I have always thought that the Philippines was a great place to live if you did not have to make your money here or really live as a part of the community. The corruption, crab mentality and overall pettiness will drag people back down.

As expats with outside income we can enjoy the good that is here while avoiding most of the bad.

Yes, that's a big probllem, but I plan to start a new business in the Philippines anyway, because I think of what wife and kids - and grandkids - can live of after I have died. IF I manage to build a profitable enough business and IF I manage to teach them how to handle it. If so, much money can be saved at they will not need college/university exams if they chose to join the family business.
