Income Inequality in Malaysia: Examining the Labour Income Links
Against this backdrop, our paper makes the argument that the missing piece in this narrative is the labour income dispersion. We show that the effects of labour income on income inequality in Malaysia depend more on the labour income dispersion than the labour income share.
By bringing the labour income dispersion into the discourse, we put forward the case that Malaysia is not at an inevitable trade off—or a zero sum game, when it comes to the policy options of technological upgrading and reducing income inequality. We suggest to focus more on the distributional aspects of labour income as a policy goal, as the labour income share is neither a good indicator of income inequality, nor a good driver to reduce it.

Designing Out Fatness – The Citymaker
malaysia has the same nonsensical blame-the-victim attitude towards fat people as the us does. If you have the money (for the right foods and a gym) then you might become healthier. if not, too bad.

Eg: they have a 'sugary drink' tax that doesn't cover bubble tea or coffee shop coffees.

Chinese embassy invites Malaysians to visit Xinjiang to counter 'fake news' on Uighur treatment > Friday, 27 Dec 2019
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians are invited to visit Xinjiang as the Chinese embassy hits out at "distorted reports flooded in social media" over the country's treatment of its Uighur Muslims.

"I sincerely welcome all Malaysian friends, especially Muslim friends, to visit Xinjiang and to discover a beautiful, peaceful and prosperous real Xinjiang with your own eyes.

"I feel regret and indignant about the distorted reports and gratuitous accusations flooded in social media," said Chinese embassy spokesperson, Tang Tang.

He added that problems related to Xinjiang were China's internal affairs.

"These are not human rights, ethnicity or religion issues, but issues of anti-terrorism, anti-separatism and de-radicalization.

"Chinese government safeguards the freedom of religious belief of all citizens according to the law, including Uighur minority," he said.

Earlier on Friday (Dec 27), two NGOs handed over a memorandum to the Chinese embassy here over the issue.

Members of the Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (Abim) and Hizbut Tahrir gathered outside the embassy on Jalan Ampang around 2.30pm

Their representatives tried to hand over the memorandum but as no embassy representative was available to receive it, the memorandum was left inside the embassy's letterbox instead.

Abim president Muhammad Faisal Abdul Aziz said this was the second memorandum the group had sent to the embassy on the issue.

"We hope the Chinese government will listen to the voices of both the Malaysian and international community, to stop the persecution of the Uighur Muslims and all other minority religions in China," he said.
