Aid as obstacle : twenty questions about our foreign aid and the hungry by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )

23 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reasons why U.S. foreign aid fails to alleviate hunger and poverty are discussed and a solution to the problem is presented. The United States now channels more foreign aid than ever to the world's poor and hungry through the Agency for International Development, food aid programs, the World Bank, and other multilateral aid agencies, which report that U.S. development assistance programs are meeting the basic needs of the poor people in the developing countries with "appropriate technology" and by "raising small farm productivity." However, research shows that the cause of hunger and rural poverty is not scarcity of agricultural resources or lack of modern technology, but rather the increasing concentration of control over food-producing resources in the hands of a few people. U.S. foreign assistance fails because it is based on the fundamental fallacy that aid can reach the powerless even though channeled through the powerful. The bulk of U.S. aid flows not to the countries with the greatest poverty but to those with some of the world's most repressive regimes. If U.S. programs are to be effective, they must bring the poor into development and halt all economic and military support for elitist governments. (Rm)
World hunger : ten myths by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2015 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From best-selling authors Frances Moore Lappé and Joseph Collins comes the 21st century's definitive book on world hunger. Driven by the question, 'Why hunger despite an abundance of food?' Lappé and Collins refute the myths that prevent us from addressing the root causes of hunger across the globe. World Hunger: Ten Myths draws on extensive new research to offer fresh, often startling, insights about tough questions--from climate change and population growth to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the role of U.S. foreign aid, and more."--

L'Industrie de la faim : par-delà le mythe de la pénurie by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in French and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une entreprise de réfutation point par point, sous forme de questions-réponses, de l'argument selon lequel la faim dans le monde résulte d'une croissance incontrôlée de la population et d'une production agricole insuffisante. Les auteurs expliquent comment le système actuel, basé uniquement sur des critères de rentabilité, aboutit à la suralimentation des riches et à la sous-alimentation des pauvres. Comme alternative, ils suggèrent entre autres l'application du principe de l'auto-suffisance de façon à ce que les besoins des populations locales passent avant les impératifs du commerce et du profit. Un des livres les plus importants des dernières années sur le sujet
