But the number is rapidly declining. It took the first two decades of the 20th century for Sweden to be declared free from chronic malnutrition. In only 30 years the proportion of hungry in the world has been reduced by half, and it is expected to decline further, to 12 percent by 2010. There have never been so many of us on earth, and we have never had such a good supply of food. During the 1990s, the ranks of the hungry diminished by an average of 6 million every year, at the same time as the world’s population grew by about 800 million.
Instead, the old land is being farmed more efficiently. The yield per acre of arable land has virtually doubled. Wheat, maize, and rice prices have fallen by more than 60 percent. Since the beginning of the 1980s alone, food prices have halved and production from a given area of land has risen by 25 percent—a process that has been swifter in poor countries than in affluent ones. ’’ Higher-yield, more-resistant crops have been developed, at the same time as sowing, irrigation, manuring, and harvesting methods have improved dramatically.
That means that a person regarded as ‘‘loaded’’ when living in a poor country like Nepal is considered as poor as a church mouse when living in the affluent United States. These relative figures, consequently, cannot be compared internationally. Those who are rated poor in the United States are not always living in circumstances that we would term poverty. 21 Second, the allegation of increased inequality is just wrong. The notion that global inequality has increased is largely based on figures from the UN Development Program, in particular its Human Development Report from 1999.
