Is Malaysia better than Indonesia?

Probably, but not by much according to Unspun. I have friend (Indonesian) who is absolutely nuts about Malaysia. But Indonesia’s actually been there first, during the Soeharto era, particularly 80s and 90s. We were stable, growing, hailed as an economic success. The price? 1998. So is Malaysia heading for a crash? Maybe, maybe not. But if you are an Indonesian that longs for the stability and certainty of the 80s, then you should go live in Malaysia.

  1. Note what P Bowring said last week in IHT. Msia has a thing or two to learn from big brod re pancasila, blah blah.

    Msia’s discrimination, like all things, is institutionalised and regulated. What you see is what you get?

    Just got back from Indonesia. Ya, the sense of freedom can be heady but I think I’d get less guilty living in Msia.

    PS Hey Ismangil, nobody saw 1998 coming! Msia survived, you guys didn’t and the prize is your freedom. At least the West can’t be jealous of your “success” anymore like they still do about ours (I think).
