Economic growth over the past six years hardly made a dent in poverty incidence in the Philippines, as the percentage of Filipinos living below the poverty line remained practically the same between 2006 and 2012, official statistics showed.

The poverty incidence stood at 27.9 percent in the first semester of 2012—“practically unchanged” from the same period in 2009 (28.6 percent) and in 2006 (28.8 percent), the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) reported Tuesday.

Unlike in previous poverty reports, the NSCB did not indicate the number of families and people who fell below the poverty line.

Although the poverty incidence was practically unchanged in the past six years, the number of poor people was expected to be higher in 2012 because of the country’s growing population.

Norio Usui, senior country economist for the Asian Development Bank, said the government must solve the problem of jobless growth if it hoped to reduce poverty.

“I am not surprised at all. The benefits of strong economic growth have not spilled over to the people because they still cannot find a job,” he told Agence France-Presse in a telephone interview.

He said the Philippines’ economic model depended on consumption, strong remittances from its large overseas workforce and the business process outsourcing industry, which employs college graduates.

However, the country, with its weak industrial base, has stood out in the region, he  added.

“Why do you need a strong industrial base? To give jobs not only to the highly educated college graduates, but also to high school graduates,” Usui said.

The National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) said it hoped to see improved results given new investments in infrastructure, agriculture and manufacturing.

“Although this first-semester result on poverty incidence is not the dramatic result we wanted, we remain hopeful that, with the timely measures we are now implementing, the next rounds of poverty statistics will give much better results,” Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Arsenio M. Balisacan said at a briefing.

Create quality jobs

Balisacan said increased infrastructure and business investments since the latter part of 2012 should help create quality jobs that would enable the poor to improve their lives.

The country, which has a population of about 97 million, posted 6.6 percent economic growth last year, and this year obtained its first-ever investment-grade rating from Fitch Ratings.

However, the January 2013 jobless rate stood at 7.1 percent, with a further 20.9 percent underemployed, or working fewer than 40 hours a week.

About 41.8 percent of the underemployed are in the farming sector.

Joel Rocamora, head of the National Anti-Poverty Commission, said about three out of every five Filipinos were highly dependent on agriculture. “As such, increasing incomes in agriculture will make a big dent in addressing the poverty problem,” he said.

Falling commodity prices

Balisacan said underemployment in rural areas, security problems in provinces facing insurgencies and warlords, and the falling price of a number of commodities such as sugar were mainly to blame.

“If the problem of visible underemployment in agriculture is addressed, then incomes of farmers would increase, poverty incidence would decrease, and we would not be compromising food security,” Balisacan said in a statement.

He expressed hopes that the next round of data would reflect the government’s massive investment in human development and poverty reduction.

‘Extreme poverty’

NSCB Secretary General Jose Ramon Albert said at the briefing that during the first semester of 2012, a Filipino family of five needed P5,458 to meet basic food needs every month. Families earning that amount were considered to be living in “extreme poverty.”

The proportion of extreme poverty among families was largely unchanged from 10.8 percent in 2006, 10.0 percent in 2009 and 10.0 percent in 2012.

A family of five family would need P7,821 to meet both food and non-food needs (such as clothing, housing, transportation, health, education) every month. Family earning that much is considered to be living in “poverty.”

The NSCB said P79.7 billion was needed to eradicate poverty for the first semester of last year. By contrast, the government 2012 budget for its conditional cash transfer program was P39.4 billion.

Poorest provinces

Neda said that while there was a slight difference in poverty incidence between the first semester of 2009 and 2012, the results were not uniform across regions and provinces.

The NSCB identified the five poorest provinces as Lanao del Sur (68.9 percent poverty incidence), Apayao (59.8 percent), Eastern Samar (59.4 percent), Maguindanao (57.8 percent) and Zamboanga del Norte (50.3 percent).

By region, the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (46.9 percent), Region 12 (37.5 percent), Region 8 (37.2), Region 9 (36.9 percent), and Region 10 (35.6 percent) had the highest family poverty incidence.

“This suggests that the strong economic growth in 2010 and 2012 were not enough to extricate a lot of people from the poverty trap,” Dr. Benjamin Diokno of the University of the Philippines School of Economics said via e-mail.—With a report from AFP

    Siguro hindi din nakakatulong ang mga dole outs na binibigay ng gobyerno/DSWD sa mga taong bayan kung tawagin nila sa sarili nila ay mahirap pero hindi naman gumagawa ng paraan para makaahon sa kanilang sitwasyon.
    Siguro madami sa atin ang umaasa, namamalimos sa gobyerno at kung sino na lang dala ng mga taon na para ba’ng wala na’ng pagasa si Juan at Maria para mag-negosyo at gumawa ng ikakakita ng hanapbuhay.
    Siguro dahil na din sa mga lalaking ayaw umalis sa kanilang mga bisyo na alak, sugal, atbp imbes na maghanap ng pagkakakitaan ng marangal na ipapakain nila sa kanilang pamilya.
    Siguro kinakailangan ng ni Juan at Maria tumayo at paandarin ng mabilis ang progreso ng Pilipinas kung sila ay magtatrabaho.
    Siguro huwag natin palabasin sa balita na gobyerno na naman ang may-problema. Kung mahirap pa din si Juan at Maria ay tignan nila ang sarili nila kung bakit ganon pa din ang kanilang kinalalagyan.

    Patay gutom is part and parcel in the existence of the Pino nation. This is not something new, folks. Pls dont make this a big deal, in fact, the govt must try to instill family planning all the more . Most of the brown Pinos love to fck all day long and produce anaks and anak anakans under one tin roof makeshift. Ang labas dyan ay patay gutom ! Now who s to blame ? Its a cultural thing common in all developing countries not excluding Pino nation.

    • frudo

      at sino ang dapat sisihin bakit ganun ang cultura ng mga Pinoy, eh di yun mga walang expirience sa pagpapamilya na kala mo ang ga galing mangaral na humayo kyo at magparami, punta kayo impierno pag gumamit kyo ng condom or contraceptives, diba kita nman na effectibo pangangaral nila sinunod sila ng mga Pinoy kaya ngayon mga patay gutom sila, pero yung mga nangangaral wow sasarap ng buhay,

  • cato_the_younger

    No matter how many gets lifted out of poverty but if more and more people from the poorer classes gets born every minute, that will never change the poverty rates. Since the fertility rates are normally higher in the underclass, it will also make it more difficult to bring them out of poverty as more and more resources are needed to do so.
    Of course, the government also needs to spur economic development in the rural areas. As of now, a good chunk of the country’s budget goes to imperial Manila. If development is spread out over a wider area, less people will have to flock to MM.

  • jorgii0550

    The government should invest more on education so poor Filipino’s will be able to go to school…..giving dole outs will just make the poor lazy.

    • patriotic_act

      I agree

  • patriotic_act

    even if the government create jobs that cater the undergraduate highschool students they still lack the necessary skills thus they will not earn that much.

    and we all know that the poor aint like a hard job that pays little.. so they prefer to remain poor than take it.. pathetic..

  • BoyBakal

    What I like in poverty is….For poverty or worse, children are bonded together.

    • frudo

      kaya pala nasan ang mga bata andun sa kalye walang mga damit namamalimos walang makain, kasi sampu silang magkakapatid, bonded nga sila sa kalye kasi di rin sila kasya sa barong barong nilang bahay,

    • speaksoftlylove

      That is kung walang RH Law.

      Kundi mapipigilan yan, “Children will not be bonded together” even in case of poverty. Instead, children will be ended together. But i admit that initially children will be bonded together dahil maglalaro sila ng lobo gawa ng condom habang naglalovingloving si tatay at nanay.

  • riza888

    Not every poor country stays poor. If you notice, India and China, for example, have had made major gains in the last few decades. They are a lot less poor than they used to be. The problem with the Philippines is its corrupt government. Bad government can make poverty even worse, and it prevents any real improvement.

  • patriotic_act

    poverty is a choice, we all know that.. these sc*ms know that popping one children after the other even without a decent job will make life harder.. but they still do it.. so its their choice..

    so we should not help people who dont help themselves, what we need to do is not to create more jobs because simply there are LOTS of jobs, (people are just not qualified because they either dont want it because it doesnt pay big or they are uneducated so no skills) what we need to do is create STRICT LAWS that will discipline our society..

    specially the poor.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      Poverty is not a choice you dummy. This is politically motivated. Corrupt political dynasties wants all Filipinos to stay in poverty, it’s easy to manipulate during election. Poor Filipinos suffering from malnutritions will sell their votes to stay alive for a couple of days. You donkey, blame it these people who already suffered.

        in a forum like this we are always bound to get people who dont disagree to us and its natural.. but what lacks here is respect.. thats why I myself will not respect those people who dont respect me..

        so lets forgive the kid.. his parents failed him.

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        throw whatever you have. your post is humiliating to the poor people and blame the state of poverty in the country.
        the government never think about job creations but only think about their self interest and amassing wealth. People in poverty is easy to be manipulated during election and will hardly question the poor performance of politicians. Just give them a P1,000 and they will sell their votes.

      • patriotic_act

        because they are plainly a humiliation to our society, they are not disciplined and what they do is the own reason whey they are poor.. there are LOTS of jobs to cater them.. pero ayaw nila.. bakit? kasi mababa ang sweldo.

        bakit ayaw nila ng mababang sweldo? kasi madami silang anak.. bakit madami silang anak? kasi nga t*nga sila at di marunong mag isip sa buhay na hindi nila alam na mahirap na nga sila dapat nag stick nalang sila sa isang anak para kahit mababa ang sweldo nila sa mahirap na trabaho.. mapapag aral nila yung anak nila..

        at yung anak nila hindi na magiging mahirap paglaki nila kasi “educated na”.

        ok ka naman pala mag air ng opinion eh, problema sayo nang iinsulto ka pa.

        those kids wasnt given a choice.. their poor parents did that choice for them, even if it will be really hard to live in poverty their parents didnt think of that.. they just made sure they bring them into this world para meron silang “kadamay”.

        those are selfish parents if you where to ask me

    • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

      I partly agree with you.

      I agree that there are jobs. People are just either lazy or they are unqualified.

      I disagree that all those experiencing poverty have a choice. We need to distinguish poor from extremely poor. The poor have a choice. The extremely poor doesnt have a choice.

      The poor are people who doesnt have enough to sustain a comfortable life. They have a choice. They can either work or work harder. Extremely poor are those with no choice. They have no education at all because the generation above them also had no education. They live out of nothing. They are incapable to sustained working. Palaboy laboy sa kapaligiran. These are the extremely poor people that need help. You cannot give them jobs. The only way to cut them off from extreme poverty is to give education to their children in the hope that their children will break them from the bondage of extreme poverty. Forget about the parents. They are hopeless to find a meaningful job. They have no skills at all. The only use for them is to make sure they take care of the children to learn from school and get the education they, as parent never had. That is the only way you can break extreme poverty.

      • patriotic_act

        good point, but what we dont want to happen is those extremely poor parents to continue producing more kids.. we cannot control them cant we?

        kids born in poverty are the most kawawa here because hindi sila nagkaron ng choice if they wanted to be born on poverty, yung parents nila ang nagdecide nun for them which is unfair to the child.

        yes partly they dont have a choice, because their parents made sure of that.. so I believe we must do something to prevent that from happening again in the future generations.

        the choice that I said is the choice made by the poor parents.. and they are the ones we must keep in check by enacting strict laws no matter what.. or else we will just keep on retaining this kind of culture among the poor people.

        good view you have tho

    • FORTHE GOOD

      From 28.6% in 2009 to 27.95 in 2012 reflects change since the figure is not the same. Although there is little change, I appreciate how the government is doing its best in improving the lives of the poorest of the poor. Some sectors do not like the conditional cash transfer but the data above shows the poor sector really needs them. It is good that the budget for this purpose was further increased in the 2013 budget. I have no doubt they will further increase it in future budgets that will cover additional funds for small business and micro enterprises as proposed by Senator Bam Aquino to help the poor not only in sending their kids to school but in starting up their livelihood endeavors.

      On top of it all, around P 50 Billion was saved in 2012 from graft and corruption due to more prudent spending and more transparent bidding and implementation of government projects resulting from good governance and reforms instituted by PNoy. The saved amount also goes to social services for the poor.

      It is unfortunate that the little change in poverty incidence is eclipsed by fast population growth which the govt is trying to addressed with various programs and policies among which is the passage of the RH law.

      available. Who are you to blame them their passion of love and to make
      them stop having the pleasure of sex? Still many pinoys believe that
      abortion is a big sin. Once they are having sex do you think they think about having another child? NO! It is more pleasurable when you one is about to come and have it inside, or maybe you as a blogger is single, never been married or still virgin.

      • patriotic_act

        there’s no need to air insults man, I dont really understand why people result to name calling and sarcastic insults when its far easy to disagree and air it in a civilized manner?

        have your parents ever guided you at all? man I dont really care about what you think but I wont insult you for it.

        can you please use your education? I guess both of us have college degree and diploma and got good education..

        show it man, dont act like you didnt had a choice…

        jeez

      Little food = small brain (a child need 10’000 nutriments to built the brain)

      Leaded blood = smaller brain (10% of the kids have twice too much lead in the blood)

      Fake text books are the coffin last nail.

      The situation looks hopeless.

  • koolkid_inthehouse

    only 1% of the Philippine population is taking advantage of the economic growth. No decent jobs were created. Artificial or temporary jobs have increased but not substantial enough to raise the living standard of 99% of poor Filipinos. Politicians and their cronies have taken advantage of the economic boom because they’re closer to the golden platter. Filipinos will continue to eat green mangoes and bagoong for lunch.
    Ask your candidates for decent full time jobs so that you can feel confident to go to the bank and ask for a mortgage loan to buy a house. That’s what you call real job.

    During campaign rallies ask these candidates if they can create decent full time jobs with benefits for million of unemployed Filipinos.

    • Loggnat

      What is wrong with green mango and bagoong? Add tuyo and slices of fresh tomatoes, yummmyyyy…. :))

  • patriotic_act

    The media is misleading the people when talking about this “poverty” issue.

    they always make it a point that poverty is because the government FAILED and the government AINT DOING THEIR JOB.. and the government aint making LOTS OF JOBS.

    why cant the media admit that 80% of the blame on poverty is to the poor themselves.. its their choice.

    the government can only do one thing.. but the rest should be done by the people they are helping.. the government can bring investors in.. but those businesses require certain skills for their job openings..

    thus the poor must atleast try to help themselves by making sure every children they pop out will go to school.. because if not they will simply become like them when they grow up.. filthy poor liabilities of this country.

    • speaksoftlylove

      Desperate pathetic twist.

      Look dude, the report came from National Statistics Coordination Board. It did not come from PDI and if you search all leading PH mainstream media they carried the banner story and most made it their headline, dogyot. Pasalamat ka pa nga leaning ang PDI sa administrasyon pero nagreport lang ng ng eksaktong NSCB survey ayaw mo pa? Dogyot ka talaga. Why can’t you wash your yellowvirused eyes and see the truth?

    Government survey na yan ha mga yellovultures? Baka magrereklamo na naman kayo dyan na UNA ang may pakana ng survey.

    Take note “Poverty remains unchanged since 2006.” Ito yong tunay na sukatan ng ekonomiya hindi yang Fitch rating na patungkol lang sa pangungutang na lalong maglulugmok sa bayan. Ito yong maliwanag pa sa sikat ng araw na patunay na idol talaga ni PNoy si GMA dahil pati poverty level kinopya. Pero sa totoo lang, mas marami ang naghihirap ngayon kaya mas mataas ang poverty level. Ayaw lang itaas ng National Statistics Coordination Board dahil maliban sa takot kay PNoy ay masama ang epekto sa Team Malisya, mageelection pa naman.

