Sampaguita vendor, scavenger, prostitute—these are among the young lives trying conquer the bleakest of circumstances
WHAT COMES to your mind when an urchin knocks on your car window, urging you to buy the last few sampaguita garlands so he or she can go home?

Here’s why Filipinos should be worried- Robin Broad, John Cavanagh:
***WE CAME to the Philippines in July from the battered US economy where unemployment has been at 10 percent for a year, and over 8 million workers have lost their jobs since the crisis hit in 2008. Millions of young adults leaving college are not finding jobs. As the ranks of the jobless rise, millions of people have lost their medical insurance and their homes. Desperation is spreading and fueling Right-wing activism in the form of Sarah Palin’s anti-government tea party demonstrations.

We came to the Philippines with an intense curiosity over how this crisis was affecting the Philippine economy. In dozens of interviews with Filipinos from all walks of life, we encountered some concerns about the economy, but a widespread sense of complacency.
Don’t get us wrong: we applaud the new administration’s war on corruption and its exposés of the abuses of the Arroyo administration. But, let us share what makes us nervous about the current path of the Philippine economy in the midst of a shaky global economic environment.

After centuries of gearing the Philippine economy toward the greed of its colonial masters, and three decades of speeding up Philippine integration into the global economy, the Philippine economy remains vulnerable to the vagaries of global events.

There are four sources of foreign exchange in the Philippines of over $5 billion a year, all of which are marked by vulnerability.

The top foreign exchange earner is electronic exports, which reaped as much as $28 billion in earnings in 2008 and accounts for over half of overall Philippine export earnings.
