Filipino bishop says economic policies only benefit the rich

Bishop Broderick Pabillo, a Manila auxiliary who chairs the justice-and-peace commission for the Filipino bishops’ conference, said that economic growth has benefited only a small proportion of the nation’s population, while leaving the poor further behind.
