Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Ahmad Maslan has yet again given his two-sens worth of how to live for Malaysians and it has not gone very well judging by his past records.
Ahmad Maslan must be finding it hard to please everyone these days. Everything he says seemed to be OUT OF PLACE, OUT OF CONTEXT and OUTRIGHT IGNORANT!!
In his latest statement whether as a politician or a minister, he called on consumers to practice prudent spending because it will then lower the prices of goods. This is in light of the recently implemented GST (Goods and Services Tax) which has since been under a lot of criticism.
In his own words, Ahmad Maslan said that if the consumer is unsure of the prices of goods, then they should postpone purchasing because when there are fewer purchases in the market, it will force the traders to ‘bring down the prices’.
Seriously??? IS THAT YOUR THEORY OF DEMAND AND SUPPLY?
HOW IN THE WORLD DID WE GET THIS GUY TO BE OUR FINANCE MINISTER WHEN HE CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND SIMPLE ECONOMIC CONCEPTS?
This is the very same guy who told students to cook their own meal because of the rising price of goods and to save costs. He recently stated that he is the ‘most hated person in Malaysia’ because of the GST.
Yes, that is right Mr Minister! If you continue making dumb statements like these, you might well be the most stupid one too!!
