Summary

Summary

Philippine observers are often baffled by the economic and political turmoil that dominates headlines about the country. Yet, at the same time, the Philippines continues to hold the potential for successfully combining political freedoms with sustained economic growth and, thus, improving the lives of its people.In this book, a team of distinguished scholars examines these seemingly contradictory trends in order to gain a sense of the country's prospects.
