Why? Because the basic core of the problem in the Philippine is this: Filipinos, as a nation, do NOT want to improve. In fact, most of them don't even comprehend what it is to improve.
It's a bit like trying to cure an alcoholic. You can only cure them if THEY decide they WANT to change. Filipinos don't want to change. As irrational as it might sound to westerners, Filipinos are happy being poor, dishonest, corrupt, totally selfish, uncaring, inconsiderate, lazy, and a long list of negatives.
There is no hope for the Philippines. And the only reason is because Filipinos don't want anything different.
Sure, there's the small (10%) of Filipinos who decide to actually do some work and become OFW's, but the remainder of the population is happier to be poor and shiftless.
I am convinced that there is no hope for the Philippines. It can never improve. Improvement is not something most Filipinos even comprehend or care about. Yeah, they want money, but not if it takes any effort or self discipline to obtain it.
