Publication Detail
DLSU-AKI Policy Brief, Volume XIII, No. 4.: Potential economic effects of lockdown in the Philippines due to COVID-19: Lessening the impact on poor households.

The authors recommend providing direct income support and targeting the support to vulnerable labor groups in critical sectors. This may be channeled through the government’s 4Ps. Furthermore, they recommend that, if the lockdown is extended to three months, an additional support of PhP 70 billion is considered to reverse the change in all poverty indicators prioritizing our worst hit sectors such as agriculture, textile-garments, and construction. ?This Angelo King Institute of Economic and Business Studies brief is co-authored by Dr. Caesar Cororaton, Dr. Marites Tiongco, and Dr. Arlene Inocencio of the DLSU School of Economics.
