,000 subscribers worldwide, the New Internationalist is renowned for its radical, campaigning stance on a range of world issues, from the cynical marketing of babymilk in the Majority World to human rights in Burma. www.newint.org
