A crisis of ambiguity: political and economic development in the Philippines

Front Cover
Analysis indicates that among the less-developed countries, the Philippines is not a nation in a general massive social crisis. Classical metaphors about the polity and economy of less-developed countries are misleading when applied to the Philippine experience. The country has a stable democracy, has a modernizing economy growing at a real rate of 6 percent, and does not appear particularly susceptible to revolution from either the right or the left. None of this means, however, that the country is performing spectacularly or that it has no problems. However, appropriate, specific policy responses will depend on a much closer articulation of information systems with decisionmaking. (Author).
