INTRODUCTION Poverty and inequality have been recurrent challenges in the Philippines and have again to come to the fore in the wake of the current global financial, crisis and rising food, fuel, commodity prices in 2008. Fundamentally, poverty is the inability of having choices and opportunities, a violation of human dignity. It means lack of basic capacity to participate effectively in society. It means not having enough to feed and give clothes to a family, not having a school or clinic to go to, not having the land on which to grow one's food or a job to earn one's living, not having access to credit. It means insecurity, powerlessness and exclusion of individuals, households and communities. It means susceptibility to violence, and it often implies living in marginal or fragile environments, without access to clean water or sanitation. Poverty is also considered as a global issue. Almost half the world over 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day. Poverty is the state for the majority of the world’s people and nations. Such causes of poverty and inequality are no doubt real. But deeper and more global causes of poverty are often less discussed. Behind the increasing interconnectedness
promised by globalization are global decisions, policies, and practices. These are typically influenced, driven, or formulated by the rich and powerful. These can be leaders of rich countries or other global actors such as multinational corporations, institutions, and influential people.
