The Malaysian Estates Staff Provident Fund 1947-2017
In this book, Jerayaj C. Rajarao provides a detailed and compelling account of the first provident fund established in Malaya through co-operation between plantation companies, the All Malayan Estates Staff Union and the then colonial government of Malaya. This account also:
  • situates the MESPF in the broader political, economic and social situation in colonial and post-colonial Malaya and later Malaysia,
  • highlighting the impact of colonial capitalism and labour regulation,
  • the importance of immigration,
  • the growth of state intervention in the economy, transformations in the plantation industry
  • the impacts of global financial crises on the MESPF.
As the first history of MESPF, The Malaysian Estates Staff Provident Fund 1947-2017, also offers a systematic account of its development, tracing its growth and expansion alongside the rubber and oil palm industries that have been so crucial to the Malaysian economy
