Last Monday, the Sun published a report on food stamp. They interviewed me for that report. The authors of the report quoted me as “a member of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and is responsible for its economic studies arm.”[1]

While I spoke to one of the authors on behalf of IDEAS, I would like to clarify that I am not responsible for the “economic studies arm” of the institute.

[1] — Hafiz Noor Shams, a member of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and is responsible for its economic studies arm, said: ”Food stamps are not the best idea, but not the worst either. It is a short-term solution to an immediate need.” [Pauline Wong. Michelle Chun. Experts: Food stamps only ‘short-term solution’. The Sun. August 22 2011]

    Speaking about IDEAS, I was saddened to hear about Tunku’s last article in the Sun.
    I wonder why he stopped.
    Great ideas, articulated well.
    The best part is his recollection of historical events.
