COVER: How To Stop The Food Riots. (Atlantic and Latin America editions). Senior Editor Rana Foroohar opens this special report on the world food crisis with a primer on the incredibly political nature of food. As food prices spiral out of control, the worry is that millions more of the world's poorest will also be lost to its ravages. Over the past few months, there have been food-related riots in 22 countries. Fuel prices have risen farther and faster than agricultural commodities over the past few years, and the $1 trillion subprime mess dwarfs the food crisis in terms of economic impact. But you don't eat oil or stocks. Those who would try to predict where the current situation is headed would do well to consider food crises of the past. This cover package illustrates that agriculture, one of the world's most distorted industries, is in desperate need of an overhaul.

It's the Stupid Politics. Hong Kong Bureau Chief George Wehrfritz and European Economics Editor Stefan Theil report there are two big factors contributing to today's global food crisis. One is the grossly distorted system of global trade in agriculture. The other factor is underinvestment in agriculture in the developing world, which leaders rationalize on the mistaken assumption that imported food would forever remain cheap. "They simply did not make [agricultural investments] a priority," says Lennart Bage, president of the U.N.-affiliated International Fund for Agricultural Development. "They've been lulled into a false sense of complacency."
