It is with no doubt that generally expenditure has decreased. In fact, according to the Department of Statistics (DOS), Malaysia’s average household spending has decreased from RM6,317 a month to RM2,813 a month since the MCO began.

The figures see a 55% drop which consists more so of the ‘upper-class’ as compared to the ‘middle’ and ‘lower’ income people. Based on research, the spending of higher-income citizens dropped by 60%, as compared to 48% (middle-income) and 41% (lower-income).

I know what you’re thinking… “Surely the T20 who can spend more is able to reduce their spending also during MCO”. Are you’re right!