    Eat your heart’s out barangay team malisya, lusob as soon as possible at kailangan ang expertise nyong mga spin masters with 1 million likes to boot.

      • speaksoftlylove

        After several days from this news for sure, SWS and Pulse will come out with their own “uncomissioned surveys” that the number of satisfied filipinos rose from 81% to 91%.

        Maybe this is what you mean by saying “choice ng karamihan yan ang manatili sila sa hirap” practically saying that karamihan sa mga pilipino ay mga “masochists” or masaya kapag naghihirap at nasasaktan. You are simply pathetic and your mind is bordering on insanity. Worse, your cause is not by reason of poverty but greed.

        kaya nga sino nga presidente mo ang magaahon sa kahirapan ng mga Pinoy sa loob ng anim na taon, wla ka nman maisagot mas pathetic ka kasi anti admin ka anti rh ka pero wala ka nman mailatag na solusyon kung paano maiaahon ang mahihirap sa kahirapan, nasabi kong choice ng karamihan pinoy na maging mahirap kasi dahil mahirap na nga sila nagaanak pa sila ng marami, eh ikaw di ka nman nakatira sa Pinas kaya di mo nakikita ang totoong kalagayan ng mga karamihan sa mahihirap na pinoy

      Walang ibang sisihin sa patuloy na kahirapan . Tayong mga Filipino rin ang gumawa nito. Mga angkan at pamelya nating walang alam . Na patuloy na naniniwala sa kasinungalingan ng mga nagpapakasarap sa kaban ng Bayan . Pilipinas nangunguna sa corruption . Dahil ang mga PDAF nila ay maaring ilaan sa edukasyon ng mga mahihirap subalit nais ng NASA gobyerno na patuloy tayong Gawing tanga para patuloy silang makapagnakaw saang bansa ka makakita na ang napatunayang nagnakaw ay naka takao ulit sa politika. Only in the Philippines . Napatunayang Hindi nag remit ng mahigit isang bilyong tax now Lahat ng anak NASA pwesto na sumasayaw pa sa harap ng masa ang tangang pinoy naman papalakpak now sino ang Dapat sisihin ? Walang iba kungdi mga angkang nating mangmang. Kung ang ninanakaw nilang bilyon ay nilalaan sa magandang programa sana ma ibsan ang kahirapan. Subalit tanga tayong pinoy putak tayo ng putak Hindi gumagawa ng hakbang isa na lamang ang panawagan bumuo ng movement revolution patayin ang pamelyang magnanakaw. Kailan pa tayo kikilos Kung ang Lahat ng Filipino ay hired killer na ng mga mayayaman? Kailan tayo gagawa ng hakbang ? Pnoy is the best economist and Leader pero Hindi nya masugpo ang malalaking buwaya na naka upo sa pwesto. Pagsabihan ang mga pamelyang kulang sa kaalaman wag iboto ang trapo or pamelyang magnanakw ng gumaan naman ang buhay ni sambayanan

  • superpilipinas

    It’s not a surprise.

    Aquino’s accomplishments do not flow down to the poor. How can it? When there are many reasons plaguing this government. Just take the case of Bureau of Customs….P120 Billion Pesos lost in 3 years just by oil smuggling. Imagine how that money could have been used for the poor. What about other goods like cigarettes and alchohol. Yet Aquino would not replace Biazon who does not even have the background and competence to run BoC. Then think about other bureaus aside from Customs.

    Then think about the loses because of corruption and incompetence that could be prevented by transparency and Freedom of Information. Why would Aquino not put FOI as No.1 priority?

    Bottom line….I wouldn’t vote for Team PNoy. It’s just as bad as UNA, LP, NP, NPC, Kampi, Lakas, etc.

    Please give the Philippines a chance. Vote for NEW CANDIDATES and NEW PARTIES. They are only proven in their private practice but at least we know that they will not give us another 6 years of nothing for the poor. If they don’t perform, it is easier to replace them than these TRAPOS, Political Dynasties, Incompetents, who have entrenched themselves in Congress.

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      what else they will do but screw because they can’t afford a TV set. Can’t afford even condom. If they only have 1 child, they still can’t afford to care for them, so for security in case something happen to the other one, they screw some more to reproduce for more. Really, what’s the difference if you have only one or 9 children?

      • frudo

        kung isa lang anak mo at minimum earner ka at least mapapakain mo ang anak mo at mapapagaral mo kasi may public school nman tayo. pero kung 9 ang anak mo pagkain palang kulang na pera mo, so paano na ang shelter, clothes, education, pag yung 9 na kids di nakapag aral walang edukasyon, magaasawa ng maaga, manganganak ng marami, titira sa squatter, ang magpapatuloy lang ang ganun cycle ng buhay nila. pagnagkataon ang magiging trabaho nila mangalakal ng basura. na naging career na ng napakaraming Pinoy nakakalungkot pero totoo.

  • patriotic_act

    that photo above this article only shows how those st*pid lazy-a$$ poor people live their lives..

    by producing one kid after the other.. and will ask to government to help them.

    this kind culture among the poor people are what we need to fix, because we are simply patronizing their “lack of sense” and “outlook in life”.. those poor people who dont work, drunkards by night and made baby-making their early morning habit are a “liability” of our country.. we must try to put an end to it by introducing STRICT LAWS that will punish them.

    imagine the kids born in poverty.. its not their fault if they are poor.. their a$$-clown parents are to blame, because they never gave those children a chance to have a comfortable life by bringing them into this world in a state of poverty..

    and what will happen to those kids? 80% of poverty-born children will just repeat what their parents did, and when they grow up they will just do the same.. pop more children in poverty.

    20% of those poverty-born children are unique tho.. they will not repeat their parent’s mistakes and will go a different route.. 5% will be exceptional and will leave their poor families and fend for themselves until they rise from poverty alone.. 15% will become criminals and communists.

    The government should prioritize education, implement RH Law ASAP and improve the business climate in our country to create more jobs.

    To those crabs and Pnoy critics who keep on whining without contributing to anything just stay out of the way mga bwizettt!

    • discerningmind

      South Korea’s pop. in 1950 was about 25 million people while Philippines was at around 19 mill. If S.K pop had grown in the same rate with Phil, there would have been 125 million mouths to feed and S. Korea’s economic miracle would have little or no use for the country. Implement RH Law now and I don’t care what these critics say but it would take a while to make up what were not done or to undo what were done harmful for your country in the last 60 years.

      • discerningmind

        Using China or India to support your position is a poor one and have been used several times before.

      • Kamoteng Baging

        How do you explain China and India – two of the worlds most populous country in the world with very healthy economies.

      • discerningmind

        Yet there are still hundreds of millions of poor people in each of those countries making less than 2 bucks a day. India’s population growth rate is at 1.3% annually which is lower than Phil’s 1.9 % but the government of India is trying to lower it down.

      • Tommy

        Just FYI as well: our GDP per capita is significantly higher than India’s (2.5K compared to 1.5K) as well.

      • Tommy

        China = one child policy. So yeah, population control was important there, as instead of having dozens of children couples had one child and were more able to send that child to school.

        India = Most of the country is languishing in poverty. PH GDP per capita is significantly higher than India’s. Like, IIRC, around $2.5K compared to $1.5K. So same problem, really.

        Anything else?

      • frudo

    • josh_alexei

      P noy K-12 is a good measure, but I would prefer to see more funding on basic education and more upgrading of teachers and modernization of equipment and facilities to keep the Students interested in staying in Schools..in my country, we are not very rich compares to many other countries, but we allocate upward to 40 % of our Provincial Budget to Education to the Tune of $10000 per child average per year, public and catholic schools..our Universities and Colleges are Universally subsidized for up to 70 % and Students can avail of Grants, Bursaries and Loans. We Invest on Education and in Our children.

      • Tommy

        Agreed. IMO, more funding needs to go to schools, which along with with the CCT programme should hopefully get more of the population through college. End of the day, education is simply the best route out of poverty.

    Open up the hinterlands for these squatters to live and till the land. THe gov t must utilize the mountainous areas for agriculture. Employ experts and use these untapped manpower to bring Pino nation back as a self reliant agricultural nation.

    Just look at Israel now. The arid landscape didnt stop the Ashkenazi Jews out of Europe to maximize its potentials. Dismantle the oligarch s and political warlords/dynasties that owned most of the lands, and convert them to productive industries and farmlands. Pinas has limited landmass and it has to be used to the most efficient ways. Kaso lang lahat itong mga nasa poder ay mga oligarchs and dynasties that controlled 99 percent of the landmass.
    The rest are lowly alipores following everything what they say.

        you mean the palestine that was composed of bedouins arabs and jews that the british stole from the turks they are were palestinians the jews that fought in the desert in ww2 were called palestinans as were the jews living there. when the british left they trained and armed the arabs then 5 countries attacked the jews who had nothing ,but the jews won and every war after that the jews were outnumbered and out weaponed but the arabs lost the moral of the story if you dont want to lose land dont fight a war where you lose. anyway the land was mandated to them if you want history the turks should get their land back it was theirs for hundreds of years. they owned everything from the balkans to iraq so it all should be theirs. it was called the ottoman empire.

  • tra6Gpeche

    PH poverty unchanged? Should the Filipino people be surprised? The economic growth of the Philippines will not win against the growth of the Filipino population. It is more or less 1.5 million additional Filipinos every year. Per the Phil Census of 2000, as of May 1, 2000, the population is 76.5 million. As of 2010, the population is 92.3 million. RH, if implemented and followed seriously, will ease the miserable and despicable poverty of the majority of the Filipino families in the future. Seeing this picture of a poor family, with at least six children, will make everyone to vomit.

      • FORTHE GOOD

        Looking at the data, from 28.6% in 2009 to 27.95 in 2012 reflects change since the figure is not the same. Although there is little change, I appreciate how the government is doing its best in improving the lives of the poorest of the poor. Some sectors do not like the conditional cash transfer but the data above shows the poor sector really needs them. It is good that the budget for this purpose was further increased in the 2013 budget. I have no doubt they will further increase it in future budgets that will cover additional funds for small business and micro enterprises as
        proposed by Senator Bam Aquino to help the poor not only in sending
        their kids to school but in starting up their livelihood endeavors.

        On top of it all, around P 50 Billion was saved in 2012 from graft
        and corruption due to more prudent spending and more transparent bidding and implementation of government projects resulting from good
        governance and reforms instituted by PNoy. The saved amount also goes to social services for the poor.

        It is unfortunate that the little change in poverty incidence is eclipsed by fast population growth which the govt is trying to address with various programs and policies among which is the passage of the RH law.

        teaching people to be responsible by implementing laws…ang bawal dapat walang patawad na ipapatupad…hindi yung bigyan mo ng condoms tapos yung bawal na pinaggagawa okay lang….we are making more irresponsible people in that way…

      • frudo

        teaching people to be responsible by implementing laws, tama na yan agree ako jan pero naging effectibo ba hindi nga kaya nga may rh tayong pinaguusapan dito diba? kung bibigyan mo ng condom ang isang mahirap na magasawa ano masama dun? kasalanan ba gumamit ng condom ang mag asawa? kung naganak ng marami ang magasawa na di nila kaya irresposable na sila nunn pero yun mga anak anakan nila sana naman maturuan ng hindi na magaya sa kanila,

        wala naman problema sa akin kung gagamit sila condoms, pero yung binabayad ko na tax ang gagamitin nila sa kalibugan nila, aba ay masaya sila…

        Counting on rh bill to address or resolve our pressing issues is just way total misconception, bordelining idiocy.

      • frudo

        hindi nga mapapakain ng rh bill ang mga gutom na mga bata, walang ganun pero matuturuan ang mga ibang magulang na wag mag anak ng marami kung di nila kayang bigyan ng disenteng buhay, sa ganun mababawasan ang mga kawawang mga bata na to na nakahubo namamalimos walang maayos na tahanan, naging ganun nlang cycle ng buhay nila,

      • boldyak

        wala naman problema kung turuan maging responsable, yon nga ang dapat…pero bigyan buwanan supply ng condoms…medyo tagilid..lalong maging irresponsable sila…

      • frudo

        eh sympre ilang beses ba magsiping ang mag asawa sa isang buwan, 2 time s lang ba or once a month di ba hindi, pag bago halos araw araw, mapipigil mo ba yun? iresposable na ba sila kung magsisiping sila araw araw?kung magaanak sila ng marami na hindi nila kaya dun sila nagiging iresposible. eh yun mayayaman may pambili ng pills di ba araw araw yun iniinum? eh yun mahihirap na cant afford nga eh dapat lang suplayan ng pills kada buwan kasi nga araw araw yun iniinum, or kung ayaw ng pills eh condom, alangan nman na yun condom re usable. kung ayaw ng condom eh di injectable, may choice naman diba so ano nga ba problema dun, di nga naging effectibo yung gusto nyong pamamaraan, kaya bigyan ng chance ang ibang method

      • boldyak

        bakit mo bigyan condoms?…turuan mo magtrabaho, para may pambili condoms…

      • boldyak

        walang problema sa pagiging maawain…yan nga dapat..pero bigyan mo ang isang humihingi, puputaktihin ka…at nagiging hanapbuhay na nila ang paghingi…mag-isip din tayo sa kung sino dapat bigyan at hindi…bigyan mo condom ang malibug, pag hindi nabigyan ano gagawin?…pag nabigyan ba ng condom, magiging responsable na?…i doubt, lalong maging irresposable…proven na yan…

        conditional cash transfer should only be temporary…people tend to depend on it only to live…in the end we are making more irresponsible populace…

      • Platypus09

        That is only temporary until they find jobs.

        These people are irresponsible somehow. It is our fault as a society for not teaching them the right way of living, working for food and shelter, and spend money properly.

        We should be responsible for neglecting them. Whatever happened to them, we should be partly responsible. It is the responsibilty of our government, which is us the people, for helping them out live decent lives.

        Each person in this country, according to constitution, has the right to live.

        Living means ability to pursue happiness with oneself and with others, thus each has the the right to be assisted by anyone or our government for temporary subsidies on necessities like milk, food, shelter, and clothing, till they find jobs and eventually pay taxes for our governments like anybody else.

        RH bill is not the solution. The rampant corruption of local officials is the main cause of why Philippines could not propel itself out of poverty.

        The only reason why Philippines is growing because of the OFW remittances.
        We need to populate ourselves because that is the work horse of our economy. 100Million population is not enough.
        If we implement RH bill, our population will go down and not up. This has been the trend in European countries when they have free reproductive health system.

Eto ba’y resulta ng “good governance and reforms instituted by PNoy???” At saka, SAAN NAPUNTA YUNG 40 billion pesos na Conditional Cash Transfer ng gobyerno para sa maralita?
        Let’s not kid ourselves: Philippine poverty will NOT be eradicated (or even reduced) by adding one more Aquino to Congress (be its name be “Kris” or “Bam”). Rather, let us look deeply into OURSELVES and tell ourselves WE DO NOT DESERVE all this BS from trapos and nauseating household names from the political pigsty. We MUST take our future into our own hands and CONVINCE ourselves that we can do it – with blood, sweat and tears if necessary!

        The RH Bill is a genocide tool. Its not any different than Planned Parenthood which if you do the research was started by Margaret Sanger, the wife of 3-in-1 oil owner Noah Slee’s money. Sanger was ONE OF THE FOUNDING MEMBERS OF THE AMERICAN EUGENICS SOCIETY (AES) which is a sister company of the GALTON INSTITUTE. One of Planned Parenthood’s heads was Bill Gates Sr. Bill Gates Jr. is now fostering eugenics with his GMO bio engineered Monsanto based food scam and Gates Jr.’s TED seminar of using vaccines is on youtube for you to see the weasel speak his diabolical plot.

