Malaysia can still be a high-income nation if its men remain the main breadwinners and its women focused on raising children, Islamist group Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) argued amid concerns over the effect of youth marriages on the economy. The group said while men can be “high achievers”, women should contribute to the nation in a way that “best suits them” instead of joining the workforce, although it did not elaborate on how to achieve that. “A high income nation must not rely on women as the major contributor but rather men should lead the workforce and put their biggest effort in shaping the nation,” said Dr Nur Farrah Nadia Najib, who heads the group’s family and society bureau, on its website.

(Too bad the bastard didn’t succeed.) Yup, both incidents were perpetuated by Chinese people from mainland China.

Over the years, how many times have we made new financial resolutions only to have them fail miserably within approximately 72 hours of the new year? Similar to our physical well-being, good financial health requires a conscientious long-term commitment rather than a one-time wide-sweeping transformation.
