"It would be desirable to open the media to foreign ownership. This would provide competition to the domestic press in the reporting of events about the country. It would help to elevate the content of economic and social discourse. The presence of a foreign media would provide the Philippines an additional window to the world and of the world to the country. Perhaps it would encourage a more responsible discourse in the conduct of economic policy. It would also link the country more to the external world."

Rules of Thumb

Presidential Systems are known to be problematic, unstable, and focus mostly on personality politics and popularity. Parliamentary Systems, on average, tend to perform better. Try comparing the top 30 countries according to any performance index, be it GDP per capita, Corruption Perceptions Index (Least Corrupt on top), Human Development Index, Global Competitiveness, etc, the results when compared against the bottom 30 countries are generally consistent. The majority of the top 30 in those rankings have Parliamentary Systems, while the majority of the bottom 30 have Presidential or strong Semi-Presidential Systems.
