Why Malaysia needs a new Finance Minister : Not Meant To Be

is a song from Theory of A  Deadman, the hard rockers from Canada.

Malaysia needs a new Finance Minister,  one who is fresh from the fight, and who knows how to win an economic street fight.

It's never enough to say I care
But I'm caught between what you wanted from me
And knowing if I give that to ya I might just disappear
Nobody wins when everyone's losing
It's like one step forward and two steps back

Why am I shocked?  Well it was just two months ago, Bloomberg told the world that the economy playbook for Covid 19, was written in MALAYSIA in the last CENTURY.
PS if the URL does not work just key in Covid 19 economic, playbook written in Malaysia in your Google search engine

We did that by taking risk. Countries like Indonesia and India are pushing economic boundaries and theories to the limit,  taking cue from Malaysia's defiance on those two nights in September 1998, when we defied and then won over the international critics.

We cannot have at this point, a Finance Minister, who plays by what others are doing.  
These are unusual times we are living in.  If this was a UCF match,  the last thing we want in our corner is a fancy talker like Connor McGregor.   We need a warrior like  Khabib!!!
