Great Decisions webcast: Global Food
Wednesday, October 28, 2009
6:00-8:00pm, Frick Fine Arts Auditorium, University of Pittsburgh
As food supplies drop and prices rise how will the world react?
Global prices for food staples have risen dramatically, resulting in a number of serious protests and unrest around the world. What factors are driving prices up, and can they be tamed? What will the political fallout be for governments that fail to act, and what role can global institutions play?
Great Decisions, part of the Passport to Global Awareness course, is webcast by the World Affairs Council. For more information on Great Decisions 2009 - Discussion Groups, please visit the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh website.
