Philippines leads in income inequality in Asean, says study | Global History and Society | Scoop.it

By Abigail L. Ho
Philippine Daily Inquirer 8:59 pm | Friday, July 22nd, 2011


"The gap between the rich and the poor is most pronounced in the Philippines as compared with neighboring Southeast Asian nations, a new study by research and advisory firm Stratbase Research Institute showed."


"The study noted that the Philippines registered a Gini coefficient of 44 percent last year, higher than Thailand’s 42.5 percent, Indonesia’s 39.4 percent, Malaysia’s 37.9 percent and Vietnam’s 37.8 percent.

The global ranking was prepared by international group Vision of Humanity using the Gini coefficient, a measure of the inequality of a distribution, as the basis."


"“Relatively, the Philippines had the highest Gini coefficient among these countries, which means a greater rate of inequality compared to other Southeast Asian countries,” explained Stratbase president Victor Andres Manhit."


"He said this should be addressed as the huge disparity between the rich and the poor bred “social tension and even political instability.”"

It appears no party will be able to form a coalition government, so there will be another election in June. A record large number of registered voters didn't vote in the recent election, and the outcome next month probably depends on if these people participate in June. The odds of Greece exiting the euro zone in the near term (and the euro) have clearly increased.
