Fiscal Policy and Inequality in Malaysia
Wee Chong Hui
The author demonstrates how inequality has increased in Malaysia in recent years as a result of fiscal policy, whether intentionally or not. For example corporation tax where wealthy shareholders bear the biggest burden has dropped from 40% in 1994 to 28% in 1998. Similarly fiscal distributions, with the exception of an inadequately funded health system, has done little to alleviate disparities either between regions or between high and low income earners. 227 pages with an index, figures, tables, a bibliography and an index.
