The Economy of the Philippines: Elites, Inequalities and Economic Restructuring

By Peter Krinks | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

In the long process of collecting information and writing this book, I have been indebted to many people. Foremost are the hundreds of Filipinos in town and country who have answered my questions with amazing tolerance and generosity. They include farmers, civil servants, business people and academics. I am particularly grateful to Professor Randolf David and the staff at the Third World Studies Centre in the University of the Philippines for their diverse help over the years. Members of the School of Economics at the University of the Philippines, the College of Agriculture at Los Baños, the Ateneo of Manila University and the Ateneo of Davao University are prominent among other academic sources of help and ideas. Lita Velmonte has helped with information and contacts in many areas, and Emma Escover was an indefatigable research assistant. In the civil service, officers in many branches of the National Economic and Development Authority and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics provided much assistance.

The bibliography below suggests the scale of my debt to them.

I am also very grateful to the Australian Research Grants Commission for financial assistance and to Macquarie University for various grants and for periods of study leave that supported field trips to collect information in the Philippines. Colleagues in the Department of Human Geography generously allowed me time from teaching duties for such periods, and welcomed me as an Honorary Associate after I retired. Dr John Langdale and Associate Professor David Rich helped by commenting on drafts of Chapters Five and Six, while Professor Bob Fagan has contributed more generally. Judy Davis drew most of the figures and maps, and Ken Roussell drew the rest.

I thank the following for permission to reproduce material from, or based upon, their publications: Ibon Databank, for my adaption of a figure from A Contract for Underdevelopment, by Cornelia H. Aldana, 1989; the International Rice Research Institute for my adaptation of a figure from 'Classification of
