We have to be careful when we make food consumption and production predictions on Per Capita bases tha on the long run creates food crisis especially for the poor. PROPOSAL- “Organizing and bridging demographic structure, economics of nutrition related to food-science and reevaluation of consumption and production predictions by using developed Per Adult Human Unit Method (PAHU) versus Per Capita (PC) on developing and developed countries including USA and EU.” Responding to Global Food Needs or Policy-Economic Crisis Relation? What Follows? Last fifty-year world population is in a “demographic transition”. On the other hand USA and EU’s families and household dynamics are also rapidly changing. These demographic changes have implications for many facets of economic life: food and other goods consumption and services, work force structure, retirement etc. Findings indicate the consistency problems exist not only among EU states and its institutions also at international level that do not use the same definitions. This gives too much space for arbitrary decisions that will damage the comparability of the demographic statistical data. State of art of the proposal is implementing developed Per Adult Human Unit (PAHU) method (Copy-right, 1989) and new approaches to revaluation demographic structure, consumer potential of EU, food consumption and its safety (and efficacy) as needed. PAHU involves systematic attempts to look into longer- terms past and future of demographic trends, consumer and food consumption potentials on PAHU and error inherent Per Capita (PC) basis (19.4 percentage unit error) and their impact on society with a view of identifying the areas of scientific harmonization of quantitative and qualitative development including family and household evaluations, likely to influence the future demographic change of USA and EU, its expansion policies and economic strategies. As growth in USA and EU27 economy continues to outpace in the rest of the world, proposal’s potential outcomes in the footrace determination of real consumer potential, between demand and supply with particular emphasis on food, aiming, harmonizing of quantitative and qualitative development including family and household evaluations, likely to influence the future demographic change their expansion policies and economic strategies. PAHU is not offered for major reform, but in an effort to streamline the methodology further to turn this key issue into an opportunity and modernize the economic policy and aims to give a chance to see where the adjustments are needed and ensure the policy is fit for challenges in reduction errors
