At Nautilus, Jonathan Katz applies a systems-level perspective to the problem of food aid. Every year, the United States spends billions (although much less than it used to) sending shipments of food to countries where people are going hungry.

Why? Katz argues that it's because food aid evolved more for the benefit of American companies than the long-term benefit of feeding people.

Raw Story: Cawthorn, who became the target… READ THE REST
