they were practically destroyed during WWII, you left that out. they really never fully recovered. corrupt gov't officials pocketed the funds the US gave during the marshall plan and an overall lack of freedom and too much corruption ruined the philippines. i dont think you can blame it on anything other than the gov't.

Look at everywhere the Spanish were at, and you will find most left the areas economically depressed. That is after the Spanish stole all of the natural resources and wealth.
All of these areas are impoverished.
