Inflation: How Bad, and What Can We Do?

Inflation, inflation, inflation! We hear that word on the news, from angry shoppers at the supermarket, and when discussing the (seemingly) perpetually bad economy over some teh tarik. But how bad is it, really? We ask economist Geoffrey Williams to demystify some stats and numbers to give us a better idea of where Malaysia is inflation-wise, and what can be done to fix the issue of rising costs.
