It’s federal government Budget time again! In the weeks leading up to 28 Sept – the day our Prime Minister tables Budget 2013 – REFSA will release a series of vibrant and easy-to-digest infographics to illuminate fiscal choices and crucial decisions made on our behalf.


Debt isn’t all bad, but it should bring us returns, instead of making us worse off. Our all-new instalment of “Pre-Budget 2013: The Rakyat’s Guide” strips down the layers of Malaysia’s deficit to unveil whether our hefty borrowing is working for us, or crippling us.

  1. Really liked the infographic and in particuler the emphasis on personal debt and the potential legacy we are leaving future generations.

    The way we view debt and how we manage debt needs to be changed fundamentally and it needs to be driven at Government level to effect the substantive shift needed to change the debt culture across the world.
