When the game becomes unfair, the only way to win is changing the rules of the game. In this way, market forces can wipe out undernourishment by themselves!

A renovation of the market institutions can ameliorate the distribution of agrifood resources at global level. The WATS (Waste Trading System) is the tool that will achieve this goal! Similarly to the Kyoto Protocol Emission Trading System, WATS sets a cap to the global amount of agrifood waste and contemporaly it creates a market of waste allowances. With these simple rules, WATS manages to reduce undernourishment preserving the market freedom. WATS will facilitate the redistribution of financial and economic resources to stimulate the agrifood supply and demand. At the same time, the wholesalers will be encouraged to change trade patterns, making the agrifood market fairer and fairer! My ambition is to demonstrate the huge impact that WATS can have, showing policy makers how they could obtain a great result with a minimal effort!
