Economic Turmoil Pushes More Across Poverty Line

In today’s Baltimore Examiner, CRS President Ken Hackett writes about the current economic crisis and it’s affect on the world’s poor.

“As we commemorate Thursday World Food Day 2008, it is clear that we are losing ground in our fight to reduce the number of hungry people across the globe. U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates are that this global food crisis has increased the number of people who already suffer from chronic hunger, from 850 million to 982 million. The World Bank says 100 million people have been pushed back into poverty.”
