Books By Dr. Ben Diokno
« on: March 02, 2020, 08:41:14 PM »

            Dr. Benjamin Diokno, Central Bank Governor and former Budget Secretary launched today four books he penned about issues that materially impact the country’s pursuit of inclusive economic growth during an event held at the Philippine International Convention Center.

            According to Dr. Diokno, “In these publications, I discuss critical economic issues with candor as I believe that a sensible appreciation of facts, in full and without frills, is essential to formulating workable and effective economic policies.”

            “I see these books providing valuable inputs to national decisionmakers, both present and future,” added Dr. Diokno, whose work distilled his broad experience as an economist, educator and public servant.

            In “Through the Looking Glass: A Look into Public Economic Issues in the Philippines,” Dr. Diokno dissects economic issues during three key junctures in history: the EDSA People Power Revolution, the Asian Financial Crisis, and the rise of a highly popular Philippine leader in 2016.

            Meanwhile, “State of the Nation: A Retrospective Look into the Macroeconomic Issues of the Philippines,” presents Dr. Diokno’s insights on agriculture, infrastructure, foreign direct investments, poverty, as well as international trade and regional economic integration.

            “Governance,” on the other hand, tackles the idea of public service in the context of three Philippine administrations.

            Lastly, in “Holdap: The Truth about Pork,” Dr. Diokno shares his experience as a leading critic of the system that allocates budget for distribution by legislators, which was struck down by the Supreme Court in 2013.
