Talking Finance with the Country's Top Finance Honcho


The author interviewing Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima

“Wow Rose you got the Finance Secretary to read the Introduction of your latest book! How cool is that? And how did you do that?” was the reaction of most people who saw the book trailer and the Introduction of The Retelling of The Richest Man in Babylon.

 

Well, I think that’s one of the perks of my age. Secretary Cesar Purisima is only four years older than me and I had the opportunity of doing some investment banking deals with him back in the day. In fact, I remember traveling to Singapore with him in line with a common client, a company that operated an international container terminal. I can still recall that he was a fun person to travel with, asking the flight attendant for toys that they give to toddler passengers. When the attendant gave us a quizzical look, he said, “She has young kids waiting for her to come home.” The FA was gracious enough to hand us a couple of toys. On our way back home when he found me carrying big bags of toys, pasalubong for my boys, he and the other SGV partner Dave Balangue couldn’t help but tease me, “Of course, we have to carry these big bags for you. We’re the stevedores of Rose Fausto, not any different from the stevedores of the terminal operator we’re working on!”

 

A few years later, Cesar went on to become the Chairman and Managing Partner of the country’s largest accounting and multidisciplinary professional services firm, SGV. He was succeeded by Dave when he left to become the Finance Secretary under the GMA administration. And this housewife would say, “Wow! Look, ‘my stevedores’ have come a long way!”

 

 

Chitchatting with the Finance Minister

After coordinating with Baby Magsombol how we could squeeze in my shoot with the very busy Secretary, we finally made it to his satellite office in Makati. First, we had to shoot him reading the Introduction. We had some funny outtakes but I promised not to show them because the stability of our economy might be endangered. The final cut of the Introduction was featured in my new website FQMom.com Introduction: The Retelling of The Richest Man in Babylon.

 

The more interesting clip is what I’m about to share with you – our free-flowing conversation. We talked about many things. He shared his childhood money memory back in General Santos City where his grandfather would give them their daily allowance of 25 centavos that he used to buy his favorite merienda, maruya and how he would trick his younger sister to give him her allowance.

 

He also shared how he and wife Corrie are reading books to their son and hopefully how my new book would give him a head start on the laws of money.

 

He discussed the administration’s top three priorities when it comes to poverty alleviation, namely: 1.) education; 2.) affordable healthcare; and 3.) better work opportunities in the country.

 

He also discussed how they are not just waiting for the trickle down effect but are approaching development from different sectoral angles.

 

The Secretary discussed how we can take full advantage of the demographic dividends of being the youngest country in Asia and also the most mobile and easy to integrate people.

 

He was quite humble not to take credit when I congratulated him for his numerous Finance Minister of the Year awards.

 

See how he answered my question, “Can we withstand any presidency in 2016?” Oh, and watch how he sets me up me towards the end of the interview.

 

I had fun doing this interview with Secretary Purisima. Even the young men who helped me with the shoot did too. Find out why, watch this video - Rose Fres Fausto interviews Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima.

Hi Ms. Rose, I read your articles in Philippine Star and I'm quite interested on your topics about financial literacy. I just turned 25 and currently working in Riyadh, I'd like to make my savings grow while I'm still young and single, can you give me advice on how or where is the wisest way to save or invest? Thanks a lot! God bless you!

Answered by Rose last Apr 23, 2014 / 02:41pm:

Hi Ghurl Vacaro. I hope you read my article that tackled your question. I'm happy to inform you that it received a lot of hits both in this website and PhilStar.com. It was also shared many times. This means that your question helped enlighten a lot of people. Here's the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/dashboard/showArticle/MTYy

For the boys, will you also consider financial literacy as a quality that you will look for to your future gf/wife?

Answered by The Boys last Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00am:

It would be ideal if she were but it's not something we would really "require" so to speak because it's not very common. I guess as long as she's not too much of the "magastos" type because financial literacy is something that you could learn.

Why the title "Raising Pinoy Boys?"? Its culture specific and middle class ideologue ..care to explain? thanks

Answered by Rose last Aug 31, 2011 / 09:33pm:

@Guest Aug 30, 2011. The title is Raising Pinoy Boys because it's a compilation of a mother raising her Pinoy sons. Yes it's culture specific and middle class because that's where I belong. In my over 2 decades of parenting I have always learned a lot from specific stories of book authors, parenting seminar speakers and even conversations with other parents and educators of boys. Thus, I thought it would be worthwhile to share my specific stories and those of the parents of the successful Pinoy men I featured in the book. Thank you very much for your question.

Guest Aug 10, 2011
Can we invite you to talk in our school during a parenting seminar?

Answered by Rose last Aug 10, 2011 / 09:19pm:

@Guest Aug 10, 2011 - Yes you may. I would be glad to. Just send me an email specifying your needs for the talk - the audience, the topic, etc. You may send your email to RaisingPinoyBoys@yahoo.com or through this website. Be sure to leave your name and email address. Thank you.

du u know chris tiu?

Answered by Rose last May 27, 2011 / 11:39am:

I first heard of Chris Tiu when he became a UAAP basketball player of the Ateneo team. I learned about his other admirable traits later on and decided to include him in the book. Fortunately, his mom is a friend of my co-parent so I was able to interview her. He and his parents attended the book launch (see pics in a previous article on the book launch - Jan 2011).
