Why 5 Million?

by in List on November 23, 2007

(Annotated)

WANTED: FIVE MILLION HEROES to help your country!

You are the HERO your country needs, if you are willing to:

1. BUY FILIPINO MADE PRODUCTS to create more industries and JOBS;
Team Manila!

2. SAVE 10% of your income in our local banks to increase domestic capital;
I have a Landbank and a Unionbank account. Does the latter count?

3. LEARN A NEW BUSINESS and keep yourself productive all the time;
Editing comics? Calling travel agencies? Those aside, I’m far more productive than anyone else in this household, even if I sleep 12 hours a day.

4. INVITE RELATIVES RESIDING ABROAD to visit the Philippines once or twice a year to boost Philippine Tourism;
We don’t need to ask them to do that. They already do.

5. INVEST ON AGRICULTURAL VENTURES to ensure food supply for the Filipino family;
Virgin Coconut Oil? I’m not that entrepreneurial yet.

6. RESPECT PROPERTY RIGHTS, FOLLOW ALL LAWS & REGULATIONS, AND BE HONEST to achieve a just and orderly Philippine society;
Snort. Giggle. Sneer.

7. ORGANIZE MORE COOPERATIVES to help the poor;
If all FIVE MILLION started a cooperative, wouldn’t that saturate the market?

8. CUT-DOWN ON ENTERTAINMENT EXPENSES to teach children the value of sacrifice and hard work;
I have no life. There’s nothing to cut down on.

9. INCREASE YOUR INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTIVITY BY 20% to become globally competitive;
It’s increasing. In a see-saw fashion.

10. REDUCE TARIFF ON ALL PRODUCTION AND AGRICULTURAL EQUIPMENT to encourage production.
Whut. How can I reduce tariffs???
