Malaysia is blessed with abundant natural resources, petroleum being the most precious. With income per capita of about USD 9,970 and PETRONAS continuously providing an onerously generous 40% to government revenue, Malaysia has all the essential ingredients to flourish. 

 As such, it remains a mystery as to why and how this small country of 30 million people managed to shockingly assume the unsolicited title of the region’s most unequal nation. 

 Have we the common people, appreciated how much wealth Malaysia has and how such wealth was spent? 

 In these essays, the author attempts to uncover how our oil & gas resources were developed and whether they have been exploited for or rather, at the expense of the general masses. The oil royalty dynamics is also explained step-by-step to provide context to the on-going saga.

 How does the exploitation of this fast-depleting resource play a pivotal role in the multiple socio-economic realities we face -ranging from household debts to income inequality, an abundant of foreign workers, low FDI, stagnant wages and poor education standards in all international ranking? Should Malaysia sign the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA)? 

 What are the Myths of the Rich and Poor? Is Malaysia a High Income Nation with Low Income Rakyat? A Hollow Economy? How can education alleviate the poor? Encounter failures inherent in the education system and discover the spirit of education volunteerism as possible ways out.

 And such a riposte to the current malaise in education begs the question, Is school a betrayal to education itself? Is our national education a failure? Can reading and critical thinking revolutionise Malaysians? Should we teach Philosophy in universities? Is time ripe to replace our current national philosophy of education with Love; and free education?

 The author’s search for enlightening answers to some of these hard pressing questions gave birth to this book, where a mixture of ideas, ideals, and critical proposals coalesce into one. Deliberations in this book are hardly the author’s alone - it is humbly shared in the hopes that they can be expounded further through public domain. This has to be a collective effort by all Malaysians. And to that end - requiro!
