Last September 27, Friday, our Econ 101 prof invited us to the launch of “Weighing In: On the Philippine Economy and Social Progress”, the newest book written by our very own Professor Emeritus Gerardo Sicat. It was an honor and a privilege to be part of the said event. We got to witness the discussions and hear the opinions and point of views of some well-educated men about our nation’s most relevant issues. Professor Marina Durano also did her share as she served as the master of the ceremony. We heard a lot from the guest speakers but frankly, I could not understand much. It seems like they have a different humor as well, one needing knowledge way beyond mine. Nonetheless, the event was still very inspiring, making me want to be in their shoes someday.
It was a great experience being part of something like that. Oh, by the way, we also got free food and an incentive.
