- 16 Downloads
One of the enduring impressions of the Japanese Occupation of the Philippines, particularly in Manila and other cities, is the shortage of food. Rice and other basic foodstuffs became increasingly difficult to find, and when food was available it was often at prices that ordinary people could not afford. This chapter examines various production and distribution plans evolved during the Japanese occupation, and discusses the reasons for their lack of success.
