Do you believe DOST should have a big budget in order to make our country a little more progessive?

DOST-Department Of Science and Technology of the Philippines. Technology brought out the Japanese out of the ashes of World War2 and became the leading electronics manufacturer, first in Southest Asia then the world. Now it is Korea's turn to follow the footstep of their rival Japanese, while China is lurking in the shadow. While we are still climbing coconut tree and making tuba for the drinking session this night. Why can't we be like them even half of what they know would be fine. I was also hoping that DOST should be attach to the Philippines military in building weapons for our own defense and offense capability. With the present nano technology we can harness it's potential by making not only body armor steel platted or titanium built for police officers during heavy firefight but could also monitor their pulse/heart and vital sign. I also thought about a shoes that can monitor a person's vital sign from heart/pulse/blood rate all because of a microchip that is embedded in the sole of the shoes and the monitoring screen is place in the wrist just like a watch and small like an MP3. All he/she have to do is turn on to check his/her condition every now and then while at work or at play. I suppose my idea is not appropriate in Philippines condition. Sabi nga mababaw magisip ang Filipino just look at some of the questionnaire here, at mababaw din ang kaligayahan. I know...I know this idea wouldn't work in the Philippines. Thank you for telling me. But still believe that technology is the answer to bring forth our country to another dimension. So what do you think this time?

Government involvement should be minimal to harness full potential of technology as tool for advancement. Government may set directions and create an environment conducive for growth but the onus should be on the private sector to set the tempo for progress. The collapse of communism and success of capitalism is proof... More

doesn't matter how much money we give DOST as yearly budget, the fact will always remain that the government sector cannot lead our country in technological development. govt agencies have agendas that are beholden to whoever is sitting in power and therefore have no continuity in their programs and projects...
