Ethics, Morals and Values: A Malaysian Experience in Alternative Development

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Development, both economic and social, has been uppermost in the minds of the Malaysian fathers of independence in the process of nation building. Although the nation inherited the British systems of liberal democracy and capitalism, it also inherited many of the problems it had created earlier among which were a nation divided by race, culture and religion and a society divided by disparities in economic functions, income levels and social standings. Thus the main functions of nation building have since then been that of creating national unity and redressing economic and social disparities.
