During severe distress of famine, entitlement has collapsed for the most vulnerable classes of society, pushing large numbers of persons into a state of starvation, leaving them destitute and migrating or dying (bottom panel). However, not all individuals starve. Some segments of society lose little or no economic ground, or benefit considerably from the plight of others by acquiring property and other assets at low prices, obtain labor at reduced wages or lend money at high interest rates. Still other segments, particularly those trading in famine relief goods and services, stand to gain large profits throughout the famine and recovery periods (depicted by the right skew).
