  • Description

    In parts of Asia like Manila, a shortage of space for graveyards has led to a boom in the profitable business of Memorial Parks.

    Enterprising businessmen buy large tracts of land, turn them into gardens, and sell burial plots. In a stagnant economy, the Memorial Park business is thriving as never before.

    The owners are selling a scarce commodity in a land of exploding population growth, and demand can only increase.

    As one park owner remarked in satisfaction: "The Parks have become so attractive and inviting that people are dying to get there."
