Hunger, Risk and Financial Markets: A Study of The Food Crisis of 2008

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Crises in markets and catastrophes in the physical world have until recently been mostly separate phenomena. However, both the frequency and magnitude of financial turmoil have risen sharply in the past 20 years, even as social and development policymakers have increasingly turned to market solutions, resulting in the ensnarement of more and more non-market participants in the consequences. This paper draws on elements of systems theory, network theory and ecological risk theory in analyzing one such crisis to show how the joining of markets, political systems and the physical world can exacerbate the very risks that development policy seeks to mitigate. The paper is organized in four sections, beginning with a brief overview of the food crisis of 2007/2008. The second section develops an analytical and attributive framework of risk transfer which is applied in the third section to trace the movement of risk across social, spatial and temporal dimensions and into the commodity markets. The fourth section traces the path of risk back out of the market into society across both macrostructural systems and unseen networks, and includes preliminary conclusions.
