ABSTRACT

Rather than seeing shelter as a basic human right, we have become inured to the homeless living on city streets with their meagre possessions in shopping trolleys, a life described recently in the UK as "nasty, brutish and wet." Our obsession with markets that are anything but free sees hundreds of millions go hungry in a world that produces two kilograms of food per person per day, while food-producing land in Africa is being converted to produce roses for air-freighting to European flower markets because that makes more money. At the same time, poor countries are being urged to accept genetically modified food crops, allegedly to feed the hungry.
