CITAÇÃO _ preços alimentares

Um artigo interessante do Guardian sobre a subida dos preços alimentares. Aqui está um excerto: "Of course, the food crisis is not all the fault of some dunderheads in Washington; bad governments in countries such as Burma - once one of Asia's biggest rice exporters - and those surging energy prices are also to blame. And in the short term only a moratorium on biofuel use might help lower prices. But to prevent this drama being revived regularly the west will need to reverse its previous policy and encourage poor countries (especially in Africa) to help their farmers get seeds, fertilisers, more credit and better roads. This is starting to happen, but more in rhetoric than deed."
