Tullao to launch new book

Economics professor and University Fellow Dr. Tereso Tullao Jr. will celebrate his 60th birthday on September 28, 2012, a month ahead of the actual date, with the launch of his 17th book entitled “25 Taon Tungo sa Intelektwalisasyon ng Filipino: 25 Piling Sanaysay sa Ekonomiks”, at the Marilen Gaerlan North conservatory.

Tullao explains that his new book contains 25 years of his contribution to the intellectualization of Filipino through his teaching of Economics in the vernacular. He furthers, “[The book is a] collection of my essays since 1987, when I started using Filipino in my lectures.”

The former College of Business and Economics Dean started using Filipino when he came back from China in 1987, during the Linggo ng Wika celebration. Professors were asked to teach in Filipino for the entire week. Tullao consequently delivered all his lectures in Filipino, and did not stop after the Linggo ng Wika.  He had vowed then to write, teach, and deliver all his lectures in Filipino.

The book contains 25 essays that cover general economics, international economics, education, entrepreneurship, and overseas Filipino workers, among other topics. The DLSU Publishing House is currently producing limited print copies of the book since the book will be sold and distributed primarily as an E-book.

Tullao’s new book is said to be the first publication to be released directly under the Office of the President. It will also be Tullao’s 17th book.

Tullao is the current director of the Angelo King Institute, and is currently writing a book about his father tentatively entitled, “Secret of Living up to 96: The Joy of Taking Care of Dad.”
