Abstract

All brouhaha on rice Tariffication renders sharp lessons for us Filipinos to rid ourselves of such pitiful state of social consciousness by ridiculing without right attitude—or aptitude on the subject. Sequentially, the incompetence of Media as a reliable source of critical information is inexcusable.

Rice importation is the convenient option for Government to equal the demand for food, rather than developing the capacity of the small farmer or contending weather impossibilities. The dilemma in trade is that this causes price volatility; insofar it is not a reliable source because trade is utterly political. Trade is away capacity development of the smallhold farmers because trade denies self-sufficiency and curtails country food security.
