  • Thank you, Roland. The response to my Food Crisis articles has been very gratifying. It’s been published in more than a dozen countries in English, and almost as many more in Spanish!

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed that Socialist Voice has now published it as a pamphlet, available as a PDF download from, and also as an inexpensive printed edition.

  • The ‘Food Crisis” is a very informative and well written article. I have forwarded around the world. It is good to point out that there is no shortage of food — we always need a good answer to the followers of Malthus — and the object failure of capitalism to satisfy humanity’s basic needs for survivial.
