How Not To Feed the Hungry: A Symposium

H

When the executive director of the UN World Food Programme, David Beasley, told reporters that his department could end world hunger if Tesla CEO Elon Musk would donate a mere 2% of his net worth to the cause. Musk took up this challenge, writing that “If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.”

We thought it a good moment to commission three of our writers to comment on the proposal and the broader idea of ending world hunger. These essays include:
