While, at the time of publication, Malaysia has become infamous because of the 1MDB scandal, the author reminds readers that the country has a track record in this respect. Bumiputra Malaysia Finance Limited (BMF) was a financial vehicle set up in the mid 1960s purportedly to promote the participation of Bumiputera, those officially designated indigenous to the country, in the economy. While BMF only lost a paltry RM2.5billion compared to 1MDB's losses of at least twenty times that amount, the author finds interesting parallels and contrasts and reflects on how the country's political and financial culture has developed, if at all, since the first scandal. 439 pages.
