Which of the following viewpoints would not be supported by the authors of "The Scarcity Fallacy"?

Poor people often cannot access food aid or develop their food production capabilities.


The problem of world hunger is not a problem of resources, it is a problem of distribution.


Production of food has grown faster than the population, such that food is more plentiful now than at any other time in history.


We should send more food aid to countries with close ties to the US, in an effort to foster democracy in these regions.

Never read it, but I found this synopsis:

"The Scarcity Fallacy" by Stephen J. Scanlan, J. Craig Jenkins, and Lindsey Peterson discusses the main causes and issues concerning world hunger. Although popular perceptions of world hunger point to food scarcity being the cause of the problem, the authors argue that the less obvious issue of "food security" poses a much greater problem. The World Bank describes food security as "the inability to acquire the food necessary to sustain an active and healthy life." According to the article, the primary cause of hunger is poverty. Other causes include gender and ethnic inequality. About sixty percent of the world's hungry people consist of women. Ethnic discrimination in places such as Eritrea, Sri Lanka, Rwanda, Indonesia, and the Sudan can prevent certain people (minorities) from producing or earning money to purchase food.

International food aid was created to assist in feeding the hungry around the world. However, this seemingly beneficial solution is actually quite ineffective and misdirected. Corruption and problems in delivery prevents food aid from helping those who need it most and benefit US shipping companies and agri-business more than those people who the program is supposed to help.

I think the WRONG answer is (D).

Hope this helps
