And I’d like to know what the administration and opposition have to say aboutMoral lesson? To all bloggers out there, just keep on ranting. You might yet get an ear or two and, who knows, you may even change the world for the better. Or worse.
David Llorito’s belief that the administration has been too busy playing “whack-a-mole,” that is, stamping out scandals of its own making, to really attend to what it claims it has been doing all along -- forgoing politics and focusing on the economy. As
Llorito puts it, “We could have achieved some more, probably on a par with our
fast-growing neighbors, if only the government had been really attentive to the
pulse of the economy.”
By way of proving his point, Llorito wrote that as far as the administration claim of an improved economy, “these are real gains, alright, but in truth Malacañang has little to do with it at all. A look at the national income accounts shows the country’s growth was largely driven by consumption financed by remittances, the rapid growth of cyberservices and the recovery in the export sector. The dynamics of these growth drivers have nothing to do with Palace occupants.”
