Phan, Rice & You

2008_05_phan.jpgReacting to the global rice shortage, Slanted Door mastermind Charles Phan gives a video interview with MarketWatch. While others have been bitching and moaning about the crisis and the subsequent rising costs, Phan—who serves 100 pounds of rice a day to 1,000 customers—takes a refreshing zen approach, saying that the whole frenzy should be a "wake up call" because it finally sheds light on problems around the world and that he might make the move to Texas popcorn rice, which is half the price of Jasmine.
