An Analysis of Literacy in Cooperative Economics and the Pancasila Economy in Malang


As current and future economic actors, the younger generation needs to be provided with a complete understanding of the economic system that should be enforced in Indonesia. Until now, the implementation of the economic system has not met the expectations of the mandate of the 1945 Constitution. One of the mandates affirmed in the Constitution is the role of cooperatives that play an important role in the national economy. But as reform progresses, the role of cooperatives has deteriorated compared to the previous period. This descriptive qualitative research was conducted with students of the Faculty of Economics in Malang Raya, to determine their literacy in cooperative economics and the Pancasila economy. The results showed that the literacy of the students was good.
