I’ve been a very delinquent blogger of late, and am likely to be so for the next couple of weeks. Quite unexpectedly, I’ve been asked to testify in front of the House Financial Services Committee in a couple of weeks time about the food crisis, and the World Bank’s role in it. Veterans of this blog will know that I’ve already said, in print, that the head of the World Bank makes me gag and, on Canadian telly, that the World Bank is full of shit. I’ll be reining in my potty mouth and putting together some pointed testimony over the next few days, so I’ll be not spending quite as much time here as I’d like. I blame the government. But check out the blog for the best articles from other writers, now that the food crisis has become something of a hot topic….
