What was the Green Revolution? What have been its lasting problems, and how do they reflect “negative externalities” and “Karl Polanyi’s Paradox” (as defined in GPCC)? By contrast, what is the “clean farming revolution”?

What are the economics and politics of hunger? Specifically, what does it mean that “people command food through entitlements” and what are the causes of failures of entitlement?
