Restructuring the Malaysian Economy: Development and Human Resources

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Jul 29, 1999 - Business & Economics - 328 pages
An authoritative study of the Malaysian economy and labour market. Malaysia has enjoyed an enviable growth record over twenty-five years which few nations can match, and has also been keen to judge her performance against non-growth criteria of poverty eradication and national unity following the emergence of racial conflict in 1969. There are many lessons for policy-makers elsewhere of this active approach to poverty eradication and social restructuring while generating rapid growth, which stands in sharp contrast to laissez-faire orthodoxy.
