 About the Resource:
Beyond being a record of the life of Leonides S. Virata, this book is a chronicle of the eventful times in which he played an important role as one of the Philippines’ foremost economists, diplomats, business leaders, and public servants. Growing up in Imus, Cavite and caught by the war in America, where he studied and worked briefly, for the Department of Foreign Affairs, he came home and became a key figure in postwar reconstruction through his positions in the Central Bank, Philam Life, the Department of Commerce and Industry, and the Development Bank of the Philippines.

This book introduces us to the major players and issues of the period, and traces the career of Leo Virata against the backdrop of the nation struggling to attain economic and political development. We also get to meet his family, and appreciate the continuity of values from one generation of Viratas to another.
