What he said!

Spot the made-up world hunger numbers

Yes, about that...

Also, with the perpetually starving Sahel region not even making the list of countries where people are starving? And Ethiopia does? Because we're still in 1984 and Ethiopia is never going to escape the stereotype no matter what effective systems they put in place.

*glares at FAO and general UN number people and waits for response to William Easterly - who is (which makes this far more fun) actually quite likely to get a response*

Follow up: FAO responds in full here - love it when UN agencies are willing to engage fully with their critics. This should happen more. This is how we move forward.
