Higher food prices are good for you? The Economist wants your vote
I didn’t know anyone at The Economist ever disclosed the name of anyone who worked there but Jeff Koo, who seems to in some capacity, sent me a link to the magazine’s debate forum. The proposition for the week is: “There is an upside for humanity in the rise of food prices.” The magazine invites your comments, along with those of experts. Here’s your chance. Tell them you think higher food prices are just what the world needs right now. You don’t think so? I certainly don’t. Better let them know right away.
