Seminar: Malaysian Capitalism Amongst Diverse Asian Capitalisms: A New Theoretical Framework
About the Seminar
The seminar provides an analysis of Malaysia’s capitalism from the perspective of the Régulation framework (Boyer, 1990; Amable, 2003; Boyer et al, 2012). The framework is used to assess two major changes since 2009, namely, ambivalence of the changing State-Business ties and the China-oriented shift of international integration. In the seminar, special attention will be given to institutional hierarchy and institutional complementarities. Findings presented in the seminar are derived from an on-going research project attempting to assess the varieties of capitalism in Asia using methodologies in new political economy that can tackle the institutional diversity of capitalisms in very distinctive socio-economic context.
