Prosperity by Atamolos Prosperity by Atamolos
It's not a supply problem, it's a distribution problem.

You forget about Israel and South Korea and Japan and China and South Africa and Jordan and Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates and the fact that about 80% of those "neglected" countries are run by dictators, warlords, and terrorists.

Naturally.  The issues are always more complicated than cartoons make them appear.  But the facts remain that 1) there is enough food produced in the world to feed 7 billion people, and 2) there is no profit in distributing this ample food equally.  The lack of a profit motive is what is strangling Africa and the rest of the Third World.

Along with the local powers withholding all food donated or homegrown, as well as the inability of the actual governments to implement an organized farming system. Though the capitalists who are profiting from abusing these lands are merely skimming off the top of an already broken system. If african states were to try to get rid of the parasitic capitalists the place to start fixing things would be internally, in their governments and economies. Though once they could stand on their own two feet the capitalists would merely make new arrangements for the labor and material through trade. Like in china.

That said some people don't want to live under a centralized power. And a stable democracy today pretty much implies a free market which would bring capitalism to africa anyways. 

I'm getting off track, all i'm trying to say is that captialism isn't exactly the root of this problem and removing captialism from africa completely would most likely cause more problems with political instability and power vacuums than it would solve. It's a noble notion to say "stop abusing the weak" though like you said, it's always more complicated.

Well, only 2% of Australia's population lives in the interior, at least from what statistics I've heard.
