The markets play a crucial role in generating resources to end hunger. But the free market is not absolute, nor can we applaud the letter interventionism that rewards speculative wealth and implacable with nearly one million people chronically hungry in the world. Just as no one is kept out of the education of their children to “not interfere” in their growth in “freedom”, the civil society can not yield to the delusion that the state’s participation is synonymous with totalitarianism, and that only the free market encourages innovation and research. The social welfare states like Sweden and Finland are at the forefront of technological development rates in the world, above the European mixed economies and countries that have a “free market.” The neoliberal paradigm washes off the fight against hunger and poverty because part of the same principle and purpose: to generate profits at all costs. The countries that follow this model try to poverty outside their borders as treat the most vulnerable people in their own country, according to OECD data.
If the rich world is not involved in ending hunger, could materialize threats alarmed engulfing their society from the media, even if state failure and hunger stricken are “far” from its borders (increasingly less .) The future of the rich world and the world’s impoverished are closely related, although there are economists who repeat that there must have poor to rich. If society does not act ethical, then I would do it for their own interest because his life is at stake. In rich countries, the car factories and construction companies cut jobs due to the lack of income or to use the crisis and save costs. Many immigrants to a country he left without work, remittances, which had played a key role in the economic growth of countries such as Mexico and Morocco – down to a minimum.

The report unfair Hunger Action Against Hunger shows that cost EUR 3,000 million to treat 19 million children worldwide who suffer from severe malnutrition. “At a time of global food crisis as we are living is paradoxical to think that an epidemic that kills five million children a year could be eradicated globally by investing half of what it has cost the T4 (the new airport terminal Madrid), “says Olivier Longue, director general of Action Against Hunger.

After the failure of economic model that Margaret Thatcher had become a religion, global civil society is faced with the chance to continue their stampede back blindly or governments for their role in monitoring processes and distributing wealth. Universities, research institutes, companies and civil society organizations complement to the States at the time of study problems, to provide alternative proposals and to innovate to meet the challenges of humanity. States create frameworks for action and cooperate in the financing. But many governments still need to accept the commitments that had been marked for halving poverty by 2015. What does make less than a dollar for every 100 that are rich countries? For poor countries can be the start of new stage if they stand as responsible stakeholders, because not everything can be solved from help coming from abroad. Unlike people, who are in themselves an end, wealth is a means for better living and not the object of fetish that the ideologues of “free market” have worshiped for decades.
