Jomo Kwame Sundaram



Jomo Kwame Sundaram (born 11 December 1952), better known as Jomo KS, is a prominent Malaysian economist, who is currently serving as the United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA). He was also the founder chair ofInternational Development Economics Associates (IDEAs), and sat on the Board of the United Nations Research Institute For Social Development (UNRISD), Geneva. Jomo is a leading scholar and expert on the political economy of development, especially in Southeast Asia, who has authored over 35 monographs, edited over 50 books and translated 12 volumes besides writing many academic papers and articles for the media.He is on the editorial boards of several learned journals. In 2007, he was awarded the Wassily Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought.




Jomo is widely perceived to be an outspoken intellectual, with unorthodox non-partisan views. During the Asian financial crisis in 1997-98, Jomo was one of the earliest advocates of capital control measures, which then Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad eventually introduced to curb excessive currency speculation. However, when then Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim was imprisoned without trial under the Internal Security Act, Jomo publicly condemned the repression. In late 1998, he was sued for defa mation for 250 million ringgit by Vincent Tan, a Mahathir era billionaire, who settled out of court with Dow Jones in 2006.


 Biography


Named after two African nationalist leaders, Jomo was born in PenangMalaysia, soon after Jomo Kenyatta was incarcerated in late 1952. He spent his early years studying at Westlands Primary School (1959-63) and later atPenang Free School (1964-66). He later attended the Royal Military College (1967-70) where he was selected as Malaysia’s delegate to the World Youth Forum in 1970. He later attended Yale College (1970-73) on a full scholarship. After graduating from Yale with a degree in economics, Jomo went on to the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard to obtain his MPA in 1974. He lost his father in early 1974 and returned to teach at theUniversiti Sains Malaysia in mid-1974, before beginning work on his Ph.D. at Harvard which he completed in late 1977 while teaching at Yale after earlier teaching stints at Harvard. The title of his Ph.D. dissertation is Class Formation in Malaya: Capital, the State, and Uneven Development (1978).

Jomo returned to Malaysia to research his thesis in 1976 before joining the economics faculty of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in early 1977. Five years later, he moved to the University of Malaya, where he remained for more than 22 years. During this period, Jomo was British Academy Visiting Professor and later Visiting Fellow atCambridge (1987-88, 1991-92), Fulbright Visiting Professor at Cornell University (1993) and Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore. He was also founder director of the independent Institute of Social Analysis (INSAN) until late 2004, President of the Malaysian Social Science Association (1996-2000) and Convenor of the first and second International Malaysian Studies Conventions (1997, 1999). In January 2005, Jomo moved to New York City as UN Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development after retiring from the University of Malaya in 2004.

Jomo’s extensive writings have covered industrial policyprivatizationrent-seekingcronyismfinancial liberalization, macroeconomic policy impacts, economic distributionethnic relationsIslam and Malaysian history. His better known recent books include Privatizing Malaysia (Westview, 1995), Southeast Asia’s Misunderstood Miracle (Westview, 1997), Tigers in Trouble (Zed, 1998), Malaysia's Political Economy: Politics, Patronage and Profits (Cambridge University Press, 1999), Rents, Rent-Seeking and Economic Development (Cambridge University Press, 2000), Malaysian Eclipse (Zed, 2000) and The New Development Economics (Zed, 2005), Flat World, Big Gaps (2007).

 Personal Information


Jomo is married to Noelle Rodriguez, has three children, Nadia (born 1987), Emil (born 1989) and Leal (born 1990), and lives with his mother, who was denied the same visa status for ‘not being a close family member’.

 Quotations



  • "The truth may hurt and offend, but I don't deliberately go around trying to offend people." (The Star interview)



  • "We all talk about globalisation but … there is almost the assumption that somehow or other, greater international economic integration will somehow magically achieve growth and justice. There is very little evidence that this has happened, and there's no reason to assume that this is going to happen." (Sun interview)



  • "Previously, … many people were resigned to what is called TINA, there is no alternative. And people had sort of given up, thrown up their hands in despair. But now, I think there is recognition that … there are [better] alternatives and we must seriously explore those alternatives." (Sun interview)



  • "Mahathir was … articulate and … carved a certain niche for himself... Unfortunately, he was sullied by the cronies and sycophants around him and …for Malaysians, who were much more aware of this, there was a great deal of resentment. But I think we would be throwing the baby out with the bath water if we did not recognise his positive contributions." (Sun interview)
