Title :Dependency Theory and the Philippines' BOP Performance
Authors :Munoz Ramirez, Pedro
Issue Date :26-Apr-2019
Abstract :This paper presents a critical exploration of the relationship between the Philippine’s turbulent colonial past and its current economic state and whether Dependency Theory can explain said relationship, using the Philippines’ Balance of Payments quarterly reports for the 2003-2017 period. It is divided in five sections: (1) Introduction; (2) Colonialism in Okinawa and the Philippines, a brief description of how colonialism developed in both areas; (3) Dependency Theory, an explanation of the theoretical basis for the analysis contained in this paper; (4) The Phillipines’ Balance of Payments, an analysis of the country’s Balance of Payments throughout the 2003-2017 period; and (5) Conclusions. The conclusion reached is that Dependency Theory suffices for explaining more than half of the reasons why the Philippines reported deficit, and in the case of surplus Dependency Theory has a strong relationship with the majority of the driving forces behind the causes for surplus.
