The current level of PH population is already too much for a limited resources. Yes it is an asset by virtue, but the PH government don't know how to make use of this growing asset.

Among those list posted, only Japan and US are developed.
The RH law already past and is implemented. There is free birth control/condoms for all and mandatory sex education starting in the 5th grade

i'd like to point out though that your 'lagging' point is very incorrect. as a trader, i have to follow the economic news a lot. and no, they are not lagging. they may be still behind those two countries you mentioned but they are catching up, not lagging.

TBH, it looks like your assessment is 3-4 years old. it's either you are lagging behind what's happening or you always fail to grasp some really important points in news, surveys, data releases, etc.

i do not mean to offend you. i am an advocate of the 'you are entitled to your views' drama; but I also despise misinformation.
Hope your point is right when it comes to "catching up", Indonesia was the poorest nation after its independence and we managed to grow until today despite all the corruption, and officially suprassed the Philippines this year as the improvement in HDI shows. That's one thing to be appreciated off from this country, development used to be just limited to Jakarta and to an extend Java and Bali only, but that's starting to change. A good thing considering the sentiment of the other islanders because of this issue, i can't blame either of them.

With the dropping fertility rates around the world, these old-fashioned countries with the higher fertility rates will come in "handy" some day for a ready supply of labor to be exported.

I was surprised to read that Thailand has become another victim of the low fertility rate, now looking next door to Cambodia for immigrants.

they are resources but they also consume a lot of resources..which the Philippines doesn't have.


our farms maybe more productive than those of Vietnam and Thailand but we don't have a lot of farms..thats why we need to import rice


just consider classrooms..every year the govt has to appropriate additional classrooms because the population keep on growing..now if only the population stop growing, that budget for classrooms could be used to raised the salaries of teachers to raised the standard of education etc etc
