The author reflects on the economic crisis that threatens economies, particularly those in poor countries such as Africa. He articulated that some of the worlds organizations' efforts for food aid to poor countries are short term assistance and what those countries need is a long term aid. The author suggested that the Doha Development Round, whose objective is to lower tradebarriers around the world and permits free trade among countries in varying prosperity, would resolve the problem.
