Volume 3 Issue 11: Two-Cent Economics

Malaysia, North Africa and the Middle East

Tahrir Square, Egypt
The above picture shows the massive gathering of protesters in Egypt where the revolution began on 25 January 2011. Years of pent-up frustration towards the mismanagement and abuse by the government were all gathered there.

I suppose the question to ask is, "Will the same thing happen in Malaysia?"

Even better, "Should the same thing happen in Malaysia?"

Will the frustration of the Malaysian people boil over and lead to the massive protests seen in the North African and Middle Eastern countries? If a revolt does happen, what happens next? Food for thought...
