| Before c.10,000 BC || {{w|Hunting and gathering}} era || This period occupies about 90% of human history. People fare arguably better during this time than during the post agricultural revolution era, as the reduced population and nomadism are able to cope better with food scarcity. Also, hunter-gatherers enjoy a varied diet, while early farmers would obtain most of their food from one or a few starchy crops.<ref name="Was the Agricultural Revolution a Massive Fraud?">{{cite web |title=Was the Agricultural Revolution a Massive Fraud? |url=https://www.realclearscience.com/blog/2015/03/the_agricultural_revolution_historys_biggest_fraud.html |website=realclearscience.com |accessdate=31 December 2019}}</ref><ref name="An Urban's Rural View">{{cite web |title=An Urban's Rural View |url=https://www.dtnpf.com/agriculture/web/ag/blogs/an-urbans-rural-view/blog-post/2019/09/10/historys-biggest-fraud |website=dtnpf.com |accessdate=31 December 2019}}</ref>
 +
|-
 +
| c.10,000 BC onwards || Post {{w|First Agricultural Revolution}} era || An increase in food production is followed by a population increase, making hunting and gathering an impossible return for most of the world due to the size of human density. This time represents a change in diet and nutrition, which becomes less rich due to the proliferation of {{w|monoculture}}. Famines abound as a consequence of several risks carried by agriculture, like droughts and floods.<ref name="Was the Agricultural Revolution a Massive Fraud?"/><ref name="An Urban's Rural View"/>
 +
|-
 +
| c.18th–19th centuries onwards || Liberal capitalist era || A spectacular growth of wealth is experienced in this era. Capitalism creates abundance unmatched in human history. Famine becomes rare in those countries adopting the free market.
 +
|-
 +
| Mid 20th century onwards || Raise of {{w|overnutrition}} || Modern food production system, focused on increasing output, successfully meets, and even exceeds, the nutritional needs of consumers in developed countries. Not only it satisfies energy, protein and fat requirements, but it reduces real prices of food. One of the consequences of this is the rise of overnutrition among the population for the first time in human history.<ref name="Over-nutrition?">{{cite web |title=Over-nutrition? |url=http://oecdobserver.org/news/archivestory.php/aid/3215/Over-nutrition_.html |website=oecdobserver.org |accessdate=31 December 2019}}</ref>

| 1999 || {{w|Undernutrition}} || || Notable comment || American humanitarian {{w|Fred Cuny}} writes: "The distribution of food within a country is a political issue. Governments in most countries give priority to urban areas, since that is where the most influential and powerful families and enterprises are usually located. The government often neglects subsistence farmers and rural areas in general. The more remote and underdeveloped the area the less likely the government will be to effectively meet its needs. Many agrarian policies, especially the pricing of agricultural {{w|commodities}}, discriminate against rural areas. Governments often keep prices of basic grains at such artificially low levels that subsistence producers cannot accumulate enough capital to make investments to improve their production. Thus, they are effectively prevented from getting out of their precarious situation."<ref>{{w|Fred Cuny}}–Famine, Conflict, and Response: a Basic Guide; Kumarian Press, 1999.</ref> ||

Big picture

Time period Development summary More details
Before c.10,000 BC Hunting and gathering era This period occupies about 90% of human history. People fare arguably better during this time than during the post agricultural revolution era, as the reduced population and nomadism are able to cope better with food scarcity. Also, hunter-gatherers enjoy a varied diet, while early farmers would obtain most of their food from one or a few starchy crops.[1][2]
c.10,000 BC onwards Post First Agricultural Revolution era An increase in food production is followed by a population increase, making hunting and gathering an impossible return for most of the world due to the size of human density. This time represents a change in diet and nutrition, which becomes less rich due to the proliferation of monoculture. Famines abound as a consequence of several risks carried by agriculture, like droughts and floods.[1][2]
c.18th–19th centuries onwards Liberal capitalist era A spectacular growth of wealth is experienced in this era. Capitalism creates abundance unmatched in human history. Famine becomes rare in those countries adopting the free market.
Mid 20th century onwards Raise of overnutrition Modern food production system, focused on increasing output, successfully meets, and even exceeds, the nutritional needs of consumers in developed countries. Not only it satisfies energy, protein and fat requirements, but it reduces real prices of food. One of the consequences of this is the rise of overnutrition among the population for the first time in human history.[3]

Governments in most countries give priority to urban areas, since that is where the most influential and powerful families and enterprises are usually located. The government often neglects subsistence farmers and rural areas in general. The more remote and underdeveloped the area the less likely the government will be to effectively meet its needs. Many agrarian policies, especially the pricing of agricultural commodities, discriminate against rural areas. Governments often keep prices of basic grains at such artificially low levels that subsistence producers cannot accumulate enough capital to make investments to improve their production. Thus, they are effectively prevented from getting out of their precarious situation."[129]
