how rich is Henry Sy, the man who topped in the Forbes Asia's 40 Wealthiest Filipino? Are all his money enough to feed and shelter all poor families in the philippines?

He was ranked #14 with $4 Billion in 2006, up from $1.4 Billion 2 years earlier.

hi! If what you mean is it's too bad the really wealthy don't do more, I agree.. But if what you're thinking is governement should seize wealth or property of these families, it won't work. Soon enough the government just keeps all the wealth, and more people starve. Democracy works best, because the people create, and get busy and solve problems.. Everytime there's a new govenment program in response to a problem, the government has morphed into bigger government.

nope... im just wondering how rich he is. I just hope those rich people will be charitable enough to share their blessings since we have so many less fortunate countrymen. But im not in favor of the government seizing their wealth for those money will probably not reach the poor, or shall I say part of the entire money will just go to the pockets of those with power
