Look beyond inflation to tackle cost of living issues

TO be fair, Economy Minister Rafizi Ramli, in his latest press conference, did mention that his ministry will be working with other ministries to come out with new policies to stave off inflationary pressure on food, aside from calling consumers to be more vigilant in eating out.

It would perhaps be more conducive for the minister to let the cabinet properly deliberate and decide collectively on how to truly tackle  cost of living issues before coming out and being ridiculed for telling consumers that they are the drivers of inflation.
