Start of the week (20th - 23rd of January)

In light of the special address made by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak on strengthening Malaysia?s economy following changes in the global economic landscape, our editors once again take the seat to discuss issues related to the drop in oil prices, the cut in Government spending and other cost-cutting measures to ensure financial stability in the country. Also discussed in this week?s Start of the Week is how the situation surrounding former finance minister Tun Daim Zainuddin can be related to lessons from the movie ?Godfather 2? (?Keep your friends close and your enemies closer?); the salvage of AirAsia Indonesia Flight QZ8501, and the latest updates on Malaysia?s flood situation and the Korean Air heiress fiasco on macadamia nuts.
