The food deficit per capita in Bolivia dropped from 190 kcalories/capita/day in 2010 to 104 kcalories/capita/day in 2016. Bolivia has largely accomplished this feat by lifting the minimum wage and reducing the rural poverty level. Still, the country’s food insecurity remains high compared to neighboring countries in South America. Dependent on unreliable commodity (oil) prices, Bolivia must evaluate whether its redistributive policy of “vivir bien” is still the way to go. For now, solid economic growth offers Bolivia a chance to add to its success.
