Competitive Capitalism at work!

Appreciation of the PHP create profit headache for Filipino exporters and manufacturers. Clearances and fees add to the cost of doing business to exporters and importers alike. Removing or paring down these fees and charges is good for us consumers, exporters, importers and manufacturers alike. It should be for all export and import transactions. Exporters and manufacturers benefited the depreciation fo PHP from P40 in 2000 to its lowest of P56.

The Light of the World

The story of the United States is the story of an economic miracle and a political miracle that was made possible by the translation into practice of two sets of ideas - both, by a curious coincidence, formulated in documents published in the same year, 1776.
One set of ideas was embodied in The Wealth of Nations, the masterpiece that established the Scotsman Adam Smith as the father of modern economics.
The second set of ideas was embodied in the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson to express the general sense of his fellow countrymen.

Brainstorming for Illegal Immigration

The Parable of the Lamp
"No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away." Luke 8:16-18
United States of America's light is set on a lampstand, visible to everyone in the world, friend and foe alike. America's light are independence, self-reliance and faith in God. America's light of independence, self-reliance and faith in God lead to economic freedom, political freedom and religious freedom. America's light of economic freedom, political freedom and religious freedom lead to successful application and implementation of the philosophy of Adam Smith encoded in The Wealth of Nations and the Constitution of the United States of America for the last two centuries.
Apply the philosophy of Adam Smith encoded in The Wealth of Nations and United States Constitution in regards to immigration.
