In the November/December issue of Foreign Affairs, development economist Paul Collier takes aim at the â€œpolitics of hunger.â€ In his thoughtful article he urges politicians to take steps to lower food prices. To do so, he argues, could be unpleasant, however, since governments must end their â€œbias against big commercial farms and genetically modified crops and doing away with damaging subsidies.â€ The real enemy, he insists, is â€œpopulism,â€ a brand of politics he believes â€œwill block the policies needed to address the food crisis.â€
