Ferdinand Marcos Major Accomplishments during his prime. FYI: Scripts taken from Saipan Tribune: Reacting to the early 1970s oil shock, Marcos created a major government program to find, develop and generate electricity from hot rocks deep in the ground. Since then, the Philippine government has championed this form of energy. Geothermal power now accounts for about 28 percent of the electricity generated in the Philippines. With 90 million people, about 40 percent of whom live on less than $2 a day, this country has become the world's largest consumer of electricity from geothermal sources. Billions of dollars have been saved here because of reduced need for imported oil and coal. Some on My Hotlist 1. south/north luzon expressway 2. san juanico bridge 3. price of basic commodities are affordable 4. eliminate/lowering criminality rate 5. in times of crisis no banker should hold their green money 6. ccp, film center, folk arts theatre, nayong pilipino 7. manila international airport (NAIA) 8. coastal roads 9. uplift the lives/salary of enlisted men 10. supportive on our national athletes 11. given priority projects on agriculture 12. able to manage our country until the '70's 13. uplift the morale of our policemen 14. advocy of death penalty to drug lords, rapist, etc. 15. we almost got sabah, thanks for the stupidiy of the commanding officers of the soldiers who are engaged in the training. 16. oil/transport price hike are minimal 17. our money is not deprciated againts the U$. 18. our historical treasures are being preserved/renovated to uplift our tourism. 19. our educational system was one of the best in asia. 20. feared by many. To hasten economic development, President Marcos implemented a number of economic programs. These programs helped the country to enjoy the period of economic growth from the mid-1970s until the early 1980s. The farmers were given technical and financial aid and other incentives such as "price support". With the incentives given to the farmers, the country's agricultural sector grew. As a result, the Philippines became self-sufficient in rice in 1976 and even became a rice exporter. TIME Time: How did your husband become so wealthy? Imelda: Ferdinand was a gold trader. He was a lawyer for mining companies. When he entered politics in l949, he had tons and tons of gold. When Bill Gates was a college dropout, Ferdinand already possessed billions of dollars and tons of gold. It wasn't stolen. The Independent World "He was a gold trader. He had a mountain of gold when he entered politics in 1949." By the late 1950s, Marcos had a personal fortune of 7,500 tons of gold, she claims. ("This is the first time I'm telling anyone this.") In the 1970s, after gold went up to $800, the Marcos family, she says, was worth a staggering $35bn when Bill Gates was still a dropout software developer. The Killings during Martial Law, in my opinion were done by NPA's which is a Terrorists who supported People Power. Ferdinand Marcos although was so strict but still human, only terrorists will do such killings, if Ferdinand Marcos is a killer, he should fire all the protesters outside Malacanang.
