The NGOs and banking orgs continue to push developing countries into export crops rather than domestic food stocks. They're _supposed_ to buy their staples on the international market. It's more "efficient" that way. Till their export market tanks, or Australia has a crop failure or something and then the staples are unaffordable. Hey, it's the free market. Best of all possible worlds. If you're an investment banker.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
