Economics of Food

Question 1

Cherry picking refers to the act of making reference to data that confirm or point towards a particular position while ignoring another set of data that contradicts that position. The available data on world crop yields suggests that high food prices arise from low crop yields across the globe. The fact that bad weather patterns in some parts of the world resulted in the variation of food prices between the 2005-2008 periods does not portray the real global picture. Food prices do not entirely depend on the weather patterns and the crop yields in different parts of the world (P. 88).
