"Desde mi punto de vista –y esto puede ser algo profético y paradójico a la vez– Estados Unidos está mucho peor que América Latina. Porque Estados Unidos tiene una solución, pero en mi opinión, es una mala solución, tanto para ellos como para el mundo en general. En cambio, en América Latina no hay soluciones, sólo problemas; pero por más doloroso que sea, es mejor tener problemas que tener una mala solución para el futuro de la historia."

Mais problemas para a África?

With food prices escalating, the G8 has to deliver on its plan for Africa | Jay Rayner | Comment is free | The Observer: "The plan as it stands this weekend is for a programme designed to lift 50 million people out of poverty across six African nations: Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso. Detail is predictably hazy and hardly innovative. It involves individual nations investing in the agricultural base from a macro level – large-scale irrigation schemes – through to the micro level of training for individual farmers and access to more robust seed stock, all of it intended to increase output and hence income.

That 50 million figure makes it sound like an ambitious initiative but, compared to the scale of the global problem, it can't help but feel meagre. There are 170 million children alone who are suffering from chronic malnutrition, which leads to physical and intellectual stunting. Add the adults also at risk and we head towards a figure of one billion people without enough to eat."
