Bisnis, JAKARTA – Whether acknowledged or not, amidst the turbulent global conditions, food security is an alarming issue. Unlike issues of central bank interest rates and the threat of recession, food insecurity emerges in poorer countries.

Nonetheless, the threat of food insecurity is not only limited to poorer countries. Whenever global food production is lacking, bigger countries will no longer be able to survive without food supplies, no matter how much wealth they possess.

In his book, The Geography of Bliss: One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World, Eric Weiner illustrated the ironic and tragic situation where money is all around us, yet food sources are absent.

“When the last tree is cut, when the last river is emptied, when the last fish is caught, Only then will Man realize that he can not eat money,” wrote Weiner, which became a widely popular phrase.
