what do you think about?

A Palestinian friends showed me a cartoon. 4 men are in a class L to R from Arabia, America, Europe and Africa   Interestingly there is no-one from Asia, or maybe the teacher is Asian!   
In Arabic you read from right to left so the cartoon reads: 'What is your opinion about shortage of food around the world?'
the African asks: 'What is food?
The European:  'what is shortage?

Yes, they are stereotypes. But they make a point and suggest global perspectives in the same problem  It all depends on where you are coming from.....

There are lots of TED talk about food shortage. Here's one:
