(ed), Global Economic Integration and Inequality,
New Delhi, Serials Pub., 2007
While the globalization process is a multifarious and multidimensional
phenomenon, some of its most discernible and prominent aspects are economic
in character. The world economy has become more unequal and integrated globally.
That inequality is characterized by widening economic gaps between nations,
but not necessarily within nations. This leads some economists to suggest a
relationship between global economic integration and economic inequality.
Increasing globalization has probably mitigated the effects of inequality
between nations that participate in global markets. The nations that gained
the most from globalization are those poor countries that changed their
policies to exploit it, while the ones that gained the least did not, or
were too secluded to effectively revise economic and political policy.
Innovation and Technological Progress, Malaysian Economy
(ed) Rajah Rasiah,
Oxford Press, Chapter 6, forthcoming – This book will be out in July 2011 –
You may need to wait
This book provides a good reading on the Malaysian Economy. The
chapters were contributed by different scholars who specialized in
different issues of the Malaysian economy e.g. political, industrial
policy, social and others. My contribution is the chapter 6 of the book
that discusses the issues of innovation and technological progress
including S&T and industrial policy evolution in Malaysia. The book is
a perfect reading for those of you who are interested in knowing the progress
of the Malaysian economy. Most part of the book’s content is based on
current research findings of the scholars themselves.
