Philippine Economy In Good Hands (Part 3)

              It would be a distortion of reality if this article stating that the Philippine economy is in good hands would focus only on the competent and honest government officials who have been assembled in the Cabinet of President Marcos Jr.  Over the last thirty years, we also have seen significant improvements in the motivations and performances of our leaders in business and civil society.  In fact, even if our prayers are heard that President Marcos Jr. will lead us as a good President, as he requested the public the night the Senate ratified his election, his government will fall short of achieving a progressive, just and humane society if the private sector do not have equally competent, honest and experienced leaders.  Having been part of the private sector for all my professional life, I can say that we have also gone a long way in building institutions and practices in our business enterprises, academic institutions, and non-governmental organizations that strongly complement a good government in eradicating poverty, protecting the environment and inculcating the right values and virtues among the citizens.

       The historical trends, empirical findings, and policy updates are discussed in detail in the essays compiled in this book. The most convincing argument that supports the thesis of the book, i.e. that population growth is a poitive factor in attaining sustainable human development, is found in the foreword to the book, which is adopted from an article written by Mr. Roberto de Ocampo, former Finance Secretary of the Philippines and multi-awarded finance official in Asia. Thanks to the continuing growth of the Philippines population, Filipinos are in more than 100 countries all over the world, contributing much-needed foreign echange and purchasing power to the Philippine economy and fostering the human and spiritual development of the most diverse of peoples and cultures on this planet.
