Malaysia: Narrow Minded Political Group

Shianux writes about the lack of basic economics knowledge among the UMNO political party members in Malaysian province of Johor. Johor is the province that borders Singapore. Johor UMNO is asking the federal government to cancel all projects like the proposed bullet train between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore that might (according to Johor UMNO) benefit Singapore more. The blogger feels that Johor UMNO is being selfish as it fears that Johor would loose if other parts of Malaysia has direct transport links to Singapore.
