Reading Political Responses to Food, Fuel and Financial Crises: The return of the moral economy?
Abstract:Research into the impact of the food, fuel and financial crises uncovered a palpable sense of uncertainty, awareness of global connectedness and a sense that governments had failed to act to protect people. Naomi Hossain draws on these findings to suggest that a reading of the political responses to the crisis – the mass food riots of 2008 – could inform a project of rethinking the goals of development, or global social justice.
