Quick Fixes Won't Cure Malaysia's Ills

While the jury is still out on what kind of person Anwar Ibrahim really is, the problems here in Malaysia are political inertia, the worsening of public discontent, and the increasing number of bailouts of undeserving but politically connected companies ("The feud," Asian Cover Story, Nov. 9). Real reforms are nonexistent, and suppression of the public is increasingly felt. As a Malaysian, I honestly could not care less about Anwar. I am more worried about my country taking quick fixes in a global recession that could last for years.
