Poverty And Inequality: Malaysia A Success Story?

Poverty and inequality have been major themes of the past year, with official statistics being called into question. Roshan discuses these issues with economist Martin Ravallion, they get into the differences between the two issues as well as the NEP, the situation in Malaysia and the importance of education and healthcare when it comes to social welfare. Martin also talks about wealth taxation and his skepticism of it in the longer term.
