Price Hike >>>

Barang Naik will crash BN if price hike issue not contained

Everywhere I go, first complaint from the grassroots I heard is price hike, second is corruption, third is crime and fourth is illegal immigrant.

Orang kampung told me that Malaysia is a rich nation, but rakyat have to suffer pains because a big portion of our money go into the pockets of corrupt politicians.

BN does not need high paid foreign think tanks and consultants to tell them what grouses from the people, just walk around the wet markets, the Malay villages, the new villages, the estates and the flats.

Barang Naik has be solved from the supply and demand perspectives.

Supply side

1. Low productivity in the food production is mainly due to BN crutch policy for Malay.

Ask yourself why Chinese paddy fields in Kedah or Selangor have higher yield than Malay farmers?

The answer is Chinese farmers put more efforts to take care their crops.

2. Open up idle agriculture land to all investors. More than a million hectares agriculture land in Malaysia are grown with lalang (miscanthus) and bushes.

3. Open up all food production sectors like demolish license requirement for deep sea fishing.

4. Pay local workers with higher salary which is tied to productivity.

5. Distribute coupons to needed families, the money must from subsidies paid to IPPs, should not from future money or borrowed money.

6. Grow own food in the backyard and garden like Green book project in 70s.

Demand side

1. Reduce foreign workers to less than one million. Present 8.2% or 2.32 million foreigners in Malaysia are draining out local food resources. On top of that, they are at least another 2 million illegal immigrants.

These 4-5 million foreigners are competing with locals for food, jobs, housing, girls, etc.

Low value added foreigners have to deport back to their origin countries without mercy.

BN does not need to hire Mckinsey consultants on how to solve Barang Naik problem, I can give more free advices if needed.

Tan Tee Beng still think a McDonald Value Big Mac Meal can be bought with RM4.
He is living in the past as he is oblivious to price hike and continue to harp on old issues.
He should therefore engage Prof KKK to talk about the good old historical issues, twisted or not.

‘Barang Naik’ is interestingly explained in a pdf file in this site:

Aries says:

One reason for the low padi yield in Malaysia is that the farmers (majority malays) prefer to ‘gadai’ the fertilizers given by the government for quick gain. This is the same with the fishermen who sold the subsidized diesel to foregin fishermen instead of going for bigger harvest.

My friend is a son-in-law for a Chinese farmer in Kedah.

I was told the main reason Malay farmers’ yield is low because of dummy paddy overgrown. The kind of no yield paddy grasses have to be removed manually and it’s a very tedious task.

Chinese farmers put more efforts to pluck out dummy paddy grasses from the field. The yield difference can up to 30% between Chinese and Malay formers from a same place.

Sekinchan Chinese formers have the highest yield in Malaysia. If 90% paddy farmers in Malaysia can achieve the same yield, no rice import is needed.
