The former military man flexes what he knows about economics.

Former Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano found a fresh way to spite the Duterte administration, this time about numbers.

Alejano weighed in on slower inflation, as pointed out by an economist column. Contrary to what Cabinet Secretaries are doing, the defeated senatorial bet thinks there’s no basis to praise the government for easing inflation. After all, prices continue to pick up.

“Lowering of inflation rate does not mean lowering of prices of basic commodities. Matataas na at nag slown down lang sa pagtaas, pero ‘di bumaba,” Alejano said.
