Public Finances in Malaya and Singapore 
CT Edwards

The purpose of the book is to provide a history and analysis of Malaysia's and Singapore's public finances from independence to shortly after Singapore left the Malaysian Federation. (Despite the book's title, the book does cover a short period after the Malaysian Federation was founded.) Having done that, the author makes suggestions as to how both Governments can raise more taxes so as to achieve a more equitable distribution of the tax burden. In turn, the author proposes how the fiscal system can produce a growing and stable economy. Good Hardback. First Edition. 386 pages with figures, tables, a bibliography and an index.
