Beating the Rice Crisis

Workers rush to repack imported US rice in one of the huge NFA warehouses in Cabanatuan City. NFA rice sells for P18.25/kilo in certain priority areas and P25.00/kilo in the market, while regular rice is between P31-37/kilo. "Unfair!" cried the private rice retailers who claimed losing money, and that what is really happening is a "Price Crisis" and not a rice crisis. There is food but the poor have no money to buy it.
