Proposed auto excise-tax rates

In the news recently was the occupation of some families from Metro Manila and parts of Bulacan province, of some 4,000 houses from five government housing projects in Pandi town and the City of San Jose del Monte.

This is an established and important discipline in all branches of manufacturing.

After the disastrous coup attempt of December 1989, a frustrated President Cory asked a small group for solutions. At that time, I was helping out one of my bosses in the private sector, who had transitioned into government as head of the Coordinating Council for Philippine Assistance Program (CCPAP). I got a call from a close friend, a relative of the sitting president, and got assigned to write a paper on the problem.

Private Money for P9-Trillion Infrastructure?

Globally, the trend is ominous. Trillions are needed to build or rebuild infrastructure in countries like America, Canada and the EU. But more and more, these countries are realizing that public funds will fall short -and at full risk of excessive sovereign debt. Permutations are readied to invite private money to come in as equity and debt components of infrastructure projects ,sometimes with national government/LGUs/private investors in tandem.
