Malaysia's Economic Challenges: A Critical Analysis of the Malaysian Economy, Governance and Society

Front Cover
Asean Academic Press, 2003 - Business & Economics - 678 pages
Malaysia's economic development process and experience is unique. This book explores the country's economic policies: their implementation, impact and effectiveness, and provides the sorely needed economic literature on the Malaysian experience. By highlighting institutional weakness, the author recommends overdue reforms in the economic and banking sectors and in Malaysian public administration. By seeking to fathom the depths of the Asian financial crisis of 1997, he draws lessons from it and looks at ways to reshape the Malaysian economy in the tide of globalization, besides urging reforms and suggesting how both the Malaysian government and private sector can benefit from the challenges ahead. By combining an analytical approach with plain, communicative language, the author offers a cogent assessment of what Malaysia needs to do today to build a better tomorrow.
