Other side of the story

The continuing challenge in the housing sector is the design of viable housing projects or neighborhoods for the D & E income groups. Its realization in the Philippines is I believe not impossible provided there is reorientation of the market bias against these income groups and if the best of public and private talents and partnerships are employed and subsequently focused toward that vision – something like the focused tenacity of the talents who invented and built the first bomb (if this sort of intelligence can be surfaced from the inventors’ inner depths for a bomb, can we not also do that for decent shelter?).

The recent news of HongKong’s “invisibles” should disturb us because for the longest time the situation there is not unfamiliar to us.
