Last week, a decision was made to suspend underwater search for flight MH370 after yielding zero results - this after 3 years since its disappearance on March 8th 2014. The search, it seems, is suspended pending new information and credible evidence in the future, despite the ATSB putting forward a suggestion to search a 25,000 sq km area just north of the seventh arc. For the everyday Malaysian, this means very little. But for the families and loved ones of passengers and crew on board that flight, their hopes for an answer as to what may have happened has ended. While some are in despair, there are some who want to continue the fight in searching for that answer. We speak to our guests about their reaction to the suspension and what they plan to do next.

Today we ask how does BR1M fit into the overall structure of policies and mechanism to deal with inequality and economic vulnerability? Also if there are moral hazards involved when democratically elected governments use such tools for electoral gain, or if such schemes are a disincentives to work or a source of dependency on the state.
