Useful random quotes

"The effect of these restrictions and their reality in application took away the incentives for existing foreign investors to improve on their public utility services. They had to divest in due time and their actions were mainly designed to make a sellout of their interests. During the 1960s and the early 1970s, the divestments took place – they were in electricity service, in transportation companies [land and shipping], in telephone and communications. Water and sewerage then was a public function and was not held by foreign investments but was a service that the public works department provided."

Rules of Thumb

Don't ever believe that myth that Federalism will worsen warlords and dynasties. It's a lie that the Monsod couple - Christian and Winnie - invented and propagated on their TV appearances and their newspaper articles which they have repeated over and over again in order to brainwash Filipinos who don't know any better. But look at Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Switzerland, and many other countries that use Federalism. Do you see them dominated by warlords and dynasties? No. In the case of Malaysia, the old traditional dynasties have been relegated to mostly ceremonial positions as Sultans who rotate amongst themselves to become the Federal King.
