  • Malaysia's overarching economic objective is to achieve developed country status by the year 2020. On the back of sluggish global economic condition and tight fiscal space, the economy will need to grow by a stable and rapid rate over the next few years. Currently, macroeconomic policies in Malaysia follow the conventional model based on the risk-transfer paradigm. Over the next decade, the potential for risk sharing as an alternative to risk transfer is expected to grow rapidly. As pointed out by a number of scholars and researchers, economies can be made more resilient to shocks by adopting financing methods that limit risk transfer (interest rate based debt contracts) and allow gre...

  • Malaysia needs more fiscal space to manoeuver and safeguard growth under current challenging economic condition. The current persistent deficit and high leverage has raised concerns about the sustainability of Malaysia's fiscal position. Amid the above concerns, measures that have been taken by the Government thus far; mainly in the form of subsidy rationalization and the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax (GST); although required, have not been popular among the masses, and ineffective if the Government does not reign in its operating expenditure and borrowing. Increasing borrowing further via bond issuance or long-term government borrowing increases vulnerability, adds inter...
