    The perks of office are vast in the Philippines, where President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has seen her declared personal net worth grow from $US1.5 million in 2001 to $US3.2 million in 2008. This is a yearly increase of almost $US250,000: not bad for someone with a monthly salary of just $US1000. So it is little wonder politicians are prepared to go to extreme lengths to ensure that they are the next in line to serve the nation.
