Abstract

The “Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia” program or BR1M was introduced by the Barisan National Government in 2012 to ease the citizen’s high cost of living and to narrow income inequality. This study found that there are no significant associations between the perception of Malaysian youths on whether BR1M is a good policy for Malaysia with the ethical values such as idealism, relativism, religiosity and machiavellianism. However, the perception of Malaysian youths on whether BR1M is a good policy for Malaysia is found to be significantly associated with material values. This paper provided some insights on the perceptions of young Malaysians on this issue. It is also in line with recent calls by leaders in the government, society and academia on the need to encourage Malaysian youths particularly graduates and undergraduates to actively channel their ideas on important issues to help develop our country.
