Excess money

A lot of cash is available in the system to finance productive ventures that can sustain the country’s economic growth. But banks choose to park these funds at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas than risk lending them. As of the latest count, nearly P2 trillion is with the central bank’s special deposit accounts (SDAs). That’s almost equivalent to the national government’s budget of P2.01 billion for the entire 2013.

Consumer protection

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Amando Tetangco said something truly important at the gathering last week of the Chamber of Thrift Banks. In his speech, Tetangco said the BSP was drafting rules that would compel banks to improve on the ways they protect consumers.

What CA resolution says: BSP erred in shutting down Banco Filipino

This refers to the news article titled “Latest ruling keeps Banco Filipino shut.” (Inquirer, 2/27/12) Marlon Ramos, who is the author of this report, has no business misleading the public with erroneous reporting. His lead sentence was, “Which is which?” implying inconstancy on the part of the Court of Appeals. Of course, this is not the fact.

Octogenarians

By

Last Friday, my cousin Max Edralin celebrated his 80th birthday. One of the country’s top professionals in the highly competitive environment of public relations, Max continues with an active schedule as a consultant with the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. As J.J. Calero in one of his BusinessWorld columns some years ago put it, “Mention Max Edralin and the first thing that comes to mind is a true blue, dyed-in-the-wool public relations professional.”
