Real progress re-quires sweeping and radicalreorm, which should includegenuine agrarian reorm that willstimulate the ailing agriculturesector, and renewed eorts towardsnational industrialization thatcould provide decent and stable jobs or more people.In the end, the worseningeconomic disparity among dierentbrackets o society does not implygrowth or development. Rather,it only uels urther discontentamong the people who have longsuered in an economic setupthat avors the ew.

UP AND THE CRISISOF DEMOCRACYOn genuine democracy asthe advancement o thelivelihood and welare othe peopleFrancis Ronald PerezMarch 15, 1990
WHEN THE PHILIPPINEeconomy achieved record-breaking perormance last year,the Aquino government wasquick to take credit, announcingwith much hubris that nally,the Filipino people have a reasonto celebrate.The year 2012 let signicantachievements or the Philippineeconomy— record-high stockexchange rates, the peso gainingthe highest value against theUS dollar in our years, and anunprecedented 7.1 percent growtho the gross domestic product(GDP) or the total amount o goodsand services the country produces.Financial experts have alsoexpressed their optimism or2013, predicting an intensiedinfux o capital and even possiblepromotion o the Philippines to thecoveted investment grade status.Yet, outside the marbledhalls o the Stock Exchange andelegant interiors o corporateboard rooms, growth remainselusive or most Filipinos whostruggle to put ood on the tableevery day. Indeed, instances o“economic prosperity” manuactureat least two realities: a country onthe road to progress or one boundto urther destitution.For instance, there is littlereason to rejoice on the recentGDP growth, especially whenit was largely acilitated bygovernment spending andpublic construction—a recur-ring trend whenever nationalelections loom—and not increasedconsumer consumption. Clearly,the economic boom was causedby the government’s inusiono huge sums o money in theeconomy, and not becauseFilipinos were able to spend more.Economic prosperity is nottrickling down the greaterpopulation. While large corpo-rations listed at the PhilippineStock Exchange reported an 18-percent rise in net income toP377.12 rom P319.97 romJanuary 2012 to September 2012,around 102 small establish-ments closed primarily or itsinability to compete, according toindependent research institutionIBON Foundation.No matter how the governmentinsists, no illusion o progresscould conceal the grim truth thatpoverty continues to enslavemajority o Filipinos. Basedon the latest Social WeatherStations sel-rated povertysurvey, the number o amiliesconsidering their selves poorswelled to 54 percent or 10.9million households, rom the 47percent or 9.5 million last August.The country’s employmentsituation also worsened, as thenumber o jobless Filipinossurged to 6.8 percent in October2012 rom 6.4 percent in October2011, according to the NationalStatistics Oce. IBON estimateseven a higher unemployment rateat 10.5 percent or 4.42 millionFilipinos. With little improvement,the number o underemployedFilipinos has remained staggeringlyhigh at 7.16 million in October 2012.Not even the prospects oa credit rating upgrade holdsignicant meaning, especiallywhen decades o reliance tooreign investments have nottranslated to long-lastingbenets such as creation ostable and high-paying jobs, anddevelopment o basic industriesneeded to accelerate and sustaineconomic growth.As the peso’s value continues torise, the vulnerability o the Philippineeconomy is urther exposed or itsdependence on external and volatilesources. An increase in peso’s valueinevitably aects the income oOverseas Filipino Workers and their
