World Hunger

According to Shaohua, Chen, and Ravallion beginning from 1992, it was approximated that almost a third of all hunger-stricken regions and countries were undergoing ethnic or community clashes or civil wars. The moment the population of a country is in internal or external conflict, they are unable to get involved with maintainable food production and other activities that boost the economy. This way, wars end in the destruction of property and foodstuffs. This article focuses on studies that have proven America’s stand-in lack of involvement with hunger in most underdeveloped states.
World hunger cannot be blamed on a single country or parameter. Nevertheless, Maddocks argues out that, world hunger is the result of several interrelated aspects of the world economy and politics of powerful countries. The United States to be specific is responsible for the occurrence of several of these facts that leads to the formation of a chain reaction that activates other aspects, creating a challenging situation for world leaders. Maddocks also states that the current food production rate is sufficient to eliminate food hunger. Lack of food accessibility is not the issue related to world hunger. Actually, the publication asserts that food supply made by corporations worldwide ca sustain the world population for quite some time, perhaps a before a permanent solution is established. In India, millions of tons of food spoil while in storage facilities while a huge chunk of its population starves. This publication points out a major aspect that is recognized by lucrative food production and processing companies in the United States. Such corporations do not consider the welfare or wasteful nature of their industries concerning the livelihoods of the underdeveloped countries. This is because they do not serve as a huge market for the companies.
