What were President Marcos', plans, before he got really sick in the early 80s? What were his core visions? Was it too simple to describe his as a garden variety thief like Mobutu or as a simple US puppet? Could he have been more success without Imelda? Why was he a lot less successful, than say Suharto, or Mahathir, Chiang Kai Shek, or Park Chung Hee?
