Almost 1 billion people are starving: Why is world hunger spiraling out of control?


On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Dr. Joseph Glauber, Senior Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute and former Chief Economist at the US Department of Agriculture. He discusses the causes of the spiraling world hunger crisis, including energy price increases, wars and accessibility, the impact of the war in Ukraine on food prices, the US’ structural problems with food security and poverty, India’s ban on rice exports, why general inflation is in turn causing food prices to spike and much more.
