Cronyism is again in the headlines after the President publicly lambasted the water distribution concessionaires, Manila Water and Maynilad Water, for the onerous provisions of the concession agreement they signed with the government, when water distribution was privatized during the Ramos administration. The water distributor's stock took a beating at the Philippine Stock Exchange amid the insinuated sentiment that the President was laying the groundwork for one of his major supporters to take over the distribution concession.

Route rationalization and the formulation of a point-to-point intermodal transport system is the key to maximizing road use for the greater benefit of commuters over private motorists. If there is a modern and convenient transport system in place, there would be no reason for private motorists not to consider this option as opposed to their using their motor vehicles on a daily basis.

The noble intention of education for the underprivileged becomes the basis for a mutually-beneficial relationship between the city government and the college, which eventually is upgraded to a university. For the politicians, the university becomes a repository of political appointees and a tool for distributing largesse to their constituencies.

Energy security is essential for economic growth specially in the Philippine setting due to its dependence on imported oil. The economy is largely consumption-driven which makes it extremely vulnerable to price shocks because of the possibility of high inflation that slows down consumption and the economy consequently.
