    Abstract

    "High food prices are not only causing a humanitarian crisis, but also putting at risk the development potential of millions of people.

Soaring food and fuel prices are creating a "perfect storm" for the world's most vulnerable. The consequence is that the bottom billion could become the bottom 2 billion overnight, as those living on US$1 a day see their purchasing power cut in half." from Text
