“The National Interest” series ponders the erosion of indigenous human values by Western-style economics. Colonizers no longer physically govern the Philippines, but the exploitation continues on an ever-deeper and more destructive level.Contrasting hard facts and cold numbers (the Western view) of the Overseas Filipino Worker economy with blurred and grainy faces of the children left behind raises questions about the true meaning of security and success. The children were photographed by “Sayote Queen,” a prolific and talented photographer who resides in the Philippines. Photo from www.flickr.com,
