 The strong peso and the surging stock prices are meaningless if
 they do not positively affect the lives of the majority.  Yet,
 government claims that an economic takeoff is imminent.   And that
 the strong peso and surging stock prices are initial signs that we
 are headed towards that direction.

 On the political front, the political stalemate among the political
 parties, the continuing question on the legitimacy of the present
 government, the major recommendations of the Concom are but some
 issues that also need to be understood.

 This quarter's Eagle Watch Briefing will lead the audience to
 understand these issues:  whether the rosy headline statistics
 that highlight the financial bullishness reflect the true state
 of the real economy , whether there is basis for the much-touted
 claim of an economic take-off, and whether the recent political
 developments will finally arrest questions on the legitimacy of
 the present leadership.
