Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week, we look at the politics of hunger. Why, given that enough food is produced to feed 9 billion people sufficiently, are so many people going hungry? The big lie of the agribusiness industry is that they are interested in tackling hunger. The market system itself reveals this. Markets are only interested in meeting the needs of those who have money. We begin with an interview of Luke Anderson about the international meeting in Sacramento about food trade policies such as pushing genetic engineering and privatisation of water on the nations of the south.
