rice you use.
So yesterdays figure was a ton or two, and total to date is
about 680 tons. 2 to 3 tons/day average.

One thing to consider is that all the countries "above 80 cents" have small
populations (Norway = 4.6M, US = 300M+). Second, I don't believe USAID and
most non-UN charities are included in the above figures.
And lastly, most good books on economics and international business consider
the topic controversial. On the one hand, when you have a severe food
shortage, people die (a tragic thing). On the other hand, the food shipments
hurt local farmers, who sometimes abandon their land and move to the cities
(a bad thing in terms of long-term food supply). Then you also have to
consider what happens when the shipments fall into the hands of corrupt
governments, or local warlords.
