Nei podcast di questa settimana si parla di nuovo dei problemi legati all’aumento del prezzo del cibo.
Ne parla su NPR il podcast The Indicator in un episodio dal titolo “The Rising tides of Global Food Prices”.

Today, we talk to Asha Jaffar about how citizens in Nairobi are grappling with higher food prices. And we look at how other countries are responding to this global food supply shock.
NPR parla anche dell’aumento del prezzo di molti prodotti necessari per l’agricoltura nell’episodio “The price to grow food is soaring with inflation”:

Di questo argomento parla anche il blog dell’IMF, in un post dal titolo “Africa faces new shock as war raises food and fuel costs”.
