Like in many other developing countries, poverty is not perverse in Malaysia. Poverty seems to be concentrated particularly in less productive, risk-prone subsistence farming, fishing, small-scale rubber and other small-scale unorganized economic activities, where investors from outside these sectors are not willing to invest. It is human poverty rather than income poverty that is more conspicuous by its presence in the poverty concentrated states where the study was conducted. Our findings suggest that lack of easy access to education and training, incentive structure, motivation and urge for material achievement combined with misperceptions that living in poverty is a part of life, rather than as something discouraged by Islam are the primary determinants to poverty in this country.
