Russian granary

­On this edition of On the Money: With food prices steadily increasing, there is little doubt the global food crisis will stay with us for a very long time. And Russia will have to plough through it. Can the current food crisis turn into a blessing for Russia that will force it to develop its full agricultural capacity? And will its fertile soil become a better investment for foreigners?

To talk about the impact of the looming global food crisis, Peter Lavelle is joined by:
David Steer, President and General Director at Kraft Foods
Chris Weafer, chief strategist at Uralsib
Victoria Sokolova, managing director of investment banking at Troika Dialog
Andrey Sizov, managing director at SovEcon
