Famine is about freedom, not just food – quote 2

Economic freedom for individuals and the protection of property rights is the reason that famines do not occur in democracies today, as Amartya Sen documented in his book Development as Freedom. Hunger isn’t just about food – it’s about freedom.

Famine is about freedom, not just food – quote 1
