Most millenials probably have no idea that the Philippines was once known as "the sick man of Asia". There is no timeline when this tag ceased, but it seems nobody has used it since the Philippines finally and permanently retired its debt with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2007, ending four decades of what many benignly considered "a period of tutelage" with the Fund. In 2010, the country became a net creditor and two years later, contributed US$1 billion to the IMF support package for economies experiencing financial crisis. It was a major turnaround for any country.
