Title: Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program: Boon or Bane?
Description: In this paper, three interrelated questions are explored. How helpful actually is Pantawid Pamilya to the poor -- and to the country as a whole? How solid are the arguments of the critics and evidence for their claim that the program should be de-funded or abolished due to its alleged weaknesses and detrimental unintended consequences? What lessons can the upcoming new government learn from the experience of Pantawid Pamilya?
