  • Islamic economics and finance derived its axioms from Shariah. Irrespective of the faith convictions, Islamic economics and finance has gained momentum in the world today. It is reported that by 2024, the global Islamic finance industry assets will reach USD$3.69 trillion and in 2019, it is estimated that Muslims have spent USD$2.02 trillion on halal sectors inspired by ethical consumption needs while it is anticipated that by 2024, this amount will reach to USD$2.4 trillion at a five-yaer cumulative annual growth rate of 3.1% (Dinar Standard, 2020). It is also forecasted that there will be 8% decrease in global Muslim spending in 2020 due to pandemic on sectors covered by report publ...

  • COVID-19 is a black swan event that has turned back the global poverty clock. Millions have lost their jobs overnight and have no way to find employment due to the lockdown measures taken to adequately deal with the pandemic and save the humankind from being extinct. The first case of COVID-19 in India was reported on 30 January 2020 and on 24 March 2020, the Prime Minister of the country announced that the country is going for full lockdown. This caused disruption in all major economic activities and led to increase in unemployment causing extreme poverty as no immediate financial helping hand was offered to them. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), it is expecte...

  • Malaysia is a multi religious and a multi ethnic society with a plural legal structure. The banking system of country is essentially dual in nature and hence, there are two different sets of legal framework working simultaneously. Today, the Islamic Banking system which emerged in 1983 has levelled up to the conventional banking system which had rooted itself in the society a long time ago. Whether we believe it or not there are challenges and clashes at hand due to the existence of the dual system in the society and they need to be addressed properly, so that the clashes between these two types of banking system can be minimized. There are several quarrels between conventional and I...

  • Islamic banking is booming in the world today. Though Malaysia adopted Islamic banking in 1983, today it is the leader of this industry. The success of the Islamic banking industry depends on the nature and the behavior of the instruments utilised. Generally there are three kinds of instruments offered in an Islamic bank. They are debt based instruments, equity based instrument and lease based instrument. The most sizzling debate over the industry player is on finding out the types of instrument which are closer to the teachings of Shariah. The objective of this paper is to deliberate over this issue and to find out the reality about this.

  • Historically, the non-profit institution of waqf has played a remarkable role in developing the Islamic societies as well as in assisting the Islamic state in providing social welfare services in the health and educational sectors, supplying the basic infrastructure, providing jobs, enhancing commercial and business activities, providing food for the hungry, shelter for the poor and the needy, in addition to supporting the agricultural and industrial sectors, without incurring any cost to the government. However, this positive role played by waqf deteriorated since the end of the 19th century and has continued to deteriorate to the present time.

  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E. (1992)

  • The U(1) Kac-Moody character functions are derived from a path integral expression. It is shown that point-split regularization of the Virasoro generator also exactly regularizes the path integral. An exact derivation of the Weyl-Kac denominator is then given for an arbitrary Lie group using the semiclassical approximation and the results of the U(1) calculation.

  • Authors: Baaquie, Belal E.; Yang, Cao; Ada, Lau; Pan, Tang (2012)

  • This paper develops a model to describe the unequal time correlation between rate of returns of different stocks. A non-trivial fourth order derivative Lagrangian is defined to provide an unequal time propagator, which can be fitted to the market data. A calibration algorithm is designed to find the empirical parameters for this model and different denoising methods are used to capture the signals concealed in the rate of return. The detailed results of this Gaussian model show that the different stocks can have strong correlation and the empirical unequal time correlator can be described by the model's propagator. This preliminary study provides a novel model for the correlator of di...

  • Providing a pedagogical introduction to the essential principles of path integrals and Hamiltonians, this book describes cutting-edge quantum mathematical techniques applicable to a vast range of fields, from quantum mechanics, solid state physics, statistical mechanics, quantum field theory, and superstring theory to financial modeling, polymers, biology, chemistry, and quantum finance. Eschewing use of the Schrodinger equation, the powerful and flexible combination of Hamiltonian operators and path integrals is used to study a range of different quantum and classical random systems, succinctly demonstrating the interplay between a system's path integral, state space, and Hamiltonian...

  • There is wide consensus that the ultimate objective of government policies is to improve the quality of people's lives. The reality, however, is that the impact of government policies tends to be measured rather in terms of GDP growth as proxy for progress. The debate about growth vs. development is not new as the distinction between these concepts was recognized since the 1970s. GDP growth has often been understood in terms of improvement in the quality of life. However, further research is indicating that inequality affects sustainable growth (Berg and Ostry 2011), which in turn reduces the ability to improve the quality of life. This is the case of many OECD nations where household...

  • The objective of the study is to examine perceived Public Account Committee's (PAC) independence from the perspective of PAC members and non-PAC members. The findings indicate that for the PAC to be independence, it should be free from any form of interference from any party when exercising and conducting its responsibilities. The PAC must be free to select any topic or issue to be examined that they think important and involves the public interest. However, being independent can also be seen as a way of gaining political mileage for PAC members and also gives advantages to the opposition members too. Overall, the independence of the PAC is still debatable judging from the decision an...

  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are one of the most successful financial innovations of the last decades. The main focus of this study is to examine the risk adjusted performance, tracking error and trading characteristics of emerging and developed markets ETF. 43 passively managed equity ETFs have been chosen to cover both markets. The results indicate that the emerging markets are less efficient in terms of index replication and possess higher tracking error compared to the developed market ETF. Conversely, emerging markets provide better risk adjusted performance. Last but not least, it is also found that assets size has positive impacts towards ETFs performance and in contrast, the e...

In addition, the performances are compared in the context of various five year economic, social and cultural development plans based on the rate of growth of capital input during the implementation of the different plans. Results indicate that fisheries, and forestry sub-sectors have undergone a declining trend in the productivity of capital input, while field cropping, horticulture, and animal husbandry sub-sectors have experienced increasing trend in the productivity of capital input during the study period.

  • ETFs have attracted many investors as one of the most innovative products of financial engineering. By virtue of the nascent nature of MyETF-DJIM Titan 25 and FBM 30ETF in Malaysia, comparative performance studies are essential during a financial crisis. MyETF is different from FBM 30ETF in terms of investment scope and Shariah governance structure. While MyETF has achieved its objective in tracking its index, FBM 30ETF has failed in this respect. Despite its higher total risk, MyETF performed better than its index. The same applies in the case of FBM 30ETF. Although MyETF has bigger net assets, economies of scale, and better diversification, the performances of the two funds are lack...

  • The study found that Islamic banking scheme (IBS) banks have recorded higher return on assets (ROA) as they are able to utilize existing overheads carried by mainstream banks. As this lowers their overhead expenses, it is found that the higher ROA ratio for IBS banks does not imply efficiency. It is also inconsistent with their relatively low asset utilization and investment margin ratios. This finding confirmed our contention that Islamic banking that thrives on interest-like products (credit finance) is less likely to outshine mainstream banks on efficiency terms. Although Islamic credit finance products may have complied with Shariah rules, their lack of ethical content is not expe...
