I was prime minister for far too long, says Mahathir

29 Aug

“To People who retire, please dont just go to sleep and stay at home. Do something because if you are interested in doing things, you will live longer,” Dr Mahathir said to laughter and applause from the crowd.

Responding to a question from a man named Pong, who asked about his recipe for success in turning around Malaysias economy during the 1997-1998 financial crisis, Dr Mahathir said: “If you keep your money under your pillow, the economy will never grow.

“But if you spend the money and somebody makes a profit, the government is always very happy because 28% of the profit goes back to the government.”
