Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is food production really the problem in Africa?  I thought availability and distribution were real threats to life and well-being.  The question is, can the current number of people who live in slums survive if the income of the globally-oriented elite who provide them with, essentially, the scraps they need to live on, suffer significant income declines due to a big drop in trade, investment, migration, and other transnational activities made possible by "Pax Americana?"
