Banking on hunger - how speculators moved into food

Inside this issue:

Food has become a hot asset. Markets view food scarcity as the 'investment opportunity of a lifetime', and are pouring money into agricultural commodities. The impact is catastrophic, as speculators push up the price of food and force millions into poverty. New Internationalist investigates how investments in staple foods like maize and wheat have caused hunger. We find out about the financiers who are buying up African savannah, highlight efforts to buffer the Mahority World poor from market shocks and call for an urgent clampdown on speculation.
