Abstract

Two thirds of the people of the world are permanently hungry. Among the hungriest are the people of Latin America. Their poverty is shown by the income figures. In 1953, when Fidel Castro first took up arms against Batista, average annual per capita income for Mississippi, the poorest state in the United States, was $829. For most of the Latin American countries, it was under $300, or less than 40 percent of Mississippi's.
