FP: The Food Issue

Foreign Policy has a great new issue on food and I highly recommend reading their views on what's causing unrest in the Middle East and what the future will be for many countries on the cusp of serious food supply issues. The global food supply has hit a wall and as a result hungry citizens are rioting, ousting their dictators, and setting in motion a series of events that will impact foreign policy forever. There are talks of oil and water wars, but now we see the beginnings of food wars. Think Egypt and Tunisia were all about democracy? Think again- a major factor that contributed to these revolutions were the rising prices of food. Everyone should be reading FP's food issue which you can find here.