        Anyway how does this relate with this thread? Economics in the Philippines is and has been controlled by foreign globalist banker eugenicists like Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan et al, & the largest banks on the planet. Look at your flag, the all seeing eye in a triangle is right there point blank. And so is there a triangle on the Phil Presidential Seal, the Quezon City seal as well as ALL MAJOR AND MINOR BANK COMPANIES among other business entities. They control this government, having convinced your local politicians to put in place the RH Bill, and the 12% VAT among many other things like the multi-national food, pharmaceutical, fast food products that are purposely laced with toxins and adjuvants designed to poison us, make us sick, The 12% VAT on everything which was placed all over the world, will not help any economy grow because it lowers the ability for anyone to buy anything in all directions. This then bankrupts all industries in a domino effect. Follow? Meanwhile the bulk of this 12% VAT goes to the pockets of the banker eugenicists who bought off your local politicians to get them to go along with the scam. The only country to free themselves from these foreign bankers is ICELAND. And their economy sprung back to life. The U.S. is also under these eugenicist bankers’ thumb, even their White House belongs to these crook bankers as well as the Federal Reserve. The terrorist incidents are the banker crooks’ gimmicks to bring on a POLICE STATE to where they can bring in NEW WORLD ORDER with the ENDAGME BEING MASS GENOCIDE OF SIX AND ONE HALF BILLION PEOPLE FOR THE 21ST CENTURY AKA AGENDA 21 which FIDEL RAMOS SIGNED US ONTO IN 1997 WITH PA 21. It is not a “green movement” as it self-describes itself, it is not “sustainable development” either. That is a vague word that is used to distract our focus. When you see the word “sustainable” or “redevelopment” this is what is going on AGENDA 21!!! But the real sick plan is to pack everyone into megacities and then kill us off with so many ways, food, water, drugs, air, bio engineered viruses, and even nuclear weapons, to where these banker crooks can own the entire planet. It gets more involved as their plan IS to keep 500 million humans as slaves world wide, while these eugenicist wackos plan this TRANS-HUMANIST phase of the world’s history, download their consciousnesses into ROBOT BODIES so they CAN LIVE FOREVER!!! I know its weird but this is their plan AND THE DOCS ARE ONLINE THAT STATE THIS. So back to economics.. they want to keep us poor, getting rid of us and using our money to achieve their endgame.

        If the church keeps blocking the government’s initiative to educate the poor on family planning by any method, the CBCP should initiate its on program for family planning on natural method. we really need to control our propulation growth lalo na doon sa maginalized sector.

      • CommonSens6

        The RH Bill is now law but the SC decided to block it but hopefully it will have the wisdom to finally have it implemented because one of the solutions to poverty reduction is population control. Family planning the natural way (pulling out, abstaining and rhythm method) are not very effective and the worse the Church advocates pro-creation (go out and multiply) which is of course was only good during Abraham’s time.
        Now don’t get me wrong I’m a practising Catholic however I do support use of effective family planning either artificial or natural especially for the poor who can ill afford to raise children. Cheers!

        Donkeyholes, did you tell them to stop reproducing to achieve a western living standard? Do you think westerner has the time to screw around when they’re working 40 hours a week to achieve their current lifestyle? Do you think westerner are not well inform about birth-control, why do you think condoms are available on all variety stores in the western countries, highly educated and well knowledgeable of the economic condition? The westerner knows the laws that if you impregnate a woman, the laws says that its your responsibility to support the child, if you don’t comply, the law will force your employer to send the percentage of your pay for child support. The west will take your children if you leave them unattended and can’t provide proper nutrition. Do you think westerner will simply keep silent about lack of jobs? Do you think westerner don’t riot because they’re simply bored and unemployed? Do you think crimes will not increase when there are jobs?
        Donkeyholes get rid of your rose colored glasses and get some brain. In western countries it’s the job of politicians to care of the population, you donkeyholes are simply gullible.

        Lumalabo yata ang ating pag-uusap. Sang-ayon ka ba na napakarami ding mahirap nuong pahanon ni Ginang Arroyo? Kung sang-ayon ka, ang ibig sabihin ay sa isa at kalahating milyon na idinadami ng tao taon-taon, ano mang pag-angat ng ekonomiya ay magiging walang kabuluhan. Mabilis ang pagdami ng Pilipino kaysa sa pagbuti ng eknomiya. You said that it is not entirely Mr Aquino’s fault. That means you are also blaming Mr. Aquino. For what reason, kabayan? Per this article, there is already a strong economic growth. You should, at least, give him credit for that! But still the poverty of the Filipinos is still unchanged. Why? I believe it is because of the rapid increase in the Filipino population. Jobs? Created jobs are much less than the number of Filipinos that need job. There are simply too many Filipinos in the Philippines. Many Filipinos are already outside the Philippines. If there were only 50 million Filipinos now, very few Filipino families would be poor. RH, if followed seriously, will slow down the increase in population and future generation will definitely benefit. Two children per a poor family will be the ideal number. What is wrong with that? Now, if you are wealthy, you can even have 15 children because you can afford to feed them and send them to good schools. Simple, right? Why would any poor family have 6, 8, 10 or 12 children and not be able to provide them with good quality of life? Implementation of the RH is the only solution that will benefit the future generation of Filipinos.

      If you want to understand why despite the economic growth, a very large percentage of the population isn’t benefiting, go to Youtube, type in search ‘wealth inequality in America’. Though it’s in the American context, it’s very much universal. Population growth or not, the free market system is unwittingly (or not) designed to make the richer grow richer and the poor poorer. Cliche as it is, that’s reality.

      • tra6Gpeche

        There is no need, kabayan. Too much Filipino population is one of root causes of the poverty of Filipinos. If today, Filipinos were only 50 million, there would be much, much less poor Filipino families. Wealth inequality in America? Of course, there is wealth inequality in America! But you don’t hear any American citizen, with or without college degree, working outside America as “alila” or housemaids. On the contrary, Philippines is #1 in the world when it comes to having “katulong” in almost every country in the world. If you happen to go outside the Philippines, most likely, the first impression is you are a miserable “katulong” or housemaid. No matter how fast the Philippine economy grows, severe Filipino poverty for many families will not go away if the population increases by 1.5 million every year.

        tell that to the chinese! Are they still nanny today like yester years? Not anymore because they work hard, kung me kita sila, paiikotin ang kita na iyon para sa ikalalago ng negosyo, kung si pinoy iyan,ipambibili na ng pang show off, iyon ay sa mga pinoy with business, eh iyong mga walang pinag kakakitaan? ganong wala na nagng makain, pang show off pa ang inuuna….kahit sabihin mong marami ang mga pinoy, di rason iyan.. wla lang kasi trabaho dito sa atin… ayaw magsaka, ayaw mangisda, mag iskwat na lang sa menila, para sosyal ha ha ha…. pinoy nga naman oo….

        Why would I tell that to the Chinese? I can’t even speak Mandarin or Cantonese or Fukien! Magsaka? May lupa ba silang sasakahin? Kaya nga ang daming iskwater sa halos buong Pilipinas!

But if you read my comment, my concern is for the future generation of Filipinos and not of today. The effect of RH is for the future and not for the present.! Gumagawa nga ng isang daang libong trabaho ang gobyerno kada taon subalit dumadami naman ang mga Pilipino ng 1.5 million taon-taon, paano na ang 1.4 million?

      There are only two things we need:

      1. Government needs to subsidize food and other needs of the poor for the time being till they get jobs after training. Government needs to help them find jobs, if not create jobs for them such as by building new schools around the country and thus elevating academic status of our children and create jobs for NEW teachers at the same time, just an example.

      2. Private corporations and small businesses need to expand and create jobs for everyone.

      All wee need is jobs and more jobs to alleviate poverty, plain and simple.

      • JOHNCeneza

        Kahit gaano ba karaming jobs ang macreate mo, it is still be overwelm by the shear number of new individual entering the job market year after year. Its what we call the law of supply and demand. daming supply but wala namang demand. so we lower the supply by lowering our population, then we produce quality workers not quantity. Quality workers earn more thus rise from poverty is likely. But importantly financial education should be taught also kasi kahit gaano pa kalaki kinikita mo, but you don’t know how to save and budget, hindi ka aasenso.

        Savings is the most important part cause if you spend like no tomorrow, and biglang nagsara yung company mo, bagsak ka uli sa poverty.

      • koolkid_inthehouse

        Correct. Jobs are needed in this country. Filipinos are willing to work on decent full time jobs.

      • Benigno the Turd

        Subsidize? Why? Let these schmucks bear the consequences of uncontrolled pregnancy. Let the irresponsible parents die of their self-inflicted poverty. The more government feeds these parasites, the more they will suckle from tax money I paid. I’d rather they lower tax rates so people who actually earned money get to keep most if it, spend for their needs, and stimulate the economy due to increase spending. That’s JOBS.

    • cato_the_younger

      You are right. Since it is the poorer classes in RP who has the highest fertility rates, it is no wonder that it becomes very difficult to make a dent in poverty reduction. For every person lifted out of poverty, more people take their place. It also makes it very difficult to help the marginalized sector of society as the rapid population growth would require more and more resources.

    • Platypus09

      First, educate their parents on how to raise these kids properly.

      Second, government needs to subsidize their food by giving their parents enough money to buy necessities.

      Third, train their parents to be able to find jobs from housekeeping to security guards and the like.

      Fourth, force their parents to bring them to school everyday to get proper education.

      This is a wrong picture to see. If their parents can not provide for these children, then the people that comprise the government should step in and help them out.

      Otherwise, these kids should be given up for adoption if their parents fail to provide or raise them properly.

      DSWD should encourage these parents to give them up for adoption.

      • tra6Gpeche

        Good idea, kabayan. But I don’t think these sugestions of yours are feasible.

        That is just a band-aide solution. Give up for adoption but they still produce more? Anu sila factory ng mga bata?

      • Platypus09

        I never would steal their kids. I have my own. But if you cannot take care and raise yours properly, it is a crime for neglecting their needs and their rights to live a better life. Plain and simple.

        Otherwise, give them up for adoption, and let hands of capable others to take care of them properly, give them love and their needs for goodness sakes.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i have had people ask me if i would take or buy their kids. i adopted 3 of my wifes cousins because their mother didnt want them now she as 4 more. i cant adopt all the poor kids in the philippines. who is going to adopt kids that have rat bites hair missing and full of worms. the 3 i adopted i had to deworm.. kids that suffer from malnutrition who wants them all of those who think this i the solution adopt 3 or 4 of them. the church dosent want them and you dont want them. so who is going to take them and heal them up.. people here want to work but there is no jobs because they are fisherman and there is no fish anymore.. people leave here and go to the cities and end up being squatters because they find theres no work there. the only ones who find jobs are young good looking girls who make a living on their backs.. .

      • tra6Gpeche

        It will not change drastically because there is simply too many Filipinos in the Philippines. And many Filipinos are already outside the Philippines. As I said, economic growth will not win against the tremendous increase of the population every year which is 1.5 million, more or less.

      if there is anything that increases, it is the disparity of the rich and the poor in this country. it proves that the recent so called “improvement” in our economy favors the richests and it failed to be an inclusive growth that leads to job generations.

      • tra6Gpeche

        Of course, there is disparity! Because few are getting richer and many, many are getting poorer. If it is the other way around, then there will be no problem! How would you make the so called improvement to benefit the million poor Filipinos and much less benefit for the rich Filipinos?

    • Jeremiah_CheGuevara

      WRONG WRONG Wrong premise! Provide more economic opportunities. There are big families who are well off and small families who are poor. Numbers is not the reason but economic opportunities available. RH law will not solve poverty. More Economic/better livelihood/work opportunities will.

      • tra6Gpeche

        How could you have 1.5 miilion or more jobs every year? If you can do that, then you are correct. Of course, there are big and small families who are well off. But how many big families are poor? It should be a lot, lot, lot more than those with small families.

    • Descarte5E

      Blaming the poor for being poor? When China opened its door to industrialization, its those million of poor workers that fueled China’s economy to double digit figures year on year for at least 10 years; China might have started with a very low wages 15 years ago, but the same area now, South China, where industrialization started, pays a minimum wage of $250 for 40 hours work week. With over a billion population, China is experiencing labor shortage. Bring manufacturing back to Philippines and those poor Filipinos will have better life, and then RH bill will not be needed. RH bill is the wrong mathematical approach to the problem. Increase the numerator rather than decrease the denominator (population). If the government provided opportunity to the people to become productive, the progress can be limitless.

      • tra6Gpeche

        Per this article, there is already a strong economic growth in the Philippines. However, this growth is not enough to support the 1.5 million increase of population every year. Unless, you can increase the economic growth by, at least by the same amount of 1.5 million every year. If we can do that, then I agree with you. Unfortunately, that is impossible! I remind you that there are already many Filipinos working in other country outside the Philippines! Just give the RH a chance. The future generation will benefit from it!

      • Crazy_horse101010

        do you think you can put i billion people here when now you are out of fish the veggies keep getting smaller because of over farming and they al ready say there is a shortage of water. they are growing corn on the sides of mountains now where a goat cant hardly walk . and every person born uses more water more food and needs more land which is that much less to farm. and why are chinese risking there lives to get out of there country where are you going to get the power for plants which are energy hogs where are the raw the materials for manufacturing and who you going to sell to. china.

      Stop ranting, but start looking for ways you can help our kabayans find jobs.

      We should group ourselves, invest and create businesses for the older ones and newly-graduates alike.

      This is what we need. Find or innovate new products to be sold here and abroad. Manufacturing them create jobs for lots of Filipinos.

      Don’t wait for foreign investors, they can only help us so much. There is an overabundant of labor or human resources our country is producing.

      You can blame the uneducated mothers for overproduction of babies, but the babies are here. We have to help raise them to become healthy and productive future citizens of this country.

If the Filipino population was only 50 million, I am sure there would be less poor Filipino families. And there would be a lot, lot more middle class. RH, if implemented seriously, would benefit the future generation of Filipinos. The increase of 1.5 million Filipinos every year is crazy and economic growth of only 10% or less will not solve poverty of many, many Filipino families. Unless, the President is a magician to create 1.5 million jobs or more every year!

      • Godzilla

        even if there will be fewer filipinos if the government will not provide sustainable growth in the economy like expansion of our manufacturing sector, development of our agriculture, fight for corruption and efficient tax collection, the rich will remain rich and the poor will remain poor.

      • tra6Gpeche

        We have so many “ifs” here. I can also answer you with so many “ifs.” However, Did you not read the whole article? It says: There is a strong growth of economy in the Philippines right now. Ms Henares of BIR is efficiently collecting taxes. As for corruption, the government of the Philippines will always be corrupt because Filipinos, ordinary or not, with business and no business, are used to bribing the Police and government employees and their officials. The Chinese businessmen will always bribe the government. This has been the way of life in the Philippines since I was born and that was in the 1940s. I believe the Chinese are the inventor of bribery. The point is that the corruption will always remain…period. As you can read, the Philippine economy is already growing but with the much faster growth of the Filipino population which is 1.5 million a year, this economic growth willl mean nothing year after year. If the population growth is only 10 Filipinos a year, then this economic growth will be felt by the majority of Filipinos in the future. But you are also correct. Even if the population of Filipinos, instead of increasing, decreases (because no Filipino woman is having baby anymore) but the economy is regressing or backsliding, instead of progressing, then the Filipinos will still remain poor and there will be fewer rich Filipinos.

The communist China managed to create jobs. Look at the Philippines. Where are the jobs that PNoy created? Meron ba? Walaaaa puro laway lang si kulot.

