Hunger Money

Rising food prices are one of the main driving forces behind unrest in Egypt. At the same time, drought conditions in China promise to wreak havoc with global wheat supplies.

It seems like bad news doesn't it? But then again, if you're a commodities trader or an executive or stockholder with a food conglomerate, you're probably making a lot of money right now.

If there is any justice in the world, ADM, Goldman Sachs, and all the rest of the hunger profiteers (privateers?), must cease and desist this kind of harmful speculation.

Furthermore they should surrender their hunger profits to help fund sustainable local food programs around the world.
