Abstract

In Malaysia, the development of a Malay business community has been promoted by the government since the launching of the new economic policy in 1971. This article seeks to explain the process of business development in new townships of Peninsular Malaysia, in particular the role of capital in the formation and growth of small businesses and assess the effectiveness of the state in seeking to create a Malay business community. The present structure of capital circulation in the new townships which tends to favour the large capitalist sector provides little prospects for the growth of small businesses and thus few prospects of for Malay participation in business.
