In answering a question on the global food price crisis Bush singled out India as the "problem": Bush on global food price crisis: "when you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food".
George W. Bush "Just as an interesting thought for you, there are 350 million people in India who are classified as middle class. That is bigger than America. Their middle class is larger than our entire population. And when you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food. And so demand is high, and that causes the price to go up."