        Suma total walang trabaho ang dahilan sa kahirapan ng mga Pilipino at hindi population. Walang trabaho dahil hanggang ngayon puro drawing pa rin ang PPP at foreign investors ni PNoy. Idagdfag mo pa sa ;libolibong umuwi galing sa ibatibang bansa ng kamusliman at Sabah. At ang masaklap ay tinulungan pa ni PNoy na umasa na lang sa gobyerno ang mahihirap dahil sa kanyang CCT.

        You sound scary, for one thing, and out of this world. Where are you from?

        You sound very disrespectful and with bad manners. Eww..

      • 33Sam

What do you think all those massacre terrorist things happening are? Those are steps to the new world order which is what i already told you; the 20 richest families own the planet, they want to kill off 90% of the humans on the planet, have been actually for decades through things like diet soda with aspartame, polio vaccines, fake swine flu vaccines, Monsanto GMO Roundup pesticide producing vegetables owned by Bill Gates who has been to Los Banos and raided our stocks of original seed so he can put them in his Svalbard Doomsday Vault in Norway that he and Melinda have built for them rich people building bunkers for once they nuke this planet they will have the good seeds to start the world again meanwhile they left us with gmo/hybrid rice and vegetables that are bio engineered to cause organ failure and other diseases that come on at age 60 if you’re lucky..see this is real stuff. SCARY?? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT IS BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAKE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUP!!!!!!

        There is no war, war-freak..

        You are simply misinformed, plus sounding jealous.

        Even if you complained about these people, what are we gonna do about it?

        People in general are NOT jealous with these 20 people. They don’t care if they have billions of money, they know they are legitimate and legal money. They worked hard in creating their massive businesses and are being paid off. Good for them.

        For our generation, as long as live comfortably the way they want their lives to be, who cares about their billions and billions of money. That is their money and they worked hard for it legally.

      • 33Sam

        I AM MISINFORMED? YOU CAN’T EVEN LINK A PROPER SENTENCE TOGETHER WITHOUT COMMITTING FALLACY OF ARGUMENT AND YOU SAY I’M MISINFORMED? Here we go again with wandering thought process. Get a clue GIRL!! YOU DID NOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING I SAID, YOU JUST THINK YOU DO..No one is talking about being jealous. That is your weak brain doing the talking. AD HOMINEM FOLKS FOR THOSE NOT INFORMED>>> Its not about the money it is about the PLAN TO KILL OFF SIX AND A HALF BILLION PEOPLE ON THE PLANET FOR THIS TWENTY FIRST CENTURY BY THESE BANKER CROOKS. FOLLOW?????????? And they are making us poor at the same time while they work TOWARDS GENOCIDE!!! THIS IS WHAT YOU DON’T GET BECAUSE YOU PROBABLY GOT CROSSEYED WHEN YOU READ MY POSTS… You have no knowledge of how a lot of this money is made nor do you understand that these people own the printing press that prints the money which is not backed by gold anymore, they keep printing it whenever they want. It has nothing to do with anything you just said and no one EXCEPT YOU was referring to any of that.

        So when JON CORZINE the former GOVERNOR of New Jersey moves BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM PEOPLE’S ACCOUNTS AT MF GLOBAL AND THEN SAYS HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO IT, THEN HE CAN SAY WHAT YOU SAID? WHICH IS “They worked hard in creating their massive businesses and are being paid off. Good for them.” YUUUCKKKK……

        DO YOU KNOW ABOUT JON CORZINE? Of course YOU DON’T because you are a little girl in your mommy’s house snacking on diet soda rotting out your brain:

        cnbcDOTcom/id/100664176

        moneyDOTcnnDOTcom/2013/04/23/investing/mf-global-corzine-sued/

        Well these bankers are already bankrupting people, STEALING MONEY OUT OF PEOPLE’S ACCOUNTS, foreclosing on mortgages BECAUSE THEY WERE DEALING WITH DERIVATIVES.

        After crony Billy Clinton repealed the GLASS-STEAGALL Act that’s when these crooks made money off of derivatives GAMBLING WITH GHOST MONEY and then spread out THEIR UTANG-LOSES TO EVERY COUNTRY ON THE PLANET SAYING IT WAS “THEIR NATIONAL DEBT.” Hahahahahahaa.. Its all beyond your comprehension.

        Look: DON’T THINK THEN.. YOU ARE GOOD AT THAT!!!!!

        Oh by the way, there is a war. its called WORLD WAR Z..

        May I suggest, the government should start to do his job and concentrate on the work, not stealing and show of.
        Basic infrastructures, decent education(fake text books), Police, Army, JUSTICE, but what to expect while observing NAIA, a small airport(twelve millions passengers) with international average taxes, C. R without water, run way on a pity state as well with airplanes ground infrastructures, to make it short, one of the world worst airport with plenty money taxes income, this is the Country mirror, a failed state.
        I have plenty compassion for P-Noy, what a hard task for an honest man to run a thief’s Place with so few educated’s !
        Do the country will recover from 400 years of the ugliest colonialism run by the Clergy and conquistadors ?

      • Platypus09

        These things are entrusted to the top officers of these agencies.
        Apparently, things do not look the way we want them to be.

        Blaming game helps our country to a certain extent ONLY but not much.

        Talk to them, email them, discuss things with them on how things can be impoved, and OFFER or SUGGEST solutions. This is a free country. You can talk and discuss things supposedly with them, especially with government officers and workers.

        As a society, we e just not trained enough in school on how to take care of ourselves properly from health to making sure we have decent work or profession after high school or college; how to make sure the public is properly served; and how to plan and make our surroundings nice and tidy.

        We need to learn these things in school, other than academic subjects.

        Our President CANNOT take care of all these things. He delegated these things for hired government workers to do their jobs. Apparently, they don’t know any better either and don’t do their jobs well. They should be fired.

        Our colonial past is history. We learned from it. We have to move on and see what we can do to help, NOT just CRITICIZING our President.

        Let us listen to President’s speeches and goals for this country, and let US ALIGN OURSELVES with his vision, and do something about it, NOT just leaving him alone to do everything.

        I did not vote for Pres Noy, but I have to move on and listen to what he wants us to do or lean to.

        We should NOT act like Jose Rizal who was a “dignified rebel”, who kept on criticizing the Spanish govierno back then. Rizal’s style does not work in our generation anymore.

        We need to work, be united with everyone and work with our government.

        I have nothing against Jose Rizal, but his rebel ways should not be glorified to the max. He did what he needed to do out of circumstances but his rebel ways could be emulated by anyone of us, esp younger generation, thinking that they can be heroes like him, supposedly.

        Rizal was a BAD guy if you think about it, and should not be emulated by anyone. In this generation, we don’t need rebels anymore.

        I don’t know about you guys, but our country has had enough of “rebels”, especially the Muslim and CPP-NPA rebels.

      • Platypus09

      • 33Sam

        Best thing I’ve seen you post so far. But stretch out a little further and off in the distance you can see a foreign globalist eugenicist banker force pulling the strings of your local politicians, even up to the big house on the river and these banker mass genocide crooks are keeping us poor on purpose to kill us all off eventually as they believe they own the planet and us “animals” are taking up their space, all while your leaders are bowing to this banker force. Wrong reasons? You bet and the biggest reason is that they just want to take care of themselves by leeching off the public while the people that control the leeches are leeching off of them. In the end we get sold/float face down, down the river while these trapos are pretending they don’t know what is going on behind the scenes..

      • 33Sam

        But it IS the foreigners who have kept the Philippines and the rest of the world poor. The entire planet’s economy is being bankrupted by 20 families who have been controlling this planet for at least 500 years if not longer. Why? Because they don’t want you or I or our families to live. So why should they help us build an economy? Notice how this foreign-banker-inspired-central-bank-controlled 12% VAT was added to everything ALL AT ONCE? THEY EVEN INVENTED NEW PLACES TO ADD THIS FCUK TAX!!! AND IT IS A FCUK TAX BECAUSE THEY ARE FCUKING US OVER….How is this supposed to help us? All it does is put money in the foreign banker crooks’ pockets after they bought off your local politicians WHO ALLOWED THEM TO WRAP THEIR VAMPIRE TEETH ON OUR WALLETS!!!. It can’t help generate an economy because after putting 12% VAT ON EVERYTHING>THERE IS NO MORE MONEY TO BUY ANYTHING ELSE SO HOW CAN ANY INDUSTRY SURVIVE IF NO ONE HAS MONEY BECAUSE ALL THEIR INCOME IS GOING TO THESE FCUKS’ BANK ACCOUNTS WITH THE BLESSING OF THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT?

        Look at what they have done to the UNITED STATES? The same 20 families bankrupted that highly industrialized country, CLOSED ALL THE FACTORIES AND SHIPPED IT ALL TO CHINA AND ELSEWHERE. Its all BY DESIGN!! WHY? BECAUSE THE PLAN IS TO MAKE EVERYONE POOR AND DEPENDENT ON THE FASCIST GOVERNMENTS RUN BY THESE FOREIGN BANKSTER CROOKS, SO WE ARE HUNGRY SICK AND CAN’T BUY WEAPONS TO KILL THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING READY TO KILL SIX AND A HALF BILLION OF US!!!

        If this does not sink in, it will when huge “terrorist plots” (faked by these 20 richest families using their private goon squads known as the FBI CIA UNITED NATIONS NATO COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS ET AL) like a nuke or biowep going off in your well and pre-packed cities to amp up the kill ratio, then you might get a split second of sanity and note that we are KEPT POOR FOR A REASON. AND YOUR POLITICIANS ARE HELPING THEM GET AT IT.

      There will be a reduction of poverty incidence in the country if we can attain Compunded Annual Grwoth Rate of our GDP of at least 7% in the next 12 to 15 years.

      How do we attain this rate of growth? Among other things, we need:
      1. Sustained good governance. Craft and pass a FOI Bill.

      2. Amend the economic provisions of our 1987 Constitution to promote (a) more FDI, (b) more competition in strategic sectors of the economy, (c)ETC
      3. Give attention to sectors (manufacturing, tourism, agriculture, including agribusiness) that will generate jobs for our high school and college graduates
      4. National Unity….End the problems with the NPA and MILF and other groups.
      5. Marami pang iba.

      • Descarte5E

        Eradicate corruption and red tape and make the process of doing business in the country smooth, then there will be more investors in manufacturing; Remove the pork barrel; apply election rules effectively putting a cap on campaign expenditures to make it a level playing field; the minimum campaign fund requirement for a national position is absurd because it restricts the opportunity of poorer candidate who can be wiser than a candidate who is just richer. we can be more specific rather than those theoretical measures…

      • Platypus09

        We can only depend on foreign investors that much. They can only help us to a certain extent.

        That might not be enough for millions of us here in this country who need jobs.

        We really have to find ways in creating jobs annually for ourselves, especially the jobless older ones and young adults, with the help of our government and other private corporations or entities.

        We have to create jobs in this country alone as FAST as we are producing labor annually, especially those who graduated from high schools and colleges.

        Our schools or universities should pitch in by educating the youth on how to become successful entrepreneurs.

        Their schools or colleges of business should be topnotch, I mean really good.

        We cannot just depend on AIM or Asian Institute of Management in Makati that produces excellent and successful managers and entrepreneurs from around the world. That place is just so expensive.

        Public universities, as well as private universities, can compete with AIM if they want to at cheaper tuition fees. It is a matter of determination and doing it.

      • 33Sam

        Ok Annie, did you factor in that the globalist agenda is to dumb down the human population, been going on for decades really, that college is a pyramid scheme with student loans, when the plan is to bankrupt the world economy so they can kill us off and take over the planet? I think you need to READ AND RESEARCH ANYTHING YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BEFORE SO YOU DON’T LOOK STUPID VOMITING CLICHE CHUNKS OUT OF YOUR MOUTH. THERE ARE NO JOBS BY DESIGN!!! NURSES ARE WORKING AT CALL CENTERS, DOCTORS TOO AND SOME ARE DRIVING TAXIS…. SO HOW IS CRANKING OUT MORE DIPLOMAS GOING TO HELP THE ECONOMY WHEN THE ECONOMY IS BEING DETERIORATED BY THE SAME PEOPLE WHO YOU’VE ELECTED TO RUN YOUR COUNTRY UNFORTUNATELY!!! THE BIG HONCHO BANKERS LIKE THE IMF AND WORLD BANK PURPOSELY MADE YOU INDEBTED TO THEM SO THEY COULD CONTROL YOUR COUNTRY, ITS POLITICIANS, ITS PEOPLE, ITS NATURAL RESOURCES!!! THAT IS THE OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK, CREATE WARS BETWEEN TWO COUNTRIES AND THEN LOAN THEM MONEY SO THAT YOU AS THE LOANER BECOME THE OWNER OF THOSE COUNTRIES CAPICHE?????
        WHY DO YOU THINK CROOKS LIKE HILARY CLINTON WHO PARADED HER SMELLY JUNK OVER HERE DRESSED IN ILLUMINATI FANFARE WITH TRIANGLES ALL OVER HER DRESS, WANTS TO BE HEAD OF THE WORLD BANK MORE THAN SHE DOES WANT TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES??? HMMMMMMMMM??? ITS BECAUSE THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. IS JUST A PUPPET LACKEY JOB. SO WHAT DO YOU THINK THE POLITICAL OFFICES IN THIS COUNTRY READ LIKE TO THESE BIG OLD-RICH, BIG-MONEY-FOREVER EUGENICIST MONSTERS, WHO OWN THE UNITED STATES MILITARY AS THEIR GOON FORCE, THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND THE PRINTING PRESS THAT CRANKS OUT ALL THOSE DOLLARS????

THE SAME FOREIGN BANKING FORCE CONTROL THE U.S. AND ITS POLITICIANS ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP. Ron Paul should have won but he was cheated. He was the wiser candidate, spoke the truth at his debates, in fact U.S. NEWS MEDIA TRIED TO SILENCE RON PAUL, MANY TIMES NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO HIM DURING DEBATES. WHY? BECAUSE THE MEDIA IS CONTROLLED BY THIS BANKING FORCE!!! So you can’t get a “wiser” candidate in place because he would be outnumbered by the crook trapos already feeding on the lifeforce of this culture AND 100’S OF OTHER COUNTRIES..

        The truth doesn’t matters, the same is true with this country. Money talks.

      • 33Sam

        You got the chain right but you missed out on the reasons. Immigrants are now being invited to into the U.S. to bring down the wages, flood the voting ranks with ill informed “patriots” who are too illiterate to understand the real issues and will put a check mark by anything that has been well advertised as popular and trendy. This is part of the post industrialist phase they are putting the U.S. through and the immigrants help them achieve that goal by bankrupting the economy to where they can bring in a Police State and then New World Order and from there methodically kill off 90% of the world’s population. True money talks but in the stratosphere of the trillionaires, they are frankly tired of money. They are more concerned with death and eternal life. They are also tired of taking care of “inferior” races they consider as “animals” so they want to get rid of 6.5 billion (maybe more) of us so they can take on robot bodies, live forever with a few million human slaves left over for grins and giggles I guess. At this point the TRUTH DOES MATTER, because once they get to the level they’ve planned of getting rid of us, money won’t mean anything as its also a blood thing. You have to be related to them by blood to be considered as part of the family. All U.S. Presidents are related by blood somewhere along the line. See how this works? Guess most of us are S.O.L.

        Well it’s good bucket list, but it’s simply not attainable- a 7% growth rate over 15 years every year? How? A FOI Bill won’t help. Amend the Constitution? Cory’s Constitution etched in granite, there is many a member of Congress, controlled by the oligarchy who will slap that one down.

        “Give attention to sectors (manufacturing, tourism, agriculture, including agribusiness) that will generate jobs for our high school and college graduates” Yes, good idea, but this attention has never been given in our 67 year history- I think we might need another 67 years to wrap this one up. National unity? How?

