    Problem dito sa pinas is the poor are getting procreating like rabbits. Too many people with not enough jobs also causes little money to go around. Another thing is we lack capital. Our country cannot draw on foreign investments, reasons that are too much to mention. Not enough investment results in not enough jobs.

    Poor?? Yeh we are poor. Compare mo naman tayo sa ibang countries, sa atin, tingin natin "sosi" na tayo pero kung sa ibang countries yan, common na sa kanila yan. Pero sometimes, I ask that question to my self, poor nga ba tayo?

    Yes we are poor. Its like for example your neighbor that dresses well, has a great car, nice house, etc. Pero technically he is in debt, running away from creditors, does not have an honest living, etc.

    We look rich pero we are deep inside poor. What is visible the first time may not be what is true. I see a lot of place here wherein in the left side of the read, big houses, etc. right side are poor housing, can't even classify it as a house. Its likely that on this stretch of the road, there are 10 rich people in the left side, while the poor people in the right side number in the hundreds. So if you count them as a whole we are poor.

    well, if you look around and see evidence of wealth, it could be just an illusion. in this country, image is really important, and perhaps many spend and spend but have little savings, for example... just a possibility

    We are poor becauise the Filipinos in general lacks the wealth of Education. Bigyan mo ng P1million bawat Pilipino, walang mangyayari dahil hindi nila alam kung pano gamitin ang pera. So the rich gets richer, the poor gets richer. Isa pa, ang mga mayayaman lang ang nakakautang kasi alam ng creditor gagamitin ang perang inutang para dumami pa ito.
