Perhaps the enriched countries do not have to choose between " bread and gasolina" , but " hundreds of million poor men surely yes have hacerlo" , Paul explains Kennedy, director of the Institute of Studies on Security the International in the University of Yale. In a world in search of the magical prescription to maintain power the waste present, the alternative of the biocombustibles has caused that the law of the supply and the demand is present like never in the most basic diet. Who less they have, as always, they are those that lose before the scaling of the prices of the maize, the wheat or the cane of sugar, the products preferred for this form of obtaining of energy. Everything a challenge to the objective of the UN to eradicate the hunger, since it alters the necessary balance for a right distribution of the wealth of the planet. The increase will be general. We were before " the aim of the food barata" , according to The Economist, a cycle in which the countries will more and more evaluate their raw materials by these misalignments produced in market.

The attractiveness of the more popular power cultures causes that the agriculturists leave other harvests, reason why the pressure of the demand increases to envelope they. Thus it has happened to the soybean in the USA. Far from to lower the price of itself, its price has gone off by the galloping growth of the Asian powers, where it is an essential food. The imbalance will be more and more acute in many other cultures due to the inefficiency of a form of obtaining of energy that requires great worked earth surfaces. In order to satisfy the demand in Germany it would be necessary to dedicate all the territory to power cultures. Perhaps the investment in these cultures is beneficial initially for the agriculturists, and that it reverts in the society, but it will not be the same in all the countries.
