Who does this help?

The Malaysian government tries to control the price of several "strategic" commodities ("boneless imported mutton excluding thighs"?), a practice that does not benefit merchants and probably does not benefit consumers (when those commodities end up out of stock). I DO see an advantage for the 3,400 enforcement officers and monitoring personnel charged with sticking their noses into other people's business. What a waste.
