520    "Modern-day Malthusians warn that Malthus will ultimately 
       be right: the world will be less and less able to feed 
       itself. They are anxious to apply their pessimism to 
       developing countriespopulation keeps expanding, no new 
       land is being created, crop yields have increased 
       considerably and may have peaked, and the environment may 
       not tolerate the pressure of more intensive agriculture. 
       While these arguments seem persuasive, the evidence to the
       contrary is compelling: prices of agricultural commodities
       in real terms are at their lowest level in history, and 
       crop output continues to rise faster than population." 
       "The fact is that the world food situation has improved 
       dramatically for most of the world's consumers. Not all 
       people in the world today have adequate diets and there is
       no doubting the desperate circumstances of some peoples, 
       but diets for most of the world's consumers have improved 
       dramatically and per capita calorie consumption in 
       developing economies has increased by some 27 per cent 
       since the 1960s. It should continue to improve, and food 
       will be cheaper than it is today." "Sub-Saharan Africa 
       remains the primary exception to these general 
       developments with stagnant or even declining per capita 
       consumption levels. There are serious problems of hunger 
       and malnutrition. But here the problems extend well beyond
       agriculture." --Book Jacket.
