The Politics of Food Prices

The Wall Street Journal blog recently posted an interesting article about the politics of food in Egypt, looking at the price of available food to citizens. One of the possible questions of the Stewardship of the Planet theme asks how the politics of food have been used to push political objectives. Do you think that the prices of food in Egypt will have an impact on their political development in the coming months or years? Do you think that the state of food prices was an impetus in the recent revolution?

Check out the article and weigh in on the comments section.
