it's called Supply and Demand. there are more than 10 million residents in metro manila (15 million plus with the influx of transients from neighboring areas at daytime) and a significant portion of that can afford condo units. why? mainly because of BPO and OFW money (not to mention that the affluent are becoming more affluent).

in the next three years, OFWs will continue to grow in number, but the BPO industry is expected to achieve significant growth: the industry will quadruple in size. that means you will see a spike in demand for BPO office space. of course, the demand for condo hi-rises will go along with that.

with that, i hope you drop the issue. it's like listening to a child say, "are we there yet, are we there yet, are we there yet..." peace.

With the fear of US economic recession, do you think the BPO industry will still grow in Philippines?

yes, but probably not as fast. for the following reasons, among others:

1. jobs that have nothing to do with consumption such as medical and legal transcription will continue to have a demand, with or without recession
2. these are the jobs americans don't want in the first place
3. telemarketing will all the more be needed to persuade americans to consume more in a time of recession (the same concept holds true for advertising)
4. outsourcing markets such as the uk and australia have yet to be tapped, although they're coming in by trickles
5. many americans will still have no idea how to operate the electronic gadgets they bought pre-recession and somebody has to tell them how

In in long, Philippine will overtake India and the BPO centre of Asia. I can't imagine that in the future, more than half of the metro's population will be employed by BPO companies. If that happens. Manila will end up as a nocturnal city

Are you serious? Americans don't want to do medical jobs? I beg to differ. The fact is many Americans are going to school or retraining for jobs in the medical field.

Telemarketing to persuade Americans to consume more. Do you live in the United States? Telemarketers are like piriahs here. I hang up on them all the time. I don't need anyone to persuade me to spend money. If I have the money and I want or need something then I will buy it. It is really that simple. It isn't rocket science.

Many Americans still have no idea how to operate the electronic gadgets they bought pre-recession and somebody has to tell them how! Are you kidding me. So, I guess we Americans are just wandering around blindly untill someone in the Philippines shows us how to use our gadgets. Then how did we become a 13 trillion dollar economy if we don't understand how to use all of our gadgets. I don't know the kind of people you hang out with. But the people I know are very tech savy from small kids to older adults. So, you might want to rephrase that statement.

My wife is from the Philippines so I have a great deal of respect for the Philippines and the people that live there. The Philippne economy is an amazing story and has been for a while now. I hope that it continues to grow. I think that the Philippines is projected to grow 7 percent this year although that might come down if we go into a recession here in the United States.

The fed will probably lower the interest rate another 50 basis points this Tuesday to try and thwart a recession. The 150 billion dollar tax package may help as well. All though this will be short term like for the next two quarters. I would like to see real constructive tax reform here in the United States. We are at 5% unemployment in the United States and that is considered full employment here because some people just will not work for whatever reason. Interest rates are dropping and the median house price is declining. Now is a good time to buy before things go up again in a few years. There is always an opportunity to make money in a good market or a bad market if you are ready to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way.
