Summary
Lack of understanding about famine and its complexity have made it one of the most debated issues in economic analysis. Understanding the causes and effects of famines may provide substantial solutions for addressing various political and social problems. It must be viewed not only as result of food supply shortage, but an aftermath of normal market and governmental failure, as well. Other factors may contribute to the occurrence of famine, including weak social infrastructure, closed political regime and incompetent government.
