yeah, the political system affects the economy because the political leaders are the one leading but the economy may be saved and grow if we will pray to the Supreme God

Success is an attitude and if it is the attitude of every Filipino, the economy may rise and the political system may change

Yes. I agree that success or failure in a country's economy can't be solely attributed to the defect or weakness of a political system/structure. Citizens' participation and vigilance determine the destiny of one's nation.

In my opinion, there are various reasons for the success or fall of the country's economy other than political system. Though, we see that the trend today is the Democratic Political System.

This past thirty years, there are successful countries adapted democracy as their political system. And especially in Asia, like Taiwan, South Korea..., who have furthered improved their economy than the Philippines. Also try to monitor Vietnam, their economic stature had vastly developed and soon will overcome the Philippine economy.

And no matter what kind of political system a country would have, it will definitely not work if the government is corrupt (I don't know why some government can't even moderate their greed).
