    An Economic History of the Philippines

    Onofre Corpuz

    Winner, National Book Award, History, 1996
    This first effort on economic history goes back to the fragments of recorded accounts about the native economy on the eve of the Spanish conquest. It tracks the various strands of transformation and development that went into the shaping of the economy during the Spanish era and the United States occupation. It reports and explains the factors for change and the resulting features of the economy and its sectors. As history, it records the enduring continuities that resisted change by accommodating to it, thus defining large sectors that remain outside the mainstream of the modern economy.
