Abstract

Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos followed a line of puppet regimes, backed by U.S. imperialism, that began with the Philippines’ fifth and latest declaration of independence on July 4, 1946. What made Marcos distinct from his puppet predecessors, however, was his dictatorship from 1972 to 1986. This research aims to analyze economic growth in the Philippines during Marcos’s tenure from 1965 to 1986, focusing on the relationships among U.S. imperialism; the impact of remittances on economic growth in the Philippines; and the overseas Filipinxs who were, in effect, exported to the United States.
