The foundations of real prosperity

By

Many years ago, people said that the Philippine peso was weak and had little value. I remember that many Pinoys converted their money to US dollars because the peso lost value so fast; it seemed then to be the prudent thing to do.

How strong is the Philippine economy?

By

A: While it is true that the first quarter performance of the Philippine economy was lower than what was originally forecasted, the economy did not actually do poorly. The 5.7 percent growth is far from average and our economy still ended up as the third-best performing economy in Asia behind China and Malaysia. The main reason for the lower than expected economic performance can largely be attributed to the low output of agriculture particularly coconut, fishing and livestock as a result of Typhoon “Haiyan.” Delays of reconstruction also contributed to the slowing of the growth. Still, the 5.7 percent is still a pretty good showing, way above our 4 percent generational average, and this is despite bottlenecks and disasters. I suppose people would consider 5.7 percent low because of our 6-7 percent performance over a couple of quarters—an issue of perspective.