        Yes your ideals are commendable, but unrealistic…in PH it simply does not happen that way, why? Because this is the Philippines that’s why…Mr Quezon’s ‘hell’ basically…

        Begin in our self. Be entrepreneur, help others.

      • buttones

        Being an ‘entrepreneur’ means getting into a ‘risk’ business, that is what the word means- there is enough risk day to day as it is, and ‘entrepreneurs’ do not venture to ’help others’ they do it for themselves. Not only that, entrepreneurs are born that way, it is not something one can teach, it’s like ’style’ you’ve either got it or you haven’t and no amount of money will turn a pigs ear into a silk purse- as they say…

      • ARIKUTIK

        To be an entrepreneur is not that tough or risky. It only takes passion and determination with little help from knowledgeable friends. The main problem IS > example: a friend of mine bought a dilapidated 2 story house in congested area inside the city. He turned it into boarding house for students. It did not take long, a guy claiming to be from govt. agency knocks on the door asking if the boarding house got permit and follows safety regulations. My friend was so Angry with the Useless crocodile govt. agency that he just give up the idea of boarding dormitory and turned the house into simple house for rent. This crocodile govt. is against poor Filipino entrepreneurs. They may succeed to compete with entrench Mestizo Taipans.

      • buttones

        Should not a boarding house for students carry permit and fire regulation certificates anyway? Or was your guy just trying to cut corners? Sounds to me your guy was not an entrepreneur at all, just another slum landlord in the making- follow the rules!…

      • ARIKUTIK

        Now an argument is carried to the right direction. Filipinos are known to be poor so are the FILIPINO Entrepreneurs but the crocodile government of the RICH imposed rules and regulations to poor Filipino Entrepreneurs as though they got have tons of capital to adhere to. But the very ….very ….very…. strict rules and regulation are not imposed to Rich friends of this government. In fact the entrench rich are exempted from paying full amount of tax. Take the case of Lucio Tan.

        Native Filipinos entrepreneurs can not survive competition in this government friendly to entrench MESTIZO TAIPANS. They are exempted from rules through bribery.

        PH business rules are meant to keep the Fili[pinos as workers only.

      • Platypus09

        That is true. There are still issues in bureaucracy that need to be straightened out.

        Policies, or rules, should have been laid out beforehand in writing, or at least making them simplified and less costly, for anyone interested in making money or setting up small businesses.

        We want our people to make tons and tons of money, of course less personal jealousy from others who are lazy, and help fill our government coffers with proper income taxes to be used by our government to pay government workers, improve our infrastructures, and support its initiatives or programs for the poor and the rest of us.

THEY MOVED ALL THE FACTORIES OVERSEAS. 50m are out of work and on welfare. THEY WANT TO PUSH AMERICA INTO A CIVIL WAR!!! MILLIONS OF AMERICAN ARE BUYING GUNS, MRE FOOD SUPPLIES, WATER BUILDING BUNKERS. What are Filipinos doing? Arguing over silly pointless issues. The same will happen here. They do not want prosperity because they want the to killl 90% of the population of THE WORLD not JUST THE PHILIPPINES. Ikaw dapat GUMISING. Kaya the RH is the first step to GENOCIDE.

        Sounds familiar, looking for permits so they can charge you more money. Its actually a “TAX MAPPING” scam that is part of AGENDA 21 that these foreign bankers bought off your local Municipal Hall officials to pass these extra “crocodile” as you say money scams.. Then they will add 12% VAT to the money you collect from all the boarders and add as many fees and penalties as well. On top of that you will pay taxes on your income as well. Its basic ploy is to bankrupt the property owner until he can’t own the property anymore. Part of Agenda 21 is to ban any private ownership of property. land natural resources. In short it will be the wealthiest families who are behind this Agenda 21 who will confiscate all lands, all natural resources and pack people into small cell like dwellings in megacities so you can be controlled much more.

        Watch this to know more on youtube:

        rosa korie agenda 21..

        watch?v=JPX_H5qxfKw

        Its not just the U.S. its for the world. The Philippines signed on to this in 1997 with PA21 signed by executive order by then President Fidel Ramos after he was sent to the UK to be knighted by the Queen in 1995.

        Almost right man. And right now run like heaven by the Americans is not even the same dream. This country is controlled by the same leech force of globalist foreign eugenicist banker force that the United States is under. So laws, changing the constitution is a band-aid that won’t fix a gaping bleeding wound. We need to WAKE UP AND SMELL THE BANKER CROOKS SNAKING AROUND OUR GOVERNMENT HALLS ADDING A 12% VAT TO BANKRUPT THE ECONOMY (besides poisoning us with their mulit-national “homebaked goodness” fastfood, foodstuffs and toiletry products) SO WE BECOME WEAK AND INEFFECTIVE TO FIGHT THESE GLOBALIST MASS MURDERERS WHICH IS THEIR AGENDA 21 PLAN. WE ALREADY SIGNED ON TO AGENDA 21 IN 1997 AT THE HAND OF FIDEL RAMOS WITH HIS EXECUTIVE ORDER PA21. It reads as a “green movement” or its key word “SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT” BUT THE TECHNOCRAT GLOBALIST COLD BLOODED PLAN IS TO KILL 6,5 BILLION PEOPLE THIS 21ST CENTURY.THIS IS THE ENDGAME. THEY BRAG ABOUT THIS TO THEMSELVES!!! ARE YOUR LEADERS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT? NO, THEY ARE IN CAHOOTS OR ARE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY. So re-shift on our priorities. KICK OUT THE FOREIGN BANKER CONTROL AND THEN WE’LL SEE AN IMPROVEMENT. THEY ARE LIKE A BLOOD SUCKING TICK MAKING US WEAK WHILE GIVING US A DISEASE AT THE SAME TIME.

Plain and simple: this world is not the disneyland you and your family was raised to believe it is with fantasy land and wonderland, and chocolate bars. yes they did build disneyland but that was a military experiment to study how to contain small populations of people.

        My friend I’m wide awake… its 4:26 PM where I am. Marami ka masyadong pinaniwalaan sa nabasa mong “conspiracies theories”. Wake up into reality and stop blaming your and other peoples misfortunes to the outside world, WB or IMF. The Filipino is poor because he is lazy, mahilig magtambay-barkada, tsismis, kumain nang kumain hanggang butirik and mag-reproduce like rabbits! At naghanapbuhay ako’t walang time magreseach anong dahilan bakit mahirap ang Pilipinas nabuhay ako doon!

      • 33Sam

        No you dont understand. You are brainwashed or you were dumbed down from the vaccines you took when you were a kid. These are not CONSPIRACY THEORIES. THEY ARE FACT. But you cant see them. Its ok man. Not everyone has discernment. Population can be controlled if the economy is made to prosper. And even still there is enough room on the planet and nature takes care of its own balance. What I’m talking about is too over your head. “Outside world?” its not an outside world anymore they are pushing for new world order. Agenda 21 is to make it a one world, no more countries..what i’m talking about affects the entire planet and all the humans on it not just for the philippines…

        watch that rosa korie clip i sent you..if you cant understand that then you lose.plain and simple… smarter people than you are discussing this so what does that say abut you? you are thinking like a LOSER!!!

      • 33Sam

        So fcking what if you are a physican? You would have impressed me more if you said you were a holistic healer. Did you know the medical profession was purposely chosen for genocide by the globalists years ago using BIG PHARMA? They purposely made the medical profession the center be-all so they could dupe people into accepting genocide drugs that they bribed physicians to prescribe. So don’t try and impress me ON THAT AS these days being a doctor isnt what its cracked up to be. Lots of doctors are quitting the profession when they realize the plot to use the medical profession as a Nazi goon squad and it started with the POLIO VACCINE. It was bio engineered to give cancer as old age sets in. Now they ARE MAKING VACCINES THAT HAVE ADDED AJUVANTS THAT ADHERE TO THE DNA OF THE HOST VICTIM SO THAT THE MOTHER PASSES IT ON TO HER CHILDREN..The swine and bird flu? All a scam to get people to take more “vaccines” that are genocide tools. What do you know as a physician? Do you know this? Maybe, maybe not. All you did was memorize things you learned in school so I’m not impressed. Rote memory is not a sign of intelligence. I suppose you are giving out Gardasil to your patients or vaccinating ad infinitum little kids? I KNOW ABOUT DOCTORS, I GREW UP AROUND THEM. Doctors are good at ER surgeries but for chronic illness they are trained to turn into leeches sucking off patients by prolonging their illnesses, NOT CURING IT AND THAT IS THE PLAN OF BIG PHARMA. And now with that ‘DONOR CARD scam going around, hospitals red flags go up and if you go into one and they know you signed a donor card they start taking out your organs and selling them and these are U.S. based hospitals as well. Worse here, you find little kids with heart, eyes and kidneys taken out dead on the side of a road with a thank you note..Doctors? Still doesn’t mean you are informed to the genocide plot. You thumbed your nose at the information I showed you yet you said you are a good judge of character? You’re not even a good judge of a profession so why should I listen to you? Wake up man you are not your job!!!

      • CommonSens6

        I’m really sorry for you my friend I don’t think I would be of help to you. I know a friend who trained at Mass Gen in Child and Adolescent Psych — just let me know if you need help. I can ask for special rate! But first let’s have you detoxed!

      • 33Sam

        You’re full of crap. I should be sorry for you but naaahh you chose to be dumb so thats your fault. You live in the U.S. per chance? And you don’t know any of this? What news do you watch? CNN NBC CBS? You may be a doctor but you are ignorant of what’s going on in the world. Psychiatrists are the worst fakers in the medical profession passing out Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Sertraline, more big pharma garbage?? Give me a break.. Detoxed from what? I don’t eat the crap you eat!! Geeze another dumb doctor..Btw, “doc”… Eli Lilly & Co. lied for 15 years denying the very real link between Prozac and suicide…great going there doc a bunch of eugenicists working with eachother…pathetic..

      • CommonSens6

        You may say I’d lived an hour away or so from your idol Miss Cookie– the famed real estate appraiser– but I’m somewhere else at this moment. But seriously, I want to help you; if you’re in Anytown USA or the PH you need to see a Behavioral Health provider and tell him/her you may have Bipolar Disorder type I per DSM-V Criteria. No need to thank me but I assure you, you’d feel much better and would see the world in a different way! Oh BTW how could you not include Fox Network on the choices? Cheers!

      • 33Sam

        Bi polar all because I flit through so many points trying to get as much info in as possible? It may come off as “bi-polar” to you but of course you were trained in the medical “profession” which is also part of this eugenics program started by the American Eugenics Society on the heels of the Galton Society who all got their cues from Eugen Fischer and the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. You are still full of crap and your diagnosis is still based on quackery for which the psychiatric “profession” is known. The government gives psychiatry its fake legitimacy. That’s how the game works. The government blesses the medical licensing boards that award psychiatrists permission to drug your children, alter their brains, poison them, and of course make all the fake diagnoses in the first place. So why didnt you prescribe electroshock therapy and MKULTRA re-programming? You are so full of it common sense is something you don’t have. There are no mental disorders. None.
        It’s fiction. It’s a billion-dollar fiction. It’s a gigantic steaming pile of bullsh!t. Always has been. There is not a single diagnostic test for any so-called mental disorder. Never has been. No blood test, no urine test, no saliva test, no brain scan, no genetic test. No science. So why hasn’t psychiatry been destroyed and outlawed? Because there is money in it. Big money. Pharmaceutical money. And because the public is in a trance. Mothers and fathers are quite willing to take their children to these brain poisoners…lambs to the slaughter.

        I should’ve said FOX AND BLOOMBERG but I got tired of typing the same thing over and over again. But here look at this photo, in fact print it out and put it on your wall along with your other fake diplomas:

        At least wake up to the PLOT OF MASS GENOCIDE BEING DISGUISED AS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. THE PEOPLE THAT ARE BEHIND THIS THINK THEY ARE TOO BIG TO FAIL. Yes it may be too late but we have to fight this any way we can. And being awake is the first step. We may lose but at least we didn’t go down ignorant to the facts. The reason there is no jobs is because its part of the dismantling of society at every level. Its called the boiling frog syndrome. Its done slowly until its too late. But they are speeding up the process. I suggest you research this and try and formulate it in your own mind and spread the information as how I’m doing. Of course its not perfect but it is real. This is all we have at this moment. They plan to kill us off and leave 500 million slaves while they, the richest people take on robot bodies. I know this sounds like a science fiction movie but those movies since they control Hollywood as well, were always their MESSAGE TO US that they are planning this. Now its HUNGER GAMES, OBLIVION, WORLD WAR Z. Once you are awake everything you see and hear will be clearer to you as to how they work using mainstream media, your local officials, all sorts of information sources to bend the truth and hide their plan. This sounds scary but so are their plans.

        Sana that is part of the solution, but the bigger problem is the foreign bankers who control this country whose secret plan (not really secret because they write about it amongst themselves) is to bankrupt countries, so we will be too weak to fight them and survive when they put in the CULL PHASE of their AGENDA 21 PLOT THAT FIDEL RAMOS SIGNED US ONTO IN 1997 WITH PA21. You can’t fight someone when you have no place to live and no money to buy food, let alone weapons. Follow? This is serious. They are getting away with a lot and your government officials only made it to their posts because they agreed (upon pain of death) to work for the new world order. Sick Sick Sick and pathetic. Where are the real heroes? We need another Lapu-Lapu. But we need to be awake that this goes BEYOND MONEY AND ECONOMICS. THERE IS A MASS GENOCIDE PLAN IN THE WORKS AS WE SPEAK AND THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE AT THIS POINT!!!

      • Platypus09

        I still have a hard time understanding your thoughts.

        I don’t know where your thoughts came from and where they are going. They are all over the place, NO ORGANIZATION whatsoever.

        What genocide? There is no such a thing. The people of the world is increasing at a rapid rate.

        What genocide you are talking about? I don’t see that happening. Perhaps, you are just full of PARANOIA.

      • 33Sam

        Well hang in there. Look up on wikipedia the Philippine American war.

        You will find this:
        “In light of the massive casualties suffered by the civilian population, Filipino historian E. San Juan, Jr., alleges that 1.4 million Filipinos died during the war and that constitutes an act of genocide on the part of the United States.[88]”

        This genocide has been going on for a long time but its due to get bigger this 21st century simply because now they have the weapons and the bio weapons to do it. In fact, Pol Pot in Cambodia was a globalist operative who killed 3 million of his own people during the Vietnam war. Mao in China anywhere from 60 to 80 million was also a globalist operative. They are killing millions of people in the middle east now but they are hiding it through mainstream medai CNN NBC CBS who make fake news reports and mock-up skits they put on fooling people into thinking its the truth.. Population reduction is part of the agreement with all nations who sign onto Agenda 21. So its important to know what Agenda 21 is and what they really plan for us. This is not paranoia it is AWARNESS!!

        Then there were millions killed in Russia, what about the people in Japan during WW2 in Hiroshim and Nagasaki with the first atomic bomb drops which was a test run for future nuclear bomb drops and we are due for WW3!!! They want to kill millions of Arabs and Muslim in the middle east reducing the population of Central Asia.

