Light Monday read

Hope everyone is having (or had depending on when you read this) a good break.

Anyway, I received this a few days ago and thought it’s good to share the laughter. While they mainly depict the state of economy in the US, things aren’t that different here in Malaysia.

Kid: Mom! Teacher called me Lehman Brothers because I got zero mark for mathematics.

Mom: You should tell her she looks like Fanny.

Consumption spending, reducing interest rate to increase aggregate demand, or other pump-priming or "stimulus package" actions as espoused by Keynesian economist has always been the norm in this country during economic crisis.

The so-called Keynesian income multiplier; first put forth by Richard Kahn, in its simplest form: 1/(1-c) or 1/s where c is marginal propensity to consume; s is savings. As can be seen, the multiplier increase with increased consumption. But do we question if this model is still relevant today, especially in this country?

The questions is does it really helps the economy in the current situation where confidence in our current government is at an all-time low?

Where the powers-that-be do not have a clear and credible policies to inspire that confidence in the people.

Where those with power are not advocating cooperation between the various races but instead chose to pitch one group against the other.

How very true. People are unwilling to spend now. Shopping malls are full but not many are spending...
