Marmite was one of my favourite childhood spreads. It’s so good on toast and with twigglets. Don’t you just love it?
Sketch of the day no 1201 in my moleskine sketchbook is of a jar of Marmite. Yummy 😁

You’re welcome. GINI coefficient is a very powerful tool. 🙂
April 5, 2019 at 10:06
I’m glad it’s on the right track. It has somewhat improved since I’ve lived there.
April 5, 2019 at 10:06
Thanx for the economics lesson. I appreciate it 😁
March 22, 2019 at 01:11
It is. Malaysia seems to be on the right track. of course, one has to be careful always, but the performance of the country is very commendable.

The GINI coefficient measures the distribution of income. A GINI of zero, means that everyone earns the same amount. A GINI of 1 would mean all income goes to one person. Europe has a fairly “equal” distribution of income, with a GINI of .30 approx.
Here’s a fairly simple definition:
(I love your curiosity)

That’s pretty good news then.

What is the gini is coefficient. Iove learning knew things 🙏

Just checked the GINI coefficient which measures equality or disparity of distribution of income in a country. France is at 0.327; Malaysia at 0.372. Which is very good. As an example: a perfect distribution where all would have the same income GINI would be 0. if inly one person received all the country’s income, GINI would be one. Europe is generally around, .30. Developing countries tend to have a lot of disparity, with GINI as high as .60. Compliments again. 🙂

Average? Ok. Median in France is about 1600 Euros. But then GDP per capita is 38,000 Euros. Just rechecked. Even so, Malaysia’s performance is very commendable. lemme see the Gini Coefficient. 🙂

One of the (many) reasons Malaysia impressed me so much when we went. Growth has been impressive.
March 17, 2019 at 12:06
I think the disparity in wealth is huge cos the average salary is eur600
March 17, 2019 at 12:03
Really. I didnt know that 🤔
March 11, 2019 at 23:53
Could be. But the results are there: Malaysia’s GDP per capita is not very far from France any more. 🙂
(True, France has been flat for the past ten years…)
March 11, 2019 at 10:22
I think could be we were late to the game

And I suspect it is one of the reasons of Asia’s growth in the past 30-40 years. Which is not happening in other parts.

Yes we bring tradition to the modern times!!! It’s not a dead thing
March 6, 2019 at 20:03
Maybe. Or it may be a strong sense of tradition. The older I get, the more I realize that “tradition” (so criticized in many corners) is what makes us who we are. Which is basically where we come from. 🙂
And tradition is not at odds with progress. “Fusion” is precisely that: the fusion of tradition with modernity. When you celebrate the jade emperor, you probably have a cell phone in a pocket of your (lovely) traditional dress. (Which suited you perfectly)

We were just slow to open the market
March 5, 2019 at 19:21
Yeah. I’m sure. It’s one thing I noticed in Asia in general and in Penang in particular, you guys have strong “local” brands with a lot of history. here we tend to be flooded with American brands. 😦
March 5, 2019 at 09:24
It’s a strong brand because it starts from young
March 4, 2019 at 19:21
Reading the comments it does look like a strong brand. Lovers and adversaries. I will have to try it next time. Cheerio.
March 4, 2019 at 19:20
Childhood brands are good memory detonators. 🙂
But I don’t know that brand. Must be local or regional.
(Or even British?) 😉

You are in the marmite hater camp. There’s no middle ground with Marmite. I love how certain foods split people into distinct groups while others are less defined.
March 2, 2019 at 13:43
I know people love this stuff, but I can’t get past the smell. Love the drawing though 😉 Always. ❤
March 1, 2019 at 15:13
Yes definitely an acquired taste. I’m not gonna lie.
March 1, 2019 at 01:36
Welllll, i only tried it once and was not impressed… tasted like salty paste to me…guess it is an acquired taste!
February 28, 2019 at 14:48
Thanx! Ya I realise there is no middle point for marmite
February 28, 2019 at 10:58
Yes, I am a LOVE it person…..love the sketch 🙂