        Here is the quote of Zbigniew Brzezinski who is a present member of the Council On Foreign Relations who are behind Agenda 21 including the United Nations. Brzezinski was also 10th United States National Security Advisor under U.S. President Carter, and he endorsed President Obama in 2007 as the Democratic Presidential candidate while Obama is looked upon as Brzezinski’s puppet. Brzezinski said this: “it was easier to to control a million people, literally it was easier to control a million people than physically to kill a million people. Today, it is infinitely easier to to kill a million people than to control a million people. It is easier to kill than to control….” Zbigniew Brzezinski

        hear his say this here on youtube:

        watch?v=4usbR_kKCDs

        The genocide is also happening with vaccines they are giving to children as part of a “program” that are bio engineered to make humans sick, not inoculate them from the disease. The swine flu and bird flu are also scams to get people to take more vaccines that have adjuvants that attach to the DNA which makes you pass it on to your children. Even Gardasil a uterine cancer vaccine is such a bio engineered vaccine designed to make you sick and die early but is the medical profession doing anything? No! Thats why you wont know this unless you research it on your own. Its also in food, in candy, diet soda with ASPARTAME. Look it up; APSARTAME is the feces of Ebola virus they engineered into a sugar substitute, It was passed as a legal food additive through the FDA by Donald Rumsfeld, George Bush’s Secretary of Defense. They tried so many times to get the FDA to approve it it failed 6 times I think but through Rumsfeld and his influence they passed it. They put BPA in printer’s ink on money on cashier receipts, news paper ink, magazine ink, fax paper, in baby bottles, soda bottles water bottles. BPA was purposely chosen as a genocide tool. What is the Philippine govt doing about it? Nothing. Other countries have banned it like Japan. They are putting Sodium Fluoride in drinking water in hundreds of cities in the U.S.. Its not Fluoride for your teeth like they say as thats Calcium Flouride. Sodium Fluoride is industrial waste that they can’t bury or dump in the ocean so they put it in drinking water and in our TOOTHPASTE SO WE BECOME THE DUMPING GROUND.They are doing genocide from so many different directions its a nightmare to sort out. GMO hybrid fruit and vegetables were dumped into the Philippines disguised as “good ideas” but the GMO is genetically manipulated to change our DNA and make us sick. Corn is the most abundant GMO crop. Meanwhile Bill Gates Jr. who owns Monsanto has taken seeds from Los Banos and stored them in his Norway Seedvault. I know there is so much to know. At least I’m giving you starting points. Too much to know so you’d better decide whether you can understand this or not because like it or not its HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!!!

        True in theory but in reality the elections are staged. Even the U.S. Presidential 2012 elections WERE STAGED. They cheated to get their manok in AGAIN to FINISH THEIR AGENDA THROUGH HIM. 46% of elegible U.S. voters DID NOT VOTE BECUASE THEY DIDN’T CARE AND WERE DISILLUSIONED ON THE CHOICES. So what more here in dinky town, strip mall looking, sewer pipe Manila? Ron Paul should’ve won the election but they cheated him.

        You are the one who sound naive.

        These things are happening in other countries around the world. They make the world go round.

        You have the choice to stay in the boonies (boondocks or rural areas) and live there without paying all these taxes and toll booths.

        It is not the end of the world. The world remains round. Go and live in the boondocks.

        When you live in cities where lots of infrastuctures built, of course you have to pay for them. Nothing is given to you and the people for free. People paid taxes, they got the improvements, and then they pay for using them. That’s the way it goes.

        Like I said, in the boonies, you can live there without thinking about all these things. It’s an open space out there. Go..

        People of the new generation are not staying in the megacities. They don’t even think about it. There is nothing in the cities for them. Cities are overcrowded, lots of dirty slum areas and chaos.

        I don’t believe in whatever theory you mentioned. That theory did not work apparently. You are talking about unrealistic things.

        They are tearing roads to the boonies? I don’t think so. In fact, they are building more roads to the boonies. You are way out of touch, wherever you are.

        President Ramos was the past. He is not relevant to our current society. So, I don’t know what you are talking about.

    THe worse is yet to come to the detriment of Pino Nation.If this uncontrolled burgeoning population keeps doubling and increasing in record numbers plus the accompanying poverty, then Pino Nation will become a DODO Nation . The resources cannot keep up with the demands. It is time to move back to a more balanced economy . Refocus on food production and divert the educational system to be more ecofriendly and agrarian in scope . Stay away from too much heavy industries which only produce more collateral pollution and death . Yes , death and diseases as environmental degradation ensues. WHile the wealth goes to the rich elites and most are living outside of this country.

    Time for a drastic move to our roots as an agricultural self sufficient country able to live within its means in a health-enhancing enviironment . We must go back to the roots of our ancestors . It may sound corny but thats the way to life and simple living. The heavy industries and the derivatives of this came from globalization which is good but not entirely good in the long run . It has taken us out of our connection to the land the lifeblood of our existence. Just look at now, the environment has been damaged from 123 yrs since advent of the industrial age. It will take a thousands of years of even longer to reverse the effects of global destruction of air ,land ,water and vice versa.

    Aha, I got a good solution to slow down the population growth. No1.All couples who have already more than 3 children will be forced to practiced family planning by using birth control pills. 2. Those males who are drug addict and no work will be castrated for life time. Female drug addict will get tubal ligation for life too. Ito yong mga klaseng tao na walang karapatan magka-anak. 3. All prisoners ( which includes criminals, rapists, killers etc) will be castrated too. ang mga ito ay salut ng lipunan. 4.Lastly there must be a law that allowed young couples to delay their first born until the age of 30. And the government will not encourage mendicancy by giving dole out. 40 billion pesos a year wasted without any return at all. Why not use it for the agriculture sector to increase food production, reforestration projects and so on. No work no money program should be stricly implemented. this might be silly ideas but doable. We just need a hard working president with a brain which can think.Finally, just look at how many billions of taxpayers money being given out during election time just to buy votes. Just look at the GAA of 2013 and you will see hundreds of billions of taxpayers money being wasted this election just to buy votes.these money can be better use for job generating programs so that people are encourage to work and not just wait their monthly allowance for doing nothing.

    How can you lick extreme poverty? Obviously, you cannot eliminate it overnight. The underlining cause of extreme poverty is poor education. With no education, these extremely poor people have no hope to improve their life. They are simply treated as statistics. No one can help them. Not even the government. Bottomline is you cannot educate a poorly educated extremely poor people overnight. It will take at least 10 years to see the fruits of a good project on the issue. CCT is the right project addressing the issue. 10 years from now, these enrollees in CCT which numbers to 4 million families will produce about about 12 M high school graduates (assuming that the family has 3 children) who can be a sizable human capital to any nation. We can cut to half the Brazil experience on CCT. To the naysayers, it will come way after Pnoy is gone from the palace.

    On the incidence numbers, from 28.8 in 2006 to 28.6 in 2009, that equates to 0.2 improvement in 3 years. From 28.6 in 2009 to 27.9 in 2012, that is 0.7 in the same interval of 3 years. I’d rather look at it as improvement instead of saying “unchanged”.

    The more of these poverty stricken newborns cometh into the world, the more are added to the list of kotongeros,kawatans, holduppers, mamatay tao, kurakots, mangungutong, child traffickers, sex workers, sex maniacs, killers and the like . Pinos can do something to stop these by telling the RomaniKatolik na Simbahan to stop meddling in people’s lives. Stop encouraging the production of babies out of wedlock bec of the respect for life.

    This country will be dodo shzt in a manner of few decades if food supply cannot keep up with the rising population complicated by the rising cost of food to feed the young and vulnerable.

    The problem with the poor is that, they reproduce a lot quicker than the economy can absorb them then they turn to blame the government for something that it has nothing to do with.

    The report said the poorest provinces are in Mindanao. Yet the government still keep on building infrastructures in Metro Manila and nearby provinces thereby creating congestions and squatters just like in the picture above. I think one solution is to give more funding to projects in Mindanao and people will move there thereby easing the congestions in Metro Manila.

      Agree. Pero with PNoy, everything is difficult. Firing incompetent and experienceless Biazon who lost P140 Billion in 3 years is so difficult for a president who can only rely on his friends. The wisdom of prioritizing FOI is beyond his thinking ability.

      you know what’s easy for him? …..spend 3 Billion Pesos taxpayers money a year for condoms for people who itch and couldn’t wait to fffck.

      I voted for the guy because he was the “least of all the evils” in 2010 considering everything. His fight against corruption was promising. He did fight corruption. But not all the way as I thought he would. His incompetence now is not surprising from his track record before he became president. We need a much better president in 2016….and not coming from his party LP. Neither from others like NP, NPC, Lakas, or Kampi, etc which are full of self-serving trapos and political dynasties.

    Economic growth in general tends to not trickle down to the poorest of the poor, but it does help make the classes above that better off. Main reason being that the uneducated poor are generally not qualified enough to get any jobs generated.

    Most of the administration’s initiatives (the CCT aside) are things that will work in the long term. The RH Bill and K-12, for instance, are both things that are going to take decades before we see their effects. Incidentally, this does show why the RH Bill is so necessary: more jobs HAVE been created, but the poor are essentially reproducing at a faster rate than the economy can handle.

    That said, the administration do need to work more on bringing in investment and increasing the country’s manufacturing base. They’ve been taking (IMO) positive steps, but it’s going to take a while, and I do think they need some short term fixes to support the long term plans.

    I believe poverty has grown every year instead of “unchanged” because the government has not build enough infrastructure and provide jobs to the people. Instead of helping the poor people to get a job, the government just simply pick a few to giveaway money so they could merely survived. One of the example that came to mind is the way the government relocate poor people. The government not only would build sub-standard structures but also would also not build hospital, market, schools near or around it and then leave the people to fend for themselves. That’s the major reason why overcrowding and more poor people are still in the metropoilis because they can’t find a job where the government would relocate them. So they would sell their substandard housing and move back to the city. That is only one example I am giving here but there are others.
    Another that comes into my mind is the recent incident in the Senate where Enrile (and the previous administration since 1998 as the reports said) was giving away money to his fellow Senators without any accountability whatsoever. And here’s the kicker, the Senators accepted it without question except those who has gotten less than the others. How many of these abuse of power does our politicians do? and how much many were wasted? By the way, congressmen also received money without any accountability but say nothing about it. My challenge to everyone is to study carefully who are those politicians who are currently running for office who has given their time and full effort to help the people in need and those who have not. Start by finding out who are those that only attend a handful of session. Vote smart this time and don’tallow politicians to bribe you and make promises that they cannot possibly make. Good luck and God bless to all!

    The headline is not supported by the facts in the news report itself. How could it say unchanged when the numbers quoted in the news report is not the same.

    2006, its 28.8
    2009, its 28.6
    2012, its 27.9

    If we judge the numbers as reported and with a 100 M population, does it mean that in 2006, 28,800,000 are poor?
    2009, 28,600,000 are poor?
    2012, 27,900,000 are poor?

    It means from 2006 to 2009 there are 200,000 less poor.
    It means from 2009 to 2012 there are 700,000 less poor

    If you add the population change, then a corresponding percentage of 0.7 of population increase also became less poor.

    Bottomline, it is not the same.

      Mag ko-quote ka na nga lang ng figures, at least do a little research. Based on actual and projected data:

      Number of poor in 2006 = 85.4959 x 28.8% = 24.6 M
      Number of poor in 2009 = 90.17 x 28.6% = 25.8 M
      Number of poor in 2012 = 94.85 x 27.9% = 26.5 M

      We have more poor people now than ever before. Do you get it now?

      • crisostomo_ibarra_the3rd

        That even magnifies my claim. Using your numbers, there is still change. It even becomes more pronounced kasi over 200K at 700K ang numbers. Incidentally, how can we verify the numbers you gave, with one in 4 decimal points and some in 2 decimal points. Is that a product of extrapolation?

        So ang nadagdag na mahirap

        2006 to 2009 is 1.4M

        2009 to 2012 is only 0.7M

        Why is it lesser na mahirap ang nadagdag in the last 3 years? Hindi kaya improvement yun?

        Using your extrapolated data,

        The rate ng mahirap na nadagdag from 2006 to 2009 is 1.4M/5.2041M = 29.9%

        The rate ng mahirap na nadagdag from 2009 to 2012 is 0.7M/4.68M = 14.95%

        From 29.9% rate of change from 2006 to 2009, it became 14.95% rate of change from 2009 to 2012. Hindi kaya improvement yun?

        How about the data on Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia? Nag e extrapolate ka pa?

      • AntiAko

        First: the population data used are extrapolated dahil we do not do census yearly. The recent census years are 2000, 2007 and 2010 so clearly all data are not actual.

        Second: the reason why they say the trend has not changed is because poverty data should be seen as current. Ibig sabihin, hindi tama na isipin natin siya in terms of dagdag/bawas mahirap by comparing data from years apart. Example if poor in 2006 = 24.6M, 2007 = 50 M, 2008 = 1M and 2009 = 25.8M then it doesn’t make sense to say that 1.4M more poor people were added in 2009 since clearly, if the numbers were based on the previous year 24.8M more poor people were added. The same goes for the trend from 2009 to 2012.

        Therefore it is much more appropriate to look at the data as they are: they give us a picture of how many people are poor for a certain year. This way, the government can then see how many people they need to target for poverty alleviation.

        I hope you don’t lose sight of the forest by looking at a tree. In short, learn to look at the bigger picture! And the picture is not good: the number of poor Filipinos are increasing every year and this trend is not about to change unless we learn to manage our population, improve education access, and provide jobs.

    There is really no such thing as Republic of Pinas but Republik of Oligarchs and Political Warlords and Dynasties. This has been the legacy left to us by the Kachilas for 333 yrs and just mellowed down with the American blend of democracy which is a facade in itself.
    Remember the Kachilas who ruled much of central and South America in its heydays were exporting their version of feudalism. The Spanish Crown were their main provider of security and legitimacy.

    The feudal lords such as hacienderos and spanish elites (Peninsulares from Spain ) flooded the conquered lands and maximized their business ventures. While the Katolik Church became the other tool to tamed the people by injecting fear of God in their hearts. By such , they were very successful . If you refused to bow to Santo Papeng de Imahe, thenyou are declared a heretic and heathen bound for the gallows of death. Amen…

    nobody asked me, but…our patria adorada and like my fellow juan dela cruz could have been back to our feet in good standing by now if only our post ww2 politicians of yore entertained or cull for the best method from the “hibben and beyster plan” for industrial and commercial recovery and reconstruction initiatives proposed in the “plans” for country’s quick socio-economic and geo-politics recovery.
    both “plans” are akin to “marshall plan” promulgated in european country’s post www2 reconstruction and recovery initiatives.

    our country could have been just like germany, japan,singapore or korea by now. to wit, germany and japan are recipients of marshall plans.

    the ever constant incidence of poverty and all its woes that it brought into the lives of our millions of fellow juan dela cruz are the end-results from the self-serving actions of the post ww2 politicians in the like of querino and magsaysay regimes. and from which our present political dynasty, “trapos” and their conniving oligarchs in their symbiotic relationship helps to perpetuate the cycle of poverty.

        the philippines is the 5th worse country for foreigners to invest in because of the 40 60 law red tape why is cambodia and vietnam miles ahead of the philippines when it comes to investing what foreigner in his right mind is going to spend millions of dollars on a business he doent own. especially if his flippino partner screws him and foreigners dont win law suits which takes years to settle

        never said it would because without training no jobs plus if you read the ads here 90 percent of them say want someone between the ages of 18 to 26 and some say must be good looking so anyone who is ugly and over 26 is screwed. they only want youth and it shows because you have people doing jobs who have no experience. so until you change the mindset of employers you will have large unemployment i would hate to be older here and need a job. who trains the young .

    NSCB data undeniably suggests that our government and its programs are ineffective in fighting poverty.

    The people leading and running the government have the authority to do its job. But it has failed to live up to its responsibility. Those people have been re-elected and re-appointed over and over. Their moms and dads and brothers and sisters have been occupying those positions for a long time.

    So if you want success, you need to replace those people with new and better ones.

