News reports on the global and Philippine economies continue to present uncertainties. One report says that “the world economy may not emerge out of crisis in 2010 due to ‘bubbles’ created by the huge injections of money used to keep the financial system operating.” That’s a quote from World Trade Organization (WTO) chief Pascal Lamy.


Indeed, “governments around the world have spent trillions of dollars over the past 18 months avoiding the collapse of the financial system and then trying to claw away from recession.”


In the Philippines, Fitch Ratings warns that the budget shortfall could swell to as high as P320 billion this year and that a sharp growth in public debt may result in a downgrade for the Philippines.


Faced with these financial uncertainties, what can you do to still achieve kaunlaran or economic progress this year and beyond?
