520    The objective of publishing this book is to let the 
       general public have a better understanding of the food 
       security situation in China and better comprehension of 
       the merit of allocating land through market mechanism. In 
       addition, it makes the public aware of the inefficiencies 
       of current government regulated land system. As a populous
       country in the world, China emphasizes too much importance
       of food to ensure people's sufficient consumption. There 
       is a national policy to protect farm land, farm land 
       protection refers to 18 hundred million mu of farmland 
       which is specifically designated for food production only.
       Unirule defined the national food security as the 
       capability to solve food shortages, and calculated the gap
       between food supply and demand. Two approaches can be used
       to solve the above food gap. Food security problems will 
       not happen under situations of free trade and factors 
       substitution in market economy, substantial storage and 
       foreign exchange income. In modern China, food insecurity 
       or great famine only happened in planned economy. To link 
       tightly farm land size and grain yield and even food 
       security is baseless both in theory and practices. The 
       previous red line of 21 hundred million mu was already 
       broken through. The current red line of 18 hundred million
       mu will also be broken through, in view of the process of 
       industrialization and urbanization. In fact, farm land 
       protection should focus on protecting the employment right
       of peasant in land.
