    re weak peso = higher cost of imports

    importers can either maintain prices and see their profit margin shrink or raise prices to maintain margin

    if importers raise prices too much their sales could decline

    customers have a limit to how much they'll pay

    for importers this is the situation now

    I don't think we can attract more investors if the president is demanding a selfie with God.

    Oh well, except for the communists.

    A good and lengthy read. I'd rather see historical data specifically 2008.

    ^^^

    i read the whole thing

    i agree that this inflation we're experiencing now is caused by the supply side (rising oil and other commodities prices)

    but but but

    i still think there's too much liquidity

    MONEY SUPPLY grew faster in May even as growth in bank lending eased, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) announced Friday.

    More money circulated in the Philippine economy as supply rose by 14.3% from a year ago, a tad faster than the 14.2% logged in April to log the quickest pace in two months.

    Domestic liquidity or M3, which stands as the broadest measure of money in an economy, amounted to P11 trillion as of end-May. Month on month, money supply went up by 1.3%.

    prices go up when you have too much money chasing limited supply of goods
