In last 3 yeras #PKR dropped 45% to dollar compared to 3% & 16% drop in #Taka & #INR because when #Bangladesh & #India focused on improving economic fundamentals and let currencies adjust to market, #Pakistan focused on artificial overvaluation (2013-18) through ad hoc solutions.
As a result, they have improved economy at one hand and lower inflation, lower public debt at the other.

We lost on all three.

Exchange rate is a price. You can distort it, but it distorts whole economy. You can hold it for a while, but it gets back with higher costs.
Ignoring economic fundamentals added further to pressure on rupee. And it dropped and dropped more than what would have been if we focused on improving economic fundamentals (case of Bangladesh and India).

Afternoon warga #Pahang!
Hari ni kome ke #Jengka untuk sebahagian liputan #Felda.

Pahang ada jumlah peneroka paling ramai dan kawasan Felda terbanyak di Malaysia. Selama ini orang Felda menyumbang kepada faktor negeri ini dianggap kubu kuat #MalaysiaMemilih
Persoalannya, adakah #Felda masih lagi kubu kuat #BN?

Fact 1: 12/14 kerusi Parlimen dan 27/42 kerusi negeri #Pahang ada kawasan #Felda

Fact 2: Peneroka gen pertama berumur 65tahun ke atas. 80% penyokong #BN tetapi generasi kedua & ketiga? Mereka lebih ramai #MalaysiaMemilih
Di antara 27 kerusi negeri #Pahang, semua dimenangi #BN kecuali DUN #Bilut #Ketari #Sabai di #Bentong dan #Triang di #Bera. Ini adalah perkara baru.

Namun kita lihat juga populasi bangsa di sini. Triang, Ketari, Sabai dan Bilut adalah mixed seats. #MalaysiaMemilih
