Thank you Zorro, I found your post very interesting. The finances of countries around the world is an inexact science, the more I try to understand it, the less I do. So many variables.
Although I have been a member for some year, only returned to being an active member recently. This is a good forum and the moderators do a good sensible job IMO. Unlike the one I was spending my time on until recently.
But I would love to see more posts from members on their life experiences irrespective of where they are currently living, but of course, especially here in Philippines.
