  • The financial crisis is one of the most significant threats to the world economyIt is now affecting worker’s incomes and jobsIn fact many developed countries have entered into recession, and unemployment is on the riseIn developing countries, economic growth has significantly slowed downANIMATEThis is apparently what is happening around the world. Do you think it’s the same here in the Phils?* Workers obtained a smaller share of the fruits of economic growth* The ongoing global economic slowdown is affecting low-income groups disproportionately
  • Lahatnagsa-suffer sapanahonng financial crisis, perosapanahonng economic growth, hindimasyadongpantayang distribution of benefitsHigh-income groups benefited more from the economic growth period prior to 2007Rising income inequality represents a danger to the social fabric as well as economic efficiency when it becomes excessive Wider income inequality can be helpful  it signals stronger rewrds for work effort, innovation, skill and development (too little income inequality can weaken the incentive to take risks or invest in human capital)BUT excessive income inequality can be harmful  when low-income groups perceive growth policies to be benefitting only the high-income groups (they will feel a sense of injustice and this could result to social conflict)
