World Food Adequacy and Security

Part of the Trade Policy Research Centre book series


In the first edition this chapter had a different title — ‘Food Surpluses of the Industrial Countries and Food Needs of the Developing Regions’. While a great many things have changed since then, I find little reason to modify the major points made in that chapter. But since changes have occurred, it seemed best to completely recast it rather than revise and update.
