The Philippines of 1970's, a modern industrial nation, independent, nationalistic and proud, is the result of the struggles of the 1950's and 60's in which Henares and his generation played their part. Fiercely nationalistic, Henares chose as his field of battle the area of economics. There are many milestones that marked our way to economic emancipation and Henares was there first. He was a visionary, gadfly, an achiever whose writings, speeches, TV programs, actuations prodded this country almost against its will to accept the challenge of change in the postwar years.
