The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
Road to New Normal Will be Slow But Sure
There is no quick fix to our battered economy as we reopen it. The road to the new normal and economic recovery will be long and slow but sure, as it is with the rest of the world.
Fighting to Survive
Almost two and a half months into the lockdown brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, we continue to focus on the daily announcements of new COVID-19 cases by the Department of Health (DOH). Understandably so because we need to focus on the health of our people. We want fewer afflictions and more recoveries.
Commuting in the Age of the Coronavirus
Last May 16, government authorities began a gradual transition to reopening some economic and social activities in selected areas of the country. As I wrote in previous columns, this is something that we need to do: an incremental lifting of some restrictions stifling the economy and the livelihood of our people, at the same time crafting and implementing protocols in order to prevent a second wave of infections.
