Menu Rahmah not solution to high cost of living, say economists 

THE Menu Rahmah initiative to offer meals for only RM5 at selected food outlets should be a temporary solution and Putrajaya must find other ways to boost the economy and improve wages, economists said.

They said that while it was a good initiative the programme needs to be integrated with other measures to contain the high cost of living especially on food prices and the government should also look into increasing wages.
