  • Reverberations from the 2008 financial crisis are still being felt around the world. We travel to the Philippines to see if measures introduced after the Asian financial crash in the 1990s are helping during the current global recession. Asia, more than any other part of the world, is feeling the true implications of the downturn. We also hear from business leaders in the Philippines and government ministers about whether a social services system would help to alleviate poverty in the country.
