Poverty of Distribution - Social Studies, Math 9

Susan George, in her book “How the Other Half Dies- the Real Reasons for World Hunger”, argues that world hunger is not a matter of having too little food to feed everyone, but is rather the consequence of unequal distribution of the world’s food. She suggests that the business of agriculture, called agribusiness, is focused on maximizing profit, which in many cases is a barrier to sharing food more equally.
