Description

This book examines all major facets of the Philippine economy and development policy. Contributors to this volume look both to the past and to the future, and their approaches are variously descriptive, analytical, interpretive , and comparative. The book assesses trends since the 1980s, identifies major policy issues, and provides a balance sheet of achievements and deficiencies over the past decade and beyond. It highlights future challenges that need to be addressed if the country is to embark on a sustainable, durable, and equitable growth trajectory. The book also offers lessons from the country's development experience which may be relevant for many countries at the present time. The volume has particular relevance for the country's policymakers, academics and the business community, and will also appeal to a broader international audience.show more

This is a comprehensive book on the Philippine economy. It is authoritatively written and highly relevant for policymakers. The contributors are distinguished specialists in the field. It is encouraging to note that the development constraints and challenges facing the country, through seemingly daunting, are not insurmountable. The writers point out fundamental lessons for recovering lost ground. Current and future leaders of the Philippines, and other observers of the body politic, are well advised to read this book. * Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, President of the Philippines *show more
