    Very innacurate, Mahathir was a great ruling prime minister, the one that fucked it up where Ahmad Badawi and Najib Razak... Mahathirs system was perfect. Nobody had any complaints

    It's not really a reset button. It's more of a stop button and then slowly resets. It would take a lot of time for tun M to fix the economy of our country but i'm sure he can do it.

    Whenever I saw that "Unlikely Mahathir has the energy to change the system", I straight away laugh 😂. Boyyyy you legitimately don't know Mahathir. If he can tore down his own political party at this age, he can simply change the system in a blink of our eyes. He is Malaysia greatest Prime Minister for 22 years before he resigned and make a comeback. I don't think Malaysians can keep up with his pace 😂

    Literally - too many holes have been dug and dirt scatters all over. Now the new Ruling Party will have to clean up the mess. On the other hand, the new Ruling Party could bring in "HIM" in for interrogation which would make investigation a lot easier.

    Normally when you pressed the RESET button, the numbers should show "0000". In this case it doesn't show "0000" but rather "RM-41.0Billion" - That's a BIG negative figure!!!!

    Bullshit, The manipulators of the currency market in 1997 by the likes of George Soros that tried to destroy the Malaysian economy, FAIL. It was stopped by the brilliant move of Dr Mahathir to stop the outflow of funds that gives time to stabilize the economy. The IMF was waiting to come in and RAPE the country. It is people like you Richard Harris, that still spread FAKE NEWS.

    The only man that pegged the US dollar against the International Monetary Funds advise and still won is back. Love him or hate him, he is still right. Yet best of all, he is a doctor by trade. All you economists can shove your theories down your ***. You need some gumption to even imagine anything close to what this man has achieved.

      So basically you analysts are saying that after Tun Mahathir kicks out the most corrupt PM we've had come across, and then things are going to get worse? What are you smoking cause I want some. Total eggheads.

    Unlikely Mahathir has the energy to change the system!?!? LOl how clueless these people are.
    Did you guys kinda miss the HUGE MONUMENTAL EVENT that he literally brought down a 60 year old juggernaut coalition in one master stroke? He didnt do it in a couch at home by tapping on the smartphone!
    After a week of endless campaigning nearly everywhere, then literally zero sleep on election and post election, getting sworn in, did you know what Mahathir did the very next morning after? People saw him cycling around town doing his routine exercise!
    I was still in bed for staying up all night glued to tv and smartphone screens like the majority of the country are...and I'm not even half his age!
    In fact, the real question is, CAN THE COUNTRY KEEP UP WITH HIM?

    White people always have something to say and criticize...
    No change in government = "This country is ran by dictators. Democracy is nonexistent. It is unsafe for investors"
    Change in government = "The new government is inexperience and therefore the economy and any investments are unstable due to policy change"
    You just can't win in life when white people are giving advice.

  • Hi all and lets talk

    ..the gst of just 6% will be cancelled, that pyramid system will release all 30 million malaysians of approximately rm120 million per day as tax from government, not including income tax and others. Currently in 2018 the normal salary as worker is rm1500+- depends on position, yes sales person...managers...etc will get more. But a big majority of below rm2000 is a fact.
    Before Tun Mahathir retires, Malaysia had subsidies from the government reliefing its citizens for petrols, flours, sugar, cooking oil etc. And controlled price for meats and rice. And maybe i missed somemore items.
    The outcome from Tun Mahathir was Malaysians flourished. Investors from countries gained.

  • DR Ir M
    DR Ir M Year ago +8

    Many people with ulterior motives have grossly underestimated the vigor and brilliance of Tun M. Just look at his track record during the Asian Financial Crisis in 1997. Many parties including the IMF call him an economic pariah for not taking a bail-out loan from IMF. But his own solution was the saviour for Malaysia. Just give him time and we'll see what he can do to pull Malaysia out of the financial crisis created by the corrupt and kleptocratic PM.
    The world stood in awe watching a 93 yo man defeated a 64 yo descendant of one of the country's PM. Changing of the 60 yr government with a bloodless and democratic process of election without foreign interference is exemplary. Even developed nations should learn from him. In fact, the world should heap praises on him and the country rather than express baseless and pre-mature opinion

    I once read an article from Bosnia, 'If Malaysians do not want Mahathir anymore, give him to us. He was very good at us when he became the 4th prime minister.' Sorry, we will not give him to anyone. He belongs to the Malaysians. Thanks for saving Malaysia. We ❤️ you Tun....

    Najib is a neoliberalist championing the Rich stealing from the Poor. Basically, Najib is very good for businesses and infrastructure. In fact, Najib is more of the Alibaba Internet eCommerce honcho rather than an Alibaba with 40 thieves caricature his enemies has portrayed him.

    Zaman TUN GDP +8% sepuluh tahun, dunia panggil Asian Tiger. Zaman Najib GDP 5+ % sahaja. IMF kata rasuahjatuhkan GDP 2%. Zaman Tun ASN (saham) dividen 14% rakyat terutama Melayu ada pendapatan bail dari saham, zaman Najib ASN dividn 7%, peneroka Felda dulu tak hutang, hilang RM10 billion dalam FGV, sekarang hutang, rugi saham. KWSP duit simpanan, Tabung Haji dan LTAT hilang beratus-ratus juta dari "projek pembangunan" FGV dan 1MDB. Kerajaan akan siasat dan rakyat boleh tahu apa belaku. Pelabur asing yang lari dari Malaysia kerana skandl 1MDB kerajaan Kleptrokasi akan pulang. Dengan penubahan kerajaan, dunia yang dulu kesian kita akan bermula berbangga Malaysia.
