Eleni Gabre-Madhin is a charismatic Ethiopian economist wants to end hunger in her famine-plagued country. But rather than relying on foreign aid, she has a truly radical plan. She has designed the nation's first commodities exchange, which she hopes will revolutionize an ancient market system whose inefficiencies have been partly responsible for the country's persistent food shortages.
