  9. Rising Food Prices in Thailand

    Rising Food Prices in Thailand

    After reading about food shortages worldwide, especially rice, over the last few months and wondering when the street-level crunch would be felt – it came. Last week after work I returned to my residential street in eastern Bangkok (Ramkamhang Road), went to my favorite side-of-the-road food shop and ordered one...
