Pleasant Surprise.. Or Is It?


This has GOT to be the best news I’ve heard ever since my Supers told me that my research questions were ok. Looking at it from an economic perspective, heck, there’s just so many ‘textbook answers’ to go around. The extra income that public servants receive will undoubtedly expedite their spending, which in turn, is just what the fiscal policy is aiming for in accelerating further our economic growth of 5.6%.. Or, this higher pay will boost the public sector’s delivery systems, hence, in line with the Government’s wish to increase efficiency (quote borrowed from Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting).. Of course there’s always the political side to it all, “Oh this one is just timed for the election lah..”

Despite all that, I know I shouldn’t be saying this, especially being an academician and a ‘serious postgrad student’, no less.. But hey, this is definitely a fine time to checkout a new car.

Any ideas?
