The article discusses the author's views about impending shortage of food in the world. One hundred million people may soon be short of food, with the spike in some commodity prices in part to blame, says the author. Those markets will correct in time to spare the worst hunger and to avoid the worst of the political meddling, avers the author. The disruption in basic foods has several causes, but prominent among them is the undermining of the U.S. dollar as a global currency, says the author.
