Topic 3
Task/Activity
Essay. Answer the following questions (10 points)
1. What is the importance of economic stability to every state?
The importance of economic stability to every state is it enables the other macro-economic
objectives to be achieved, such are stable prices and sustainable growth. It also creates a right
environment for every job creation and to have a balance of payments. Also the economic stability
created a certainty and confidence to invest in technology and human capital. To have a stable economy
we should include the solid fundamentals, a competitive workforce, a stable jobs market, and
investment in the construction sectors.
Additionally, the importance of having stable economy for the state will lessen crimes especially
in terms of money laundering, fraud even the corruption that is real in our country which is the
Philippines, in my own words this wrong doings will be avoided because the people will have a good
income from their stable job which brought to them by the stable economy and through this they
needn't to grip on blade.
Stable economy isn't a myth for an underdeveloped country like Philippines and I strongly
believe that. Moreover, the country with a stable economy has taken the account of giving its fellowmen
the desirable life which includes, premier education, good benefits, government independence and the
resources that it firstly needed in order to survive everyday pass.
2. What are the possible problems in the philippines in terms of:
a. Education rate; and
b. Technology advancement
The possible problems in the philippines in terms of education rate, studies and fact-finding
commissions have shown that the deteriorating quality of education is due to the low government
budget for education, poor management of schools, poor school facilities such as laboratory and library
facilities, poor learning environment, the content of the curriculum. And in terms of technology
advancement, Science, technology and innovation (STI) are an indispensable component of the response
to our challenges.

The Philippines is at present ill-prepared to cope with these challenges. We are not investing
sufficient resources in science and technology (S&T) human resource development, research and
development (R&D), and physical infrastructure. Today we lack even the minimum number of scientists
and technologists needed for innovation-driven development.
As a result, we suffer from low industrial and agricultural productivity, overall inefficiency, and a
meager output of knowledge products, such as scientific publications, patents, and innovations. Where
there are highly-trained scientists and technologists, there is not enough local investment to absorb
them. Thus, we are engaged in an unwinnable effort to stem the exodus of our highly-trained
professionals to countries that are able to provide them the material reward, productive working
conditions, and social recognition that are denied them in their own country.
The Philippines is not a technologically advanced country however we can consider the country
is below average with the amount of technology we have in present. There's escalators, elevators, air-
conditioning but a bad train system, heavy traffic, bad construction of buildings. So far, as I can see,
there is a lot of issues or problems that the government should address to have a successful and
productive institution or country in the near future.
