Dealing With Economic Anxiety As A Young Person

It seems like the younger generation has been dealing with a lot in the past couple of years, what with the pandemic taking over most of our lives. We're looking into one of them: Economic fears of Malaysia’s youth, as detailed in a study that finds almost 60% of young people worry that they will never be able to buy a home. First, we look into the findings of the survey, and what the pain points are. And then, we get into the policies we need to address these issues.
