What so new in NEM?

(Najib’s NEM – looks good on paper but will it stick in reality? Can Malaysians afford to make that leap of faith with Najib’s ideas and face the world?)

Najib have just launched New Economic Model (some says identical to Pakatan Rakyat’s economy model) which supposedly replaces the New Economic Policy.… [Click to read the rest] “What so new in NEM?”

1Economy Treason

This is not only alarming but it is getting out of hand…

This should have caused alarms to go off in the offices of the PM, MACC, Police and any other law enforcement agencies linked with fight of corruption and finding and prosecution of traitors of nation’s economy:-

It’s a surprise but the price of the thosai at a restaurant near the workplace has indeed reduced by 20 cents. What surprised me what not the amount that they reduced but the fact that they actually took the trouble to reduce the price.

RM100 isn’t much today

An interesting topic in The Star today and I must agree there that RM100 is indeed not much today but is it?

Now let’s see that again based on my daily expenses

A) When I was studying Law part time and working full time (almost 10 years ago)

Transportation: RM2.00 bus fare to and fro my house to KL (then I walk from the bus station to my work place, almost 5 kilometers away and walk again to the college – no wonder I was slim and very healthy then)

Food total: RM3.50 based on RM1.00 (“nasi lemak biasa” or 3 kari-puffs, either one for almost everyday!
