From principled populism to food policy

  1. 1. FROM PRINCIPLED POPULISM TO FOOD POLICY JIM ROUMASSET (U. HAWAII AND EPDP, PHILIPPINES)
  2. 2. PRINCIPLED POPULISM What should donors do in a populist world? Andrew Natsios made sense out of compassionate conservatism (Jeffersonian democracy thru rural dev) Principled Populism starts with Principled Realism (Bolton). Economic Cooperation/BATNA. Promote general welfare (infra of cooperation, drain the swamp)
  3. 3. FOOD POLICY Instruments: Productivity enhancing R&D/Infra shifts out supply => Structural transformation through IFPRI linkages. Beware of multiple objectives. Sustainability: Economy/nature + Dynamics Food security: Welfare ⇧ => Wage/(food price) ⇧ . Not extraneous targets (self-sufficiency) Swamp creatures: grain parastatals and the quest for homogeneity Grain fundamentalism vs. nutrition
  4. 4. MAHALO! James A. Roumasset University of Hawaii jimr@hawaii.edu
