Overview

From colonial times until the late 1970s the driving force of the Peninsular Malaysia economy was the production and export of primary products—first tin, than rubber and timber, and finally petroleum. In the 1980s export-oriented industrial production took over as the leading sector economy, enabling Malaysia to become a world-class economic performer. This volume shows how a small country with a modest resource endowment used a strong political will to achieve a remarkable transformation. In the process, the contributors detail how the lives of ordinary people have been transformed in the light of Malaysia's economic success.
