CITIES DRIVE GLOBAL GROWTH

CITIES DRIVE GLOBAL GROWTH

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

The world is going urban and no force whatsoever, save for geological cataclysm of a planetary scale, can wreck the social phenomenon of urbanization. My own country PH is now 70% urban population-wise, which is in far contrast to what it was once during my birthyear of 1958 when 85% of people were rural peasants and fisherfolks.

 

Cities were the ones that drove the domestic…

EUROZONE’S PATHETIC 0.8% GROWTH

EUROZONE’S PATHETIC 0.8% GROWTH

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Pathetic! This is what I can say of the latest 0.8% growth for the Eurozone during the 1st quarter of 2011. The figure seems to echo the growth for Greece during the same period, of 0.8% growth in growth domestic product or GDP.

 

As I’ve been saying for a couple of decades now, based on a pattern that was started from 1990 onwards yet, Europe is flat on…
