IBON Yearstarter Press Conference held Friday morning prior to the 2019 Yearend Birdtalk at the Commission on Human Rights. IBON Executive Director Sonny Africa talked about slowing growth, persistent poverty, unemployment and poor quality work, gross inequality and why government borrowing and spending on infrastructure does not necessarily translate to better lives for the majority of Filipinos, and the need to build and strengthen our own production industries in order to really have sustainable jobs, better incomes, robust economic activity and sustained growth. #Birdtalk #MalalangEkonomiya #MayMagagawa #PeopleEconomics
