Corrupt politicians have the same familiarity with the food “Lechon” in the Phillippines. Both are present in every town fiesta. The Philippines is famous around the world for two great things, beautiful islands, and corrupt politicians. The Filipinos are no longer surprised with perfectly fine roads being reworked and concrete roads that lead to nowhere. But we love our politicians, and we still vote for them.

So how can a corrupt politician earn money in the Philippines?

Before we start, I would like to emphasize that this tutorial is a beginner’s guide and it is only for small-time corrupt politicians. The information on this article is fully out of research and I am not a politician myself, because the Philippines is a democratic country and we have this pay-per-vote system during an election. And I simply do not have the cash to win.

Let us now go back to the topic and discuss how corrupt politicians earn money in the Philippines.

Illegal logging

Lumber is in demand no matter what is the season. There are so many trees in the Philippines that corrupt politicians find ways to circumvent the law. Or cut the trees during Sundays when officers of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources have no office.

Illegal Quarry

Sand and gravel are the rice for construction. Even though illegal quarries are obviously linked to catastrophic floods, it is still one of the highest paying side hustle of corrupt politicians. But illegal quarries produce side effects to politicians. Most politicians that support this natural destruction have oversized bellies. So big that is difficult to aim during peeing.

Dropshipping

If you are a contractor for a government project, learn how to dropship. Effectively implementing dropshipping inside government offices can ease the process of your permits, or you can win almost all bids of projects. So how does dropshipping works for corrupt politicians in the Philippines? And how these politicians are earning money?

During occasions like birthdays, Christmas parties, graduations, and anniversaries, Government Suppliers or Contractors dropship under office tables, party venues, and even at the front door of houses. Dropshipping is a genius way to earn money. Another method of drop shipping, contractors of projects drop construction materials to the houses of corrupt politicians before proceeding to a project site. And that is how corrupt politicians earn from dropshipping.

Wish Projects

These are projects that appear after corrupt politicians wish upon a falling star. Insensitive projects like building a man-made beach in the middle of the city, while the rest of the citizens are suffering from a pandemic. Or reclaim part of the ocean and build a park while the city does not have a proper sanitary landfill. I guess a park is much important than a dumpsite. And corrupt politicians earn from this strategy through dropshipping.

Affiliate marketing

What will you do if you are a politician and you are also a real estate developer? Easy, design the road network of the country. Design it in such a way that it will pass by your property where you are planning to build a subdivision. It is the best referral ever. The roads are your affiliate link and the innocent task payers using the road are your market leads.

Pack Meals

Among the easy ways, corrupt politicians earn money in the Philippines, pack meals is the ultimate big brain method. It requires low to no upfront investment and if implemented properly, it is a great source of monthly passive income. A city in the Philippines can spend around $40,000 per month on meal expenses. These are food packs during official meetings, conferences, volunteer work, and feeding programs. And what if corrupt politicians will receive 5 % of the $40,000? That is an easy $2,000 of monthly passive income for corrupt politicians in the Philippines.

Final Thoughts

Corruption is the number 1 cause of natural calamities and poverty in the Philippines. God was supposedly punishing the corrupt politicians and the poor citizens became collateral damage. And this is the sickening truth of the Philippines, the back alley that they never show to world conferences. Though much has been done to correct the behaviors of these crocodiles, the network of ugly politicians in the Philippines still exists. Cut one head and two shall take its place. But the world should know that the Philippines is a lovely country to visit, except for China, who banned Filipino’s from entering their country after they spread Covid to the Philippines.
