  • A_comparison_of_transactions_in_conventional_and_Islamic_economies_Mabid.pdf.jpg
  • Academic Proceeding


  • Mahmoud Al-Jarhi, Mabid Ali Mohamed (2000)

  • This paper compares the transactions costs in two economies, one conventional, the other Islamic. The conventional economy is characterized by borrowing to finance some current purchases, while the Islamic economy disallows interest-based lending and operates on the basis of universal banking that mixes commerce and commercial and investment banking. To finance current purchases, it provides customers with credit purchase agreements, which entail that the bank buy the commodities and assets from suppliers and resell them on credit to customers satisfying conditions of creditworthiness similar to those that conventional banks require for borrowers. The paper uses simple calculations to...

  • Islam has provided a blueprint of how a society is to be organized, and how the affairs of its members are to be conducted in accordance with its prescriptions. The system itself has not been applied in its entirety, with the exception of a brief period at the inception of Islam. Only in recent decades have Muslims become interested in society-wide implementation of Islamic teachings, with all this implies for development.

  • Theoretically, a monetary policy intervention of a central bank in form of exchange rate devaluation will make exports of such a country cheaper with a resultant increased competitiveness. However, should developing country such as Nigeria that is mostly import-dependent adopt the same approach? Will a greater focus on the structural and developmental changes be a better option? In a long-run, what is the lead-lag relationship between exchange rate and the Balance of Payment (BOP)? These are issues this project paper sets out to empirically investigate through a multivariate vector error correction framework ... Kindly email to kmc@inceif.org to access the item.

  • The objective of these institutions is to achieve social justice. Important among their functions is reduction in uncertainty for members of society in order to allow them to overcome the obstacles to decision making caused by paucity of information. Rules specify what kind of conduct is most appropriate to achieving just results when individuals face alternative choices and must take action. They impose restrictions on what society's members can do without upsetting the social order on whose existence all members count in deciding on their own actions and forming their expectations of others' responses and actions.

  • The tragic events in our post 9/11 world disguise the fact that Islam and the West have actually been in a symbiotic relationship over the very long period. Cross-cultural institutional borrowing has constituted a major component of this symbiosis. I intend to focus in this paper on the way these civilizations borrowed important economic institutions from each other. The paper will start with a brief theoretical model explaining the process of cross-cultural institutional borrowing. This will then be followed by an account of the economic institutions actually borrowed.

  • Journal Article


  • Habibullah, Muzafar Shah; Mohd Tahir, Hirnissa; Abdul Hamid, Baharom (2013)

  • This paper investigates the long run Granger causality between defense spending and economic growth for 20 selected Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) by employing the Error-Correction Model (ECM) framework using annual data for the period 1960 to 2005. defense spending (milex) is measured using the ratio of defense spending to gross domestic product (GDP); while economic growth (rgdpc) is proxy by the real GDP per capita. The results of our study indicated that one way long run Granger causality was found running from economic growth to defense spending for Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Togo and Turkey. On the other hand, one way long run Granger causalit...

  • The statistics shows that of the richest top 20 countries in 2003, 19 were capitalist democracies. This article, thus, attempts to assess the potential association between economic development/ capitalism and democracy. In arguing for a positive nexus between the two, it also aims to locate the historical roots of this relationship. In doing so, the paper argues that Western capitalism historically evolved from market economy and capitalism developed under Islamic civilizations, which preceded the modern nature of Western capitalism by at least six hundreds years. It also argues that fundamental principles of modern democracy can be traced back to political structure of the initial Is...
