If the agreed goal is to help farmers in developing countries grow more of their own food, why do our leaders consistently promote policies that favor large-scale agriculture over small-scale food production? For the last three years, Timothy A. Wise has traveled the world to research this question for a forthcoming book. He will present key findings, from Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zambia, India, and Mexico.
