#Filipinos too focused on demanding admiration rather than earning it


The Philippine economy is living on borrowed time. We must use this time and opportunity to research or "steal" new technologies similar to what Germany did to overconfident Britain during the empire era.

But the Filipino people and the government are too busy crying for respect and admiration instead of working hard to be superior or same level with the top.

The economy will fail when richer countries could no longer afford to give simple jobs to Third Worlders.
