| | My ethical position for the world hunger is the moral relativism because it offers no moral guidance. It merely tells us that any particular action would be approved by one group, but denounced by another.The world hunger is a very broad and controversial issue but let's start with some questions:What should those of us in affluent nations do to help impoverished countries and individuals, especially those facing episodic or endemic hunger? It just slightly changes it. We should now ask: “Are we obliged to insure that they have adequate food entitlements?” That requires us to ask several derivative questions: do we have obligations to encourage (or coerce) their governments to enhance their entitlements? Are we obligated to establish ongoing trade relations with these countries to enhance their citizens’ entitlements?Do we have obligations to send food or to help distribute food when the country cannot do so on its own?
One central feature of “Budgeting Entitlements: The Politics of Food Stamps” is its particular focus on “symbolic stances.” These stances are extreme and very partisan. Symbolic stances are often times purely ideological and not aimed at a specific topic or legislation. King speculates, based on which party is in control of the various branches of government, as well as the funding structure of the food stamp program at

Individuals that support this are ecologists and believe that a nation that doesn’t maintain a proper food-to-population ration shouldn’t be helped. Pojman cites Garrett Hardin with three of his metaphors. From the way that Pojman explains his rational of Hardin’s ideas from “Lifeboat” are contradictory. As he puts “Lifeboat” obscures the point that we have/do profit from third world economic conditions. Next with Liberalism, we have the duty to help.
Food assistance programs were put in place by the government, the school system, public and private non profit organizations, daycares and food pantries (Blau, Abramovitz, 2004, 2007). The most common food program is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), also called food stamps (http://www.fns.usda.gov/pd/snapmain.htm). Food stamps made its first appearance in 1939, but only survived until the time of war and employment was increased and eliminated this helpful program (Blau, Abramovitz, 2004, 2007). This program was created to helps low-income people and families purchase nutritious food to prevent hunger and promote a healthy eating style (http://www.fns.usda.gov/FSP/). SNAP is funded by the federal government and offered to persons living 130% of the poverty line.
Discuss how food availability and distribution, technological developments and societal factors impact on food equity. Up to more than half population of the world experienced food inequity due to living in isolated areas, lack of facilities, and environmental factors. While the other half of the population live in large settlements, often on food producing islands and is fuelled by the lure of food exports and imports. There is currently enough food being produced in the world to feed everyone, but due to unjust distribution, the rate of chronically hungry people is increasing. Food equity means equal access to nutritious foods and food security exists to all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to enough safe and nutritious foods for a healthy lifestyle.
Hoover’s economic philosophy was restrictive monetary policy and free market. Restrictive monetary policy is limiting currency to prevent inflation. In other words, not putting money into circulation or giving out loans to protect the value of the dollar. If not many people have money the value of the dollar goes up. Care for yourself and don’t depend on the government was his belief.
Welfare: Prevents non-rich from accessing needed goods, but incentivizes suppliers to send more b. Liberty: Diminished purchasing power diminishes reach of freedom of buyers, but allowing “gouging” respects freedom of retails to sell at the price the market dictates c. Virtue: “Gougers” seem to be taking unfair advantage of customers, which seems to be a mark of less than admirable personality traits – greediness, selfishness, a lack of compassion, etc. 2.

They fail to control their appetites and impulses, but in fact it is not about lack of self-control or willpower. And she is right, because society has morphed into having this standard of how people are supposed to look, yet society does not provide themselves with the solution. What is the solution? Our right to healthy food needs to be returned to us, and we need to demand a higher standard of healthy eating and options for our healthy lifestyles. That is the American people’s responsibility.
