A theory is appropriate as long as it fits into the fact; when a theory doesn't fit in the fact, it's wise to walk with the fact.

Food inflation and developing Asia

Asian Development Bank (ADB) publishes a report 'Global Food Price Inflation and Developing Asia' with Bangladesh as one of the reference country. It provides the trends of rising food prices, country-specific reasons for higher food prices and finally a few numbers on the impact of food prices on GDP growth, and poverty. Finally, it gives policies (short term as well as long term) for enhancing food security.

Hope it is useful for you.
