Description

This report examines the potential impact, both at home and abroad, of distributing surplus food commodities at concessional prices to provide direct benefits to low-income consumers in the short run, and to promote economic development and raise real income levels in the long run. The problems of low-income consumers in the ghetto of New York or Los Angeles are the same as those of low income consumers in Bombay, India, or Seoul, Korea; only the degree of seriousness is different.
