KUALA LUMPUR: While Malaysians are satisfied overall with government approaches to bring affordable property to the people, the majority still feel that a more targeted approach could be taken to address this pressing gap in the property market, according to the PropertyGuru Consumer Sentiment Survey H2 2018. The sentiment comes amid widespread perceptions that property prices remain high in the country, with unfavourable market timing, and lack of capital and good financial options also cited as challenges by property seekers. PropertyGuru Malaysia country manager Sheldon Fernandez said in 1Q 2013, 93% of participants in the PropertyGuru Consumer Sentiment Survey expressed dissatisfaction with housing initiatives available at the time. “This has decreased to 63% in the recent H2 2018 survey, with satisfaction rising from 7% to 22% over a similar timeframe.

AKRON, Ohio — Colin Robertson wonders why he pays federal taxes on the $18,000 a year he makes cleaning carpets, while the tech giant Amazon got a tax rebate. His concerns about a tilted economic playing field recently led Robertson to join the Akron chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. At a gathering this month, as members discussed Karl Marx and corporate greed over chocolate chip cookies, it was not long before talk turned to income inequality and how the government helps the wealthy avoid taxes. “One of the benefits of taxation is taking it and using it for the collective good,” said Robertson, 25, comparing his minimal income to the roughly $150 billion net worth of Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s chief executive and the world’s richest person. “He could be taxed at 99.9 percent and still have millions left over,” Robertson said, “and I’d be homeless.” It is a topic that several presidential candidates, led by Sens. … [Read more...] about News $0 corporate tax for Amazon, profitable giants sickens US voters

I realised that something I had not expected was holding me back: Prejudice.Camels were first domesticated for their milk in 3,000 BC, according to the UN, and the liquid is a staple in parts of the Middle East and North Africa, where it can be cheaper than cow’s milk. Now it is gaining popularity with producers and customers elsewhere, from health nuts in America to farmers in sub-Saharan Africa reckoning with climate change.The milk is low in lactose, allowing it to be digested by people with a dairy intolerance and cutting into the market share of nut milks.Touted by fanatics for its alleged medical benefits and by … [Read more...] about Camel milk could be the future of dairy.
