Cristóbal Mejía served as a GII summer intern during May-August 2008. He gathered materials and prepared a background report on the causes and effects of the sharp rise in world food prices that occurred in the first half of the year. This material provided the basis for a presentation by David Orden titled “Higher Food Prices and What the Mean to the Economy” at a Mercatus Center Capitol Hill Course, Rayburn House Office Building, June 19, 2008. Cris further developed this work as his final project paper and received his Master’s in Public Administration/Public Affairs from Virginia Tech’s Alexandria program in December 2008. In March 2009 Cris presented his paper at the Yale University Bouchet Conference on Diversity in Graduate Education.
