Just a little thing[edit]

Rather than pass or fail the story, I should just note this: I had a look through the sources and can't find anything about the typhoon season. This may be mentioned in the FT article which I couldn't read without registering (and I'm not doing that). The rest seems well sourced. —Tom Morris (talk) 14:17, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Sources which require registration to be accessed should be avoided. Sources which require payment to access are a sure-fire way to get an article failed on verifiability. --Brian McNeil / talk 14:19, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Premise is wrong[edit]

This is a bit misleading as the economy actually shrank by 0.2 in this quarter (5.9% PA vs 6.1% PA) if I am reading the sources correctly which is why the BBC article is a little downbeat. Philafrenzy (talk) 10:38, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Washington Post have it as 6.1% adjusted while Bloomberg have 6.3% revised. Others agree on 6.3. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:04, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
Second para risks needs checking. No time for me to do that now. Philafrenzy (talk) 11:05, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

Premise[edit]

Title has now been changed to "Philippine economy grew 5.9% in Q2 of 2012 compared to more than 6% in Q1".

I may be wrong, but I think it is 5.9% for the whole year to end of quarter 2 not 5.9% in quarter 2, otherwise the Philippines would be growing c. 24% PA! Philafrenzy (talk) 11:10, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm just not too crazy about the title. --Bddpaux (talk)
