It is summed with three words: God, Gold, and Glory. God: Spanish colonizers actually went to the Philippines to fulfillthe deathwish of Isabel I, who said that "she would do…nate all herwealth for the conversion of the Indies". This was fulfilled byKing Philip II. During the early 1600's, Spain consideredabandoning the Philippines, but was prolong because a Spanishfriar(Fray Fernando Moraga) - so instead of abandoning it, Spainsent notices to all provinces of Spain and Mexico for stevedoresand workmen to enlist as priest and undergo training. After theyfinished training, they were all sent to the Philippines underdifferent orders to serve as religious priests. So now, 85% of thePhilippine population is Roman Catholic (......and 35% are partlyof Spanish descent). Gold: It was the dream of then king of Spain, King Charles I(Emperor Charles V), to obtain the Philippines in order to increasehis personal fortunes and treasury. In fact, after ordering thesoldiers to ransack several Latin American territories for gold,they were sent to the Philippines to discover such too, althoughefforts were futile - gold was never found by the Spanish in thePhilippines because of the hostile mountain tribes. Gold was laterdiscovered by Americans during their occupation of the Philippines.Actually, the Philippines was thought of a colony to be abandoned(as mentioned above) because it was "a drain to Spain's treasury". Glory: Ultimately, it was not just Isabel's wish which helped thePhilippines to be retained by Spain. It was the glory - they wouldnot abandon the Philippines to either British or Portuguese becausethis would bring shame to Spain. Instead, King Philip II boastedthat the sun never sets on his realm (because of the Philippines).When Spain acquired the Philippines, it astonished Europeannations, such as Sicily and Netherlands, who then surrenderedwithout a fight because of what they thought was the superiorforces of Spain. Eventually though, the Spanish were ousted out ofthe islands by Americans on 1898. This caused the Spanish civil wareventually because of shame for its loss of colonies and paved theway for the eventual downfall of Spanish economy during the 1900's.

Taxation in the Spanish colonization greatly improved the production and quality of food and resources the Philippines had to offer. This proved to be a major advantage in the… growth of the country, as it gave them the ability to sell to other countries such as China. One disadvantage was the fact that the Philippines did not have a large source of resources and their farming lacked structure, leading to some instances of low production.
Spanish colonization began in 1565. It effectively ended with theSpanish-American War in 1898. Some Filipinos who had fought theSpanish continued to fight US control for anoth…er 15 years.
