Hello, we need to understand what really the meaning of external debt. Country like USA is even their debt reach trillion dollars. All this figure need to be balanced with GDP, Current Account Balance, Income per Capita. It is a figure that will compare us with others.

So this is how Najib using borrowed money to give goodies like BRIM1 &2, RM250 for youth who earns RM3000 and below,RM200 cash vouchers for students of higher education,RM100 for secondary and primary school students,free tyres(to a value of RM520) for each taxi driver,RM200 cash vouchers for purchase of smart handphone,RM5000 discount for purchase of EXORA car for private taxi drivers.
Wow,never in the history of this country that so much was given out by the govt and why is it now and within such short spell of time and are all these sustainable in the longer period?
