Filipino bishop says economic policies only benefit the rich
CWN - August 14, 2013
A Filipino bishop has criticized government economic policies, saying that they have increased disparities in wealth and aggravated the “unbridgeable gap between the rich and poor.”
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.
