Philippines: Toward Sustainable and Rapid Growth (Occasional Paper (International Monetary Fund))
This Occasional Paper discusses the policies behind the favorable economic performance of the Philippines during the 1990s, when it emerged from a long period of slow growth and economic imbalances and managed to escape the "Asian crisis" relatively unscathed. The Philippines' recent experience suggests valuable lessons for emerging economies' efforts at crisis prevention and management, as well as for the country's own policy choices. This paper describes this experience, focusing on the elements behind the relatively strong performance as well as the remaining reform agenda.

Climate in Crisis: Philippines in Crisis!
Greenpeace did a tour around South East Asia to promote clean energy. During this tour Greenpeace campaigners on board of the ship MV Arctic Sunrise paid tribute to the revolutionary history of Negros as the ship arrived in Bacolod City to launch the Renewable Revolution. Greenpeace activists also hung a banner reading: "Plug into Clean Energy Now!" on the Board of Investments of the Department of Trade and Industry building in downtown Manila. Activists also gathered signatures on a petition for renewable energy. Greenpeace activists also targeted the unloading of coal at the Philippines biggest coal-fired power station, Sual, in the province of Pangasinan.

Philippine Folklore Stories
From Wikipedia, "Philippine mythology and folklore include a collection of tales and superstitions about magical creatures and entities. Some Filipinos, even though heavily westernized and Christianized, still believe in such entities. The prevalence of belief in the figures of Philippine mythology is strong in the provinces. Because the country has many islands and is inhabited by different ethnic groups, Philippine mythology and superstitions are very diverse. However, certain similarities exist among these groups, such as the belief in Heaven (kaluwalhatian, kalangitan','kamurawayan), Hell (impiyerno, kasanaan), and the human soul (kaluluwa)." Stories in this collection include The Tobacco of Harisaboqued, The Pericos, Quicoy and the Ongloc, The Passing of Loku, The Light of the Fly, Mangita and Larina, How the World Was Made, The Silver Shower, The Faithlessness of Sinogo, Catalina of Dumaguete, The Fall of Polobolac, The Escape of Juanita, The Anting-Anting of Manuelito, and When the Lilies Return.
