"Food scarcity: the timebomb setting nation against nation" The Guardian

 "Food is the new oil and land is the new gold,"  (Lester Brown)
"Brown has been backed by an Oxfam report released last week. It calculated that the land sold or leased to richer countries and speculators in the last decade could have grown enough food to feed a billion people – almost exactly the number of malnourished people in the world today. Nearly 60% of global land deals in the last decade have been to grow crops that can be used for biofuels, says Oxfam."
