Inequality and Poverty in Malaysia: Measurement and Decomposition
This book is interesting not only because it is probably one of the more authoritative books looking at income inequality in Malaysia in the 1970s, but also because it does so within the objectives of the New Economic Policy launched at the beginning of the decade. On the the eve of Malaysia's Third Economic Plan, the author assesses the progress of the policy and the likelihood of its reaching its objectives. 371 pages with several tables, a list of references and an index.
