Crisis Paper Number 38. World Food Conference.
Atlantic Information Centre for Teachers, London (England).
This paper is thirty-eighth in a series which expands the analysis of the crisis under discussion to provide a multinational view by quoting comment from a selection of newspapers of several countries. The issue presented here is the problem of world food shortages, which is briefly introduced in relation to the attemps at the Rome Conference to deal with this problem. Journal and newspaper articles from nine countries -- United States, France, West Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, China, Pakistan, India, Malawi -- follow, ranging in date from October 23 to November 18, 1974. A two page commentary underlines major problems brought out in the articles and summarizes the political and economic implications which are analyzed. A list of five basic policy questions implicit in the world food crisis concludes the issue. (Author/KSM)
