SIGNED, sealed, delivered — it's yours. Now what do we have with Maharlika and what will they do with it? I have previously said I am supportive of a national development fund. Preferably one like Indonesia's, but at least the Senate improved on the House version. Still, would it be the way I would do it? No, but I am not the president or a senator, so what should the managers and board do with what we have?

It is clear as can be seen from the rushed document that there are even sloppy typographical errors that could have been cured with a little proofreading. In the section on the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the bill mentions "the monetary board" when it clearly should be "the Monetary Board." Was that so hard to miss, and correct? What else might be there?
