On increasing poverty and car sales

Poverty worsens…

Poverty worsened from 2003 to 2006, and the Arroyo administration will almost definitely not achieve its poverty reduction target under its medium-term development plan.

as car sales increase.

Meanwhile, local car manufacturers last year had their best year in over a decade, with sales of more than 118,000 units, marking the first time the industry breached the 100,000-unit sales mark since 1996.

Hmm…our society seems to be doing a Robin Hood in reverse.
