Abstract: Why are the Malays lagging behind in their pursuit of a First-World standard of living in Singapore? Our project explores the lives of the Malay underclass, four decades on, since the term “Malay problem” was coined. We explore how this post-65 group, subjected to government policies, still remains in the bottom rung of the community. Despite being accorded a ‘special position’ by the Singapore Constitution, the Malays are the racial group with lowest social mobility.
