    Abstract

    Kajian ini meminjamkan dan mengadakan analise perhubungan kewangan antara Kerajaan Pusat dengan kerajaan nageri, terutamanya kerajaan Pulau Pinang, pada tahun 1960-72. Kesan perhubungan kewangan terhadap kerajaan negeri dibincang secara kritik. Subjek perhubungan antara kerajaan di Malaysia sering di lupai para akademik dan badan-badan kerajaan. Jarang sekali terdapat tulisan-tulisan ekonomi atau kajian keatas topik ini. Kurangnya penyelidikan dan minatnya dalam bidang ini, yang mana saya fikir adalah punca kapada masalah membiayi kerajaan nageri, telah mendorongkan kajian ini. This study adopts an ex-post analysis of the Federal-State fiscal relationship in Malaysia, over the period of 1060-1972, with specific reference and emphasis on Penang. The impact of this relationship on the states' financial positions is discussed critically. The subject of intergovernmental relations in Malaysia has long been neglected by Malaysian academicians and government bodies. There is hardly any economic literature or studies made on this topic. The lack of research in this area and a special interest in the subject which I believe touches the 'root' of the problems of financing state governments have prompted this study to be undertaken.
