Food production on the earth has increased steadily and exponentially at 2-3% per year for decades, but that has had little effect on the number who are hungry. More and more countries are dependent on imports, primarily from North America, for their basic food needs, and their ability to pay for those imports is threatened by the increasingly problematic international trade/aid/debt/monetary system. The United States General Accounting Office has found a total of 71 active computer models for agricultural policy analysis in the US, 15 at the global level, 22 national, 12 single-commodity, and 8 on the management of food reserves. Food can become either a trade-balancing instrument or a foreign policy instrument, leading to policies that might counteract policies designed to solve Messes 1 and 2. Though the world is producing more and more food, there is a significant fraction of the human population that never receives any entitlement to that food and therefore is chronically debilitated by hunger.
