First Impressions: A Country Imperiled by Cecilio Arillo
I just got a copy of the book “A Country Imperiled” by
Cecilio Arillo. These are my first impressions of it :
Marcos was a victim of false propaganda branding him a
dictator. Marcos was no dictator.
What imperils the country: IMF-WB free trade policies that
drive countries poor.
IMF-WB is a tool of American imperialism.
Aquinos are an IMF-WB tool.
Neoclassical economics and laissez-faire capitalism are
stupid, while mercantilism is better.
Marcos defended the Philippines against IMF-WB impositions
on the Philippines.
IMF-WB and the US thus sponsored movements to oust him.
Current Filipino problems owe in a large part to the influence of
the IMF-WB, and even the ADB.
March 18, 2012 Addendum:
The CBCP is disobeying the Vatican by participating in political issues in order to protect its shares in local businesses.
With these claims by someone like Arillo, I can more
appreciate where the nationalists and anti-Americans are coming from. Though I
would like to find common ground between them and my other views.
