This paper discusses the political economy of Malaysia. The paper does not discuss social beliefs and policies, but rather presents a Keynesian style, where the federal government intervenes on the market in order to correct its malfunctions. The paper examines some of the policies implemented by the Malaysian government aimed towards economic development programs, such as agricultural, commercial, transportation, or communications.

From the Paper:

"Petroleum was discovered off the East Coast of the Malayan Peninsula and oil production simply took off in the mid-70s, as the oil prices raised after the oil crisis of 1973 and, subsequently, the second oil crisis of 1979. As net producers and exporters, the Malaysians were on the net receivers? side and the country has become one of the most important oil exporters in the world. The main importer of Malayan oil has been Japan, a country lacking natural resources."
