Reverent and irreverent sites on the Philippine economy are on the links here under Philippine economy blogs. I have found very little in the mainstream media that regularly looks at the Philippine economy, other than Cielito Habito. But I will update the list as I go along.
The Philippines was once said to have a soft-drink and beer economy (that was in the 1950s). Today it may have become a copper and wireless economy. Tomorrow it may be an ecotourist trap and retirement haven!
I also give a primer and comment on the effects of the global financial crisis (how to firewall the economy, and some stimulus arithmetic and the Keynesian multiplier). I’ve tried to analyze the effect on OFW remittances. In the end, the best stimulus is simple: cut taxes.
You can find here a Biblical solution to the land reform problem in the Philippines.
