Abstract

The globalization led by financial capital has already resulted in ‘grain financialization’ (or grain dollarization), which is the most important factor giving rise to the grave situation in global food security, as well as turmoil in developing countries that rely heavily on grain imports.* This article analyzes food security issues in the twenty-first century in the context of international financial globalization. In particular, it pays attention to developing countries’ discontents and crises due to grain financialization, as well as China’s strategies in dealing with the dual risks existing in grain and financial markets.
