• Residents of Malaysia have decided to pay the debt
At the beginning of May 2018 to the authorities in Malaysia a new government, which immediately faced with the problem of huge public debt (only in the last 15 years it has grown by 4 times). Where to find the necessary funds? Why not throw a cry and not to collect a little of all concerned? Imagine, but this tactic seems to be working: just one day Malaysian authorities have collected thus almost 3 million dollars.
It all started with the fact that 27-year-old malayziyka Shazairna Bhakti launched on GoGetFunding kraudfandingovuyu campaign to pay off the national debt of this Muslim country. The aim of the girl was to collect 100 thousand dollars, despite the fact that the Malaysian government debt exceeds $ 250 billion and is 808% of GDP.
A few days enthusiast has collected just over 3, 6 thousand dollars, but then suspended the campaign. However, this initiative drew the attention of the new Minister of Finance, and is now in the country set up a special public "Foundation hopes Malaysia" for donations, which Malaysians have begun to actively transfer funds. Only for the first day citizens sent contributions of more than 7 million ringgit, or about 2, 35 million dollars. Of course, while a drop in the sea, but a start.
