Food Shortages in Russia
Preview not available

Abstract

The maintenance of living standards, public health, even life itself are gravely threatened by the scarcity of food in Russia. These circumstances are more the product of the unaffordability of food than its absolute unavailability. Given the unlikelihood of sharp improvements in productivity, food shortages are likely to persist until at least the next harvest.
