Abstract

Few economists in Malaysia have pursued their academic career with anchors solidly planted into the plight of the people. Royal Professor Ungku Aziz was a rare mind who achieved intellectual distinction for his tiring efforts to theorise and study poverty in Malaysia, which led to the government’s strategies strongly mirroring his recommendations. This article analyses five of the major contributions he made that emerging scholars can look up to as examples of exemplary intellectual leadership, as well as, academic scholarship.
