What a party hardy short sighted university trained jerk who stunted his country development economically & politically.
He no better than Kardashians or Paris Hilton.
He's less sympathetic than The Great Gastby with his complex wheeling dealing & gaming the financial system
Nice twist ending to rain his parade!

Revolving around the "audacious fraud" of 1MDB, one enters the world of extreme money, even if ill-gotten, and waddles in the luscious power generated by scattering it about. That it encompassed perhaps the world's best investment bank just adds to the humor to the whole thing. As the song goes, "All that money makes such a succulent sound" fits this travesty. Reading of one night of the bluster and filth involved, even though hidden by the mask of billions of dollars, was enough for me. Then find your "friend" running up tabs of $300,000 in a one week stay at the Bel-Air Hotel sealed the deal; I need to find out nothing more about these people. End of book, goodbye. P.S. However, I am vulnerable to attending your party for a modest quarter-of-a-million.