  • wawa2172

    Now there somebody, the The NSCB, whose telling the us about poverty incidence with sense. We have growing population to blame as it was saying however its not only the culprit because businessmen especially the Fil-Chinese don’t pay the exact taxes or do not pay at all by cheating on their income taxes. anti-smuggling and anti-corruption in all level is hardly felt. PNoy anti-corruption campaign is just for media consumption and the reality on the ground is hardly change. The economic growth is hardly felt because it does not add to the coffer of the government with BIR and Customs missing their collection targets heavily. Just look at NSCB data, almost all the poorest region is in Mindanao dahil napabayaan ito. Poverty is also an aid to election, the poorer is the region, the people are made dependent to the politicians. Votes can be bought and the life of people will never change. Mindanao will just be a land of promise forever. Economic growth? Ano yon? Never felt ah!!

  • jefferson

    CNN already predicted this. All the economic policies are effective, but only affect the middle class and above. The poor stay poor, that’s why we need the RH Law. Family planning allows poor families to have kids in school, while poor mothers can be employed instead of being pregnant every year. Education and employment for the poor will be heavily affected by the RH LAW. Sadly, we have narrow-minded politicians who listen to the most narrow-minded creatures in the planet, aka the CBCP.

Ganyan ka babawa at mangmang ang solusyon ni noynoy at ng pro rh bill. Ang china nga to address population problem has one child policy hindi pa masolve ang population problem, rh law pa kaya.

    Why we have more than $100 billion cash reserves? Are we not spending more money for the poor and for infrastructure- just like what Father Panlilio did when he was the Governor of Pampanga? (And then kinurakot ni Pineda iyong na-saved ni Panlilio as Pampanga Governor. Ganoon din mangyayari kung si Binay ang manalo sa 2016 Presidential election.) P-Noy must spend more for the poor and in creating jobs if he wants Mar Roxas to be our next President. Fr. Panlilio teaches us that being honest isn’t enough. The leader must create jobs and upgrade the status of the poor.

    • Tommy

      Another one who didn’t read the article and went straight to the comments to complain.

      Jobs were created. It’s explicitly stated in the bloody article. The poorest of the poor, however, simply aren’t really qualified for the jobs created. Some jobs were filled by the impoverished, but population growth has meant that the incidence remains the same. If jobs HADN’T been created, as you claim, then incidence would’ve gone up as population grew. It obviously did not.

      So by calling it ‘jobless growth’, you show yourself to be pretty ignorant. Really people, I don’t mind criticism of the administration, but at least think before you spew out garbage.

      And on the other hand, we have clueless crabs criticizing the government for things they don’t understand.

      The article explicitly states that some of the economic growth went towards college graduates. Are all college graduates ‘rich and oligarchies’? No. So your little diatribe is wrong already.

      But beyond that, attaining high economic growth (beyond estimates) IS an achievement in itself, and DOES offer benefits to the country in general (if not the poorest of the poor). Your ignorant dismissal of it as something meaningless because it doesn’t magically cure everything only shows that you are severely lacking in knowledge.

      Given that there isn’t much mention of the rich, no.

      It simply states that the poor did not share in the country’s recent economic growth.

        Then where did the economic gains of this administration go?

        Or was that a lie too?

      • Tommy

        To everyone else. Did you even read the article?

        The economic growth created jobs (and money coming into the country, but let’s leave that aside for now). Those jobs generally went to educated Filipinos, who aren’t necessarily wealthy. Many are young middle class people. Some of these jobs also went to richer and poorer classes.

        Those living in abject poverty however, generally aren’t going to be qualified for the new jobs created (things like janitorial work aside). New jobs were created, but given how many poor there are, and how many are entering the workforce (due to high reproduction rates among the poor), not enough jobs were created to decrease unemployment incidence.

        Essentially, it’s a complicated issue, but the economic gains were sound.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        So, if there are poor, middle class and rich classes? What percent of the population is poor, who did not share in these great economic gains.

        And if you scan the past 2 months of PDI, how many companies posted their quarterly gains? example below.

        How much of these profits did the middle class get? And the rich?

        Reference
        -yesterday, PDI posted PS index at 7k.

        Hey, im just trying to understand this.

      • Tommy

        For the bits you mentioned, they all really depend. This is a generalization, but increased income for some companies is generally distributed in two ways: it is either paid out to owners / shareholders or it is kept in the company for whatever use. Thus, only saying that net profit grew doesn’t tell you much in terms of wealth distribution, unless its mentioned in their annual reports or something. To see if wealth is actually being created, you;d then have to look at dozens of other factors.

        No offense or anything, but I really don’t have the time to teach a
        finance class. Would suggest reading up on this if you are interested
        in the subject though

        Ah, thanks anyway, for your time.

        Added:

        That saying, profits are either retained in the Companies, or distributed to stakeholders.

        If the company doesn’t plan on a hefty mid year bonus, then safe to say the employees do not receive the trickle of the profits the company generated.

      • Tommy

        Well, again, if money is reinvested into a company for, for instance, expansion of the business, that means more jobs are created. A large part is generally going to go to the owners, but it doesn’t all go to them.

        Essentially, there really is no simple answer to this.

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        I understand you.

        that’s why my first post was:

        “If the article above is true, would that mean that the last 3 years of GMA and the first 3 years of PNoy tells me that the rich got richer?”

        Again, thanks for enlightening me.

      • Tommy

        No worries!

    • Pulokoy

      they are richer because they know how to work … it is not the fault of the rich

      • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

        If that was absolute, then all is good.

        Some rich employers take advantage of the poor (who are willing to work) in ways like contractualization and other unfair labor activities.

        Take for instance PNoy’s economic growth which does not reach the poor (who work). Is it fair that they work their share, but none of the benefits trickle down to them?

    What did we expect? A miracle overnight? After dictatorship and corruption of Philippine leaders do we expect the poor to rise against poverty at once? Of course it will take time for our poor to win against poverty. If one is poor ten years ago, it will take not less than fourteen years to have one child graduate from college even if elementary and secondary education is provided free by our government. Now we have a government who wants a straight path built. Maybe we should help plant good deeds or seeds along that path so we would reap a great harvest and every Filipino will have a job in the future.

  • amado angara

    you are right tra6Gpeche, the root cause of poverty in the Philippines is the higher growth rate. Unless the government use some ways in curbing out the population growth rate (implementation of RH Law, never mind the sentiments of the church), we will remain in the state of poverty and always in the bottom in the list of third world country. We should support RH Law and other systems of Family Planning. Cool. Thanks

    3 out of 5 Filipinos are dependent on agriculture – but many private land owners opted to lease their lands to multi-nationals like Del Monte, Dole and rich sugar planters due to sky-high prices of farm inputs that keep increasing every now and then.

    Many countries in southeast Asia subsidize fertilizers, hybrid seeds, etc to improve the well-being of their farmers – in great contrast to PH……..

  • jHdz

    solve the following first then you’ll get poverty a little off the grid:
    1. UNEMPLOYMENT – generate jobs
    2. ILLITERACY – provide QUALITY EDUCATION and it must be accessible to all citizens.

    DON’T pursue the money dole outs it doesn’t cure poverty.
    DON’T give CONDOMS but provide JOBS

  • josh_alexei

    Phil like Japan is not very Rich in Natural Resource as many perceived to be..it is a small country relative to its population and must rethink its policies in regards to Economics development and must not rely solely on export of labour but invest on export quality manufactured goods…Vietnam and many other countries in the Region are investing in these sectors the way China sees its economic progress..this Corruption will eventually rid of itself when Standard of living rise and the middle Class segment in society increases significantly..There will no need for the RH law or much of the law as the Citizens will be busy making and working for Good and Honest living..Am I dreaming? There is not even a need for Ms Legarda to crusade for the environment as everyone will have a stake for a clean a greener environment for himself and his children..not just Loren’s…

  • pepito gwaps

    Dahilan ng hindi pag-unlad ng Pilipinas Eversince !!!!

    Oo! Nakadepende tayo sa kakayahan ng mga lider na inihalal natin sa pwesto. Wala namang mali doon pero isa-isahin natin kung bakit ganito parin tayo kahirap..

    Ang mga botante ay tayo rin mga Pilipino pero marami sa atin ay hindi mabusisi sa pagpili na iboboto dahil sa maraming dahilan katulad ng marami sa mga kababayan natin ay hindi nakapag-aral at madaling makumbinsi dahil sa mga matamis na pangako ng mga pulitiko at minsan pa nga kung sino ang maganda, pogi at popular ay iyon na ang iboboto. O kaya ay dahil nakatanggap ng kunting tulong sa mga kandidato.

    Ito yong mga dapat pagtuunan ng pansin ng ating gobyerno kasi ito yong mga problema at balakid sa ating kaunlaran:

    Hindi maibigay ng tama ang basic needs ng mga tao katulad ng jobs, food, shelter and
    education. Kaya madami ang nagugutom kasi walang trabaho, squatters at dahil sa
    walang malalim na edukasyon so marami ang nanganganak ng hindi nagplaplano so dagdag sa kahirapan ito.

    Walang transparency sa mga spendings ng ahensya ng gobyerno.

    Kunti lang ang napaparusahan sa mga tiwali.

    Talamak ang korapsyon sa lahat ng ahensya ng gobyerno at maraming mangingikil.

    Maraming rebelde at terorista sa mga kabundukan at minsan ay bumababa sa kapatagan para maghasikng kadiliman.

    Talamak ang mga illegal firearms at explosives.

    Talamak ang smuggling, bribery, human trafficking, kidnapping, rape, murder, disappearances, private armies at drug trafficking.

    Marami sa pulitiko ay maraming mga kabit kaya kelangang mangurakot para panustos sa bisyo.

    Maraming utak wang wang….si heneral at si colonel ay pwedeng sumakay ng libre sa bus at tumuma ng libre at mambabae ng libre sa Pegasus at ganon din si Congressman ..

    Too much Bureaucracy

    Dahil sa mga nabanggit ko yong mga multinational companies katulad ng American based company na Intel, Foxconn ( I-phone maker) at marami pang iba ay mas piniling mamuhunan sa karatig bansa natin na sana ay maraming mabibigyan ng trabaho sa ating mga kababayan.

    Pati yong mga mahuhusay nating mga kababayang proffesionals ay ninais na magmigrate sa Canada, US at Europe ( brain drain)at ganon din yong mga OFWs ayaw ng umuwi dahil magugutom lang pamilya nila pag sila ay umuwi dito.

    So ano kelangan natin para mabago lahat to. Kelangan natin tanggapin sa mga sarili
    natin na ang democracy natin sa Asia ay hindi kelan man magagaya sa democracy
    ng US dahil iba ang ugali at kultura nila kesa sa atin. Dito kasi sa atin kapag me laya ang mga tao ay umaabuso pero doon marami ang me initiative na sumunod kahit walang nakakakita. Hindi natin kelangang sundan mga apak nila so kelangan nating maghigpit at mag-invent ng mga batas na aakma sa atin para sa pag-unlad ng bayan.

    Kelangan natin na mga leaders na magpapahalaga sa education at livelihood. Dahil sa
    education marami ang tatalinong mga Pilipino at hindi na silang magiging bobong
    botante hindi katulad ngayon at kung maraming sources of livelihood ay maraming pamilya ang makakain ng tama sa oras at maiiwasan ang mga taong matuksong gumawa ng illegal.

    Suportahan ang mga small medium entrepreneurs para sila ay mas lalong lumago at lumaki. Dapat pautangin sila ang gobyerno at ganon din yong mga farmers kelangan silang tulungan.

    Kailangan natin ng leader na malinis at me dangal na magbibigay solusyon sa kriminalidad, rampant corruption at sa mga rebelde at terorista ng lipunan. Alam nya kung paano matutulungan ng mga rich at middle class Filipino ang mga mahihirap. Transparent government and clean governance ang dapat iprioridad nya. Kapag nasugpo natin itong mga balakid sa kaunlaran ay sigurado magkakaroon tayo ng “zero” corruption at long lasting peace and order sa buong bansa natin.

    Ito yong panahon na dadami ang mga investors at mga turista sa ating bansa. Mas dadami ang may trabaho kesa sa mga wala. Kapa naibsan na ang poverty natin ay wala ng magrerebelde o kaya aalis ng bansa natin para guminhawa. Mas uunlad pa ating ekonomiya at mapapagtuunan ng pansin ang mga bagay na ikabubuti ng mga Filipino tulad ng healthcare,housing, loans, surplus sharing and huge retirement benefits sa mga matatanda… Sana mangyari lahat to….Goodluck to all

      At saka sa ating mga mamamayan, matuto na rin tayong magmalasakit sa mga mahihirap at wag silang iwasan..bagkus, hikayatin na gamitin ang kani-kanilang lakas upang makabuo ng hakbangin para sa sarili nilang kapakanan. Huwag nang umasa sa mabagal na makinarya ng pamahalaan sa ngayon.
      Sa ating pagbubuklod-buklod, magkakaroon din ng pagkakaisa at pagtutulungan. Alam ko rin na may taglay na talino at kabutihan ang bawat sa atin.

      • pepito gwaps

        Frudo, alam ko kaya natanong mo yan kasi marami rin nagtatanong nyan at hindi alam i-materialize at kung saan magsisimula. Sa totoo lang kaya hindi maikasatuparan ang mga mithiin natin ay dahil maraming balakid. Kaya nga kelangang palakasin ang edukasyon at ayusin muna natin ang simpleng mga bagay, mga basic needs ng tao tulad ng trabaho, pagkain, shelter, gamot at edukasyon.( kelangan alagaan at proteksyunan tayo ng gobyerno natin kasi tayo ang foundation ng lipunan at sa atin din mangagaling ang solusyon sa mga problema natin).

        Sa point of view ko kelangan mo muna malaman ang problem source bago masulosyunan ang anumang problema. Sa itaas nabanggit ko na yong mga balakid at problema na halos minana pa natin sa mga magulang natin so ngayon andito na uli tayo sa tanong mo “paano?” masusulosyunan itong mga to.

        Kaya nga sinabi ko na hindi kayang bigyan ng solusyon ang mga problema natin by mere electing leaders only but in my analysis it can be solved by electing quality and transparent leaders which is malabong mangyari dahil hindi ganon ka-educated ang mga majority ng mga botante natin so education is the key to make a strong and progressive republic of the Phillippines.

        Bakit ko nasabi na kelangan natin ng “quality at transparent leader” para masugpo ang mga balakid at problema natin….. kasi po hindi basta basta ang kalaban natin para maikasatuparan ang ating mga mithiin. He must beat all the odds. He must beat the bad middle class and the rich who make us suffer for the very long time. He must beat those who violate the laws. He must silenced down those who influenced us to commit mistakes. He must beat those bloodsuckers and crocodiles adhering in our system from time memorial. He should be transparent also to gain support from the people so we can beat them all. Ito talaga ang dahilan kaya hindi tayo umuunlad kasi lahat ng leader na iniuupo natin ay parang tupang nilulunod ng kumunoy ng kasamaan.

        Sa ngayon sorry to say we don’t have a chance but to follow the system but I’ll tell you once the Filipino people become more educated and matured enough to select the right leader that’s the time a new and quality leader will emerge and lead us out from poverty. He will settle the problem sources of this country and for sure he can silence those cunning men roaming around our society.

        Just wait…Coming soon…..

How many corrupt government officials benefited from this program? how come poverty incidence wasn’t reduce inspite of the humongous amount of money poured into CCT? It’s eating up our national budget and our debt is balooning because of CCT and yet there’s no substantial result obtained from such doleout program?

  • TheHopefulPessimist

    Perhaps this government should have a comprehensive program directly targeted at the poor. It should not just hope for a trickle down effect. There must be a program that will identify issues and steps to take to help a typical poor family (e.g. those living in shanties) get out of poverty.

