E. Wayne Nafziger
New York City book launch on the sources and prevention of war and state violence, organized by UNU/WIDER and International Peace Academy.


I conduct research on entrepreneurship, class and caste, the debt crisis, comparative economic growth, hunger and displacement, the economics of political violence, India's information technology, stabilization and liberalization in developing countries, the sources of war and humanitarian emergencies and how to prevent them, and income distribution ( Inequality in Africa was cited by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1990). My focus is on low- and middle-income economies of Africa and Asia, and high-income Japan. My 19 books (6 coauthored and coedited) have been published by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, and the Hoover Institution. My articles appear in the American Economic Review, Economic Development & Cultural Change, Journal of Conflict Resolution, World Development, Journal of Development Studies, Defence and Peace Economics, Economics of Peace and Security Journal, Journal of Modern African Studies, and the Indian Economic Journal. I teach development, international, and comparative economics. I have had leaves of absences to the University of Cambridge, International University of Japan, East-West Center, Carter Center (Hewlett Fellow), Nigerian Institute for Social & Economic Research, & as Fulbright Professor to India & Senior Research Fellow, UNU/World Institute for Development Economics Research, Helsinki. I have supervised 22 completed Ph.D. dissertations (3 co-major chair).

The world produces enough food to feed everyone if people had access, i.e., sufficient land to grow or income to purchase food (D. Byrd, citing UN FAO, earthsky.org/human-world/how-many-people-in-the-world-today-are-hungry; and Nafziger text, 2012, on poverty, hunger, and malnutrition, pp. 4-6, 161-258, esp. 221-231.)
