Malaysia is blessed with abundant natural resources, petroleum being the most precious. With income per capita of about US$9,970 and Petronas continuously providing an onerously generous 40 per cent to government revenues, Malaysia has all the essential ingredients to flourish.
It remains a mystery as to why and how this small country of 30 million people managed to shockingly assume the unsolicited title of the region's most unequal nation.

Have we the common people, appreciated how much wealth Malaysia has?
Do we have a clear picture as to how such wealth was spent?
In these essays, the author attempts to uncover how our oil and gas resources were developed and whether they have been exploited for or, rather, at the expense of the general public. The oil royalty dynamics are also explained step-by-step to provide a context to the on-going saga.
