May 12, 2016

DEMAND AND SUPPLY by Boo Chanco (The Philippine Star) May 11, 2016   I guess my decision to take a break during the week before election was a good one. It gave me a perspective that would not have been possible from the frontlines of the campaign battles. For one, it made me appreciate a […]

What sort of president?

May 10, 2016

LIKE IT IS by Peter Wallace (Philippine Daily Inquirer) May 5, 2016   Last week I said, if the polls are to be believed, Rodrigo Duterte will be the next president of the Philippines.
