The FEM Regime in Facts and Figures
The Filipino’s average income (measured as GDP per capita) in 1985 was less than what it was 12 years before (1973). All the growth during the Martial Law period was washed out, with Juan and Juana de la Cruz holding a much-depleted income bag. And it would take the Philippines until 2002 to regain the real per capita income levels it was enjoying before the collapse.