    For instance, it’s possible that most of these people did not get an opportunity to an education. They probably won’t qualify for most of the jobs out there. Perhaps the government should provide free training (with stipend) that will eventually lead to a job at the end of it. They should also ensure that children get proper education so the next generation do not end up like the previous one. These people don’t have the necessary resources to get themselves out of poverty on their own. They need help to break the vicious cycle of poverty!

    I know my example above sounds vague but my point is that there should be a determined, well defined and focused program for the poor. Don’t wait for a trickle down effect which may not at all happen.

    • crazy_horse_101010

  • Descarte5E

    We should be looking at the correct Economic Performance Indicators to really see whether we are progressing as a country. Instead of misleading GNP, stock index, foreign exchange rate, etc., government should monitor and report more regularly on Unemployment/Underemployment, peace and order/crime rate, average family income or per capita GDP/GNP and yes poverty incidence. Does the minimum wage meet the living wage? The whole of India were up in arms about the case of child gang-rape, in Philippines it’s almost a regular headline in the tabloids and worst, it’s father raping daughter. How many Filipinos are killed everymonth or everyday by robbers, hired killers, in meaningless squabbles, drug related crimes, etc., How many Filipinos turned to being tricycle drivers because there are more decent jobs for them?

    Unless the pork barrel is removed, Philippines will never improve. Pork barrel create more dynasty and feudal lords and vultures. Legislators wants people to remain poor that they will be at their mercy, their slaves. Politicians run for office not serve the country or the people but to enrich themselves. Name a politician who does not own a property in the US or elsewhere outside of the Philippines. Why? Because when they are done looting the country, they will move abroad, and those are all from taxpayers money.

    Pano ba naman mas madaming pinoy na sa pinas kaysa 6yrs ago, the pace of development cannot cope with the rising population its just not enough we need to curve the population explosion to make it move.

    Create jobs to eradicate poverty. That’s what the those economic advisers/analysts always say. Resolving it is a gargantuan task on the shoulders of the government. PH is a free and democratic nation where everyone is blessed to go after his/her dreams. Poverty, to me, is rooted in ones willingness to uplift his/her own life. The climate of success or the opportunity to uplift one’s life in PH is right before the eyes of everyone. However, the path to success is narrow and requires self-sacrifice. Without self-sacrifice and commitment, losers become poor and winners are rich.

  • calipso_2100

    I think many of the poor people themselves are to blame. They’ve got unbelievable thinking that it is ONLY the government’s or other people’s job to get them out of poverty, not their’s.

    Here’s an example. A certain community in our city which lives in a dumpsite area was affected by a typhoon. Their drainage was affected. I don’t know in what way and how much but they did nothing… for months. They just waited for the government to do something. Some of them are carpenters, masons and plumbers while some are istambays but they didn’t even care fixing their drainage problem. Yet during their annual fiesta, they spend for some gatherings like miss gay, mr. pogi, basketball league etc.

    This election season, these very same people in the community are on a frenzy supporting candidates who make outrageous promises and offer them ‘help’. Help, meaning vote buying. These people are even over 40, 50 years old. They have certainly already gone through a number of elections their whole lives but they still don’t seem to know that politicians are just using them.

    Even though these people get help, I don’t think they’ll get out of poverty. They don’t help themselves.

    We can confirm that corruption in national level had almost been wiped out due to the good governance of PNOY.

    But local politicians confirmed that corruption in local level is still
    rampant or even a bit higher compared to Marcos administration.

    I think what PNOY should do is to enforce the justice and show to the local politicians that public governance is not anymore a route to get rich in the Philippines.

    The only good thing that is happening in the Philippines right now is SM Malls, San Miguel Beer and Tourism. These three phenomena are linked to the remittances given by the 10Million strong OFWs and immigrants in western countries. When the money arrives, the families go to SM Mall to buy grocery and food. They drink beer to be merry. They have extra money to go to beaches. They don’t need to work because the money comes every month, so there is time to go to places in the Philippines for tourism to grow.

    The nightmare that would come in 10 years time is that the immigrants in the US, Canada and Australia will start to wane down remitting money. Because the 2nd generation Filipinos will be naturalized citizens and will have no more roots to send money back to Philippines.

    The second nightmare is the OFW in MidEast. If we start reducing our population due to RH Bill, our population will go down. This will lead to lesser pool of skilled workers.

    There was a study in Cambridge that economies of migrant workers will wane down in the future because of the stated facts above.

    More Jobs Please

    With the recent turn of events and thrusts of different countries about giving priority to employing their own people instead of hiring foreigners make sense to me. Saudi has already embarked on the “Saudization”, the national policy of Saudi Arabia to encourage employment of Saudi nationals in the private sector. Singapore has started this a long time ago, by also limiting “permanent residents” in their own country who would inevitably “share with the pie” that is intended for their own people. Perhaps, other countries would likely to follow suit, which is of course a
    practical thing to do and would be beneficial to them.

    Now, here is the question. Are we really ready for this imminent trend? How many people will be displaced if other countries start to limit or at worst, totally ban employing foreign workers? What are the contingency plans of our government knowing that our country is so dependent on the foreign remittance being brought by our OFWs? How would this affect our dollar reserve and the image that the current government brandish that our economy has become stronger than before? If the economy is strong, why there are no jobs available? Are we lying through our teeth?

    These are the issues that our government must be seriously considering now by
    preparing for the worst-case scenario and at the same time negotiating for some
    diplomatic considerations on employing the Filipinos. Most likely, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will not vacillate on this “Saudization”, because they have their own concerns in providing long term employment for their own people. The aging population of Singapore might accommodate us; but if the growing number of young Singaporeans will express their reservation on this, then the Singaporean government will likely favor their own people over other foreign workers like Filipinos no matter how good and competent we are. It already happened before during 2009-2011, wherein Singapore gives more priority to their citizens than foreign workers. That is also the reason why they suddenly cease or rarely approve permanent resident applications in 2010 henceforth.

    Unlike Canada and US, the Philippines doesn’t have what they call EI (Employment
    Insurance) in Canada and UI (Unemployment Insurance) in the US, wherein the
    government provides temporary financial assistance for permanent residents and
    citizens while they look for work or upgrade their skills. This insurance is given when the individual lost their job through no fault of their own such as due to shortage of work, seasonal layoffs, or mass layoffs and when they are really available for and able to work, but can’t find a job. Sure there is the OWWA (Overseas Workers Welfare Administration) who will again tell in their press releases that they will be there to the rescue. OWWA is really supposed to assist the displaced or unemployed OFWs, but in my past experience in helping some OFWs especially the seafarers (to prepare a business plan for them), they made it so hard for the displaced OFWs before they will be given a loan. For a meager loan of Fifty Thousand Pesos capital in a small barbecue kiosk that a seafarer wanted to start, he was being required to come up with a business plan that is almost like a thesis requirement or format. Maybe they even wanted it to be prepared in “Turibian format” or “APA” (American
    Psychological Association). These are the formats in writing a thesis during my
    time in college and graduate school.

    The government should start planning both a short term and long term plans to create more jobs in our own native land. It is so embarrassing to continue to
    exploit our workers while benefitting from their remittance that continues to
    feed our starving economy. Now that our economy is getting better as we
    brandish, it is high time that the government starts creating more jobs. We got
    a lot of think tanks and consultants being hired by the government. Don’t we
    think it’s time for us to squeeze their brains and share their ideas how we can
    create jobs? We can never ever count to the empty promises of our politicians
    that they will create jobs across the country. Maybe in the local level, that is more possible. Looking back so many of them have made the same promise of creating more jobs when they get elected. But if we are not suffering from amnesia, we will realize that nothing on the job generation laws were ever made by the same people courting our voters to vote for them. Instead, they continue to amass wealth during their term and now wanted to continue by fielding their children or spouse.

    If they are really serious about creating jobs, here are some of my suggestions:

    1) In Danao, Cebu why not the government pour in some money and make the
    illegal gun cottage industry into a giant manufacturing factory so we can fully
    utilize their talents and at the same time create long term employment and
    export our products. Why do we have to import millions of pesos in guns and
    ammos when we have talented gunsmiths around Cebu?
    2) In Bocaue, Bulacan, fund all the firecracker makers by creating a facility that is safe, advance and compliant to all hazards. By doing this, we create barriers to entry for firecrackers being imported from China and just branded as Philippine made.
    3) In Bicol and Quezon provinces, create a facility that will make their copra business grow in coordination with DOST, DTI and Philippine Coconut Authority.
    4) In Ilocos region, support the weaving and tobacco industries by providing
    funding and technical assistance and marketing arm in exporting their products.
    5) Tawi-tawi, Zamboanga and Sulu, support the seaweed farmers there by
    providing the right technology and equipment for their seaweed harvests. Let the Department of Agriculture support them instead of diverting their funds to unknown and dubious companies either owned by some politicians or owned by their relatives. DA has a lot of money to burn and yet the growth in our agricultural products remains unseen or felt.

    There are so many things our government can do in creating jobs, long-term jobs
    at that. But it seems that the government would prefer to export our labor so that the influx of our dollar remittance will continue. Doesn’t sound fair. It sounds more like “utilitarianism” to me. For how long will we be depending on labor export? What is the government’s short term and long term plan to generate more jobs?

    The Filipinos want to know the government’s gameplan on the inevitable rise in
    unemployment, not tomorrow but today. Remember, we are your BOSS!!!

  • Paulstronghold

    It’s decades old problem of this country. Complex issue cannot be solved swiftly as most unemployed would want to. Just want to cite few reasons. There lies issue on competence for example. While old and new companies might offer new job opportunities, the level of expertise needed to fill in new vacancies is far below expectation. Hence, specialization is the name of the game. Another critical factor is the several college courses that is no longer suited to the demand of the existing business industry. Hardly, these companies can translate some overcrowded courses into job opportunities. Some nursing graduates for instance, end up in call centers. Education graduates as domestic helpers in Middle East.
    Another factor is the excessive pattern of white collar jobs versus the blue-collar in which most of our Asian conterparts are not noted for. Mahilig ang pinoy sa naka aircon na trabaho, kadalasan ayaw madumihan ang kamay. Most industrialized countries have zeroed in on technical courses to run their industries – examples are Japan, Korea, China and even Vietnam.
    As long as we don’t change our paradigm belief on the right human development program that would fit in to the demand of the times, it becomes vicious cycle thus, it becomes merely a stamp-pad no matter how record breaking stock exchange we achieved lately. Foremost of course, are the local and national leaders who can spearhead job creations using portions of their pork barrels forging with private companies to open-up opportunities.

No one can foretell the future with certainty, but every one and any one can make assumptions and presumptions on what he construes tomorrow holds for him. Hindi dapat nagpapaniwala ng basta-basta sa kahit na kanino sa kahit na ano na wala namang pagpapatunay kundi ang mga kwento’t pagpapapalad ng iba ayon sa kwento at pagpapalahad din ng iba pa. In other words, HEARSAY.

    Comparison- Philippines and Japan after WW2.

    The Americans made a genuine land reform in Japan.
    The Americans did not do this in the Philippines– they granted large tracts of lands to lucky Filipino mestizos to become sugar plantations , coconut plantations. After all, we were just exchanged for Cuba when Spain lost the war with the U.S.

    In Japan, those that had real property were the first customers of the then Toyota (producing lousy Toyopet cars), or Sony producing the transistor radios. In other words, industry in Japan started with a domestic market , because its people had the basic foundation– a property of their own.
    So these industries grew, and they provided decent jobs to its citizens as their standards of living became higher and higher.

    In the Philippines, the jobs that are created due to the construction boom are temporary in nature.

    Since our people go abroad , the hope of having their own house and lot becomes possible, and our few “industrialists” take this opportunity.

    Making money in real estate is much easier than making money in industry and agriculture.
    that is where we are.

    40 families were responsible for 76% of the gdp growth last year.

    Now, how to redistribute wealth is the nagging question.

    CNN already predicted this. All the economic policies are effective, but only affect the middle class and above. The poor stay poor, that’s why we need the RH Law. Family planning allows poor families to have kids in school, while poor mothers can be employed instead of being pregnant every year. Education and employment for the poor will be heavily affected by the RH LAW. Sadly, we have narrow-minded politicians who listen to the most narrow-minded creatures in the planet, aka the CBCP.

  • Mazza02

    This article raises is evidence of lack of understanding of economics and policy. It is well known that economic policies have time lags in years, specially fiscal policies that aim to combat poverty. The results of any reforms wont be felt for years. What this current government has done and continues to do is to set the framework and building blocks that will lead to economic growth for the long term. It took China over 20 years before it even got noticed as growing let alone felt by its people and its a communist country where there are no opposition hindering policies and no legacy of institutional weaknesses that lead to rent seeking elites and corruption inherited from our two colonisers and middle men minorities.

    There’s no such thing as poverty. There is no poor in this world.
    We are all equal, rich and poor alike.
    It is only in our mind, our discriminating mind that there are poor.
    We think we are better than others because we have something others don’t have.
    We are only jealous and superior.

    Look at the pigs, the animals, they don’t care whether a pig is white, clothe, bathe in a piggery farm while others are scavenging in garbage.
    Dogs don’t care if one is one lives in a mansion while the other is askal.
    They don’t mind, they don’t care.

    We, humans are only arrogant, boastful about materials things but just the same, we emit foully smelly odor during call of nature.

      The simple fault here is that the world economy is purposely put in a down spiral. The currency is being devalued to achieve this goal. The prices of commodities didn’t “go up.” Its just that the dollar went down by 50%. Oil is still $50 a barrel but with the dollar being worth half of what it used to be the oil looks like $100+ per barrel. Who is doing this? Foreign globalist eugenicist bankers who control the very same international “institutions” like the United Nations, The CFR, IMF, WB. We think we are global community of realized beings, when in fact these globalist controllers look at most of humanity like ‘crop,” as animals. They treat us that way too with tainted food and pharmaceuticals that they themselves wont eat, take or drink. This economy dismantling is part of Agenda 21, the “sustainable development” kuno plan introduced by the United Nations and forced down Filipino throats through the hands of Fidel Ramos in 1997 with his executive order PA21. This is a real plot to put the world in chaos so they can unleash World War THREE to reduce the population of the planet by 6.5 billion. So money is the least of these TRILLIONAIRES’ problems, as they own the mint that prints the dollars at will with zero gold backing, In fact a Chinese woman Liu Hua is suing the Federal Reserve for deflating the value of the dollar all because they over printed bills. See how this works? The Agenda 21 plan is to surreptitiously confiscate all land and natural resources on the planet to where the globalists controlling the planet turn the planet into their own dominion with the human race dwindled to a manageable ratio of slaves.This is not metaphoric. This is real. OBLIVION is the plan. So going through your debit/credit statements and GIR, GNP charts doesn’t add up to the proverbial hill of beans with these people who actually control the economy like a yo-yo, planning NEW WORLD ORDER.

    PNoy administration is marked with obvious evidence of failure in protecting the proprietary rights of professionals to practice their profession, especially real estate service professionals. Despite the legislation of Real Estate Service Act of 2009, the PRC’s failure to answer official letter of IPORESP on law-enforcement onset date is an evidence that PNoy Administration still tolerates real estate developers who employ the services of the colorum (unlicensed). PRC is like a slaughterhouse of the law-fearing real estate practitioners. PNoy Administration kills the licensed real estate professionals and drive them down to poverty.

    If the corrupt practices of public officials are scrapped completely, how sure are we that these would redound for the benefits of the people, especially the poor who have suffered for so long? But for as long as the lawmakers’ pork barrel funds remain, there can be no assurance that public funds won’t be misused to satisfy the personal interests of some lawmakers around.

    On one hand….this is good news, poverty unchanged.
    At least Pnoy gov’t makes poverty remained as it is, no up, no down.
