Naming Names: In defense of the public interest in Panang

 

It would be most interesting for those of us looking in from outside, to see a “Naming Names” chart, which identifies those individuals, political groups, companies, financial groups, captive media, and lobbies who from all appearances have taken over the governance process in Penang in a variety of vital areas, and moved the decision process over radically to a consistent, unsustainable, inequitable and inefficient model of environmental, economic, and social development.

Including of course all of those outside forces ready at the drop of a hat to support the lack of a strong model for a Sustainable Penang.

Anybody up for taking a first stab at this, which can then perhaps be extended and articulated as part of an open collaborative process?
