  • Authors: Mahmoud Al-Jarhi, Mabid Ali Mohamed (2013)

  • After a generation of non-professional writers in Islamic economics, professional economists entered the stage with an important ambition, which has been to introduce a third alternative to humanity in addition to capitalism and socialism that would answer some of the inadequacies of each. Moreover, the analysis of human (individual and collective) behavior towards scarcity under the teachings of Islam was itself worth pursuing. The intellectual effort is yet to produce significant practices of Islamic economics. The exceptions include some application of Islamic finance that raises many questions, and a few applications of zakah and awqaf. The most serious challenge of Islamic financ...

  • Authors: Iqbal, Zamir; Mirakhor, Abbas; Askari, Hossein (2010)

  • This is an extremely valuable book written by three highly qualified scholars whose credentials for writing such a book are difficult to match. The timing of the book is also perfect, having come at a time when the worst financial crisis in living memory has intensified the quest for reform of the international architecture. The proposals made by the authors should go a long way in not only reforming the system but also in accelerating the move towards financial globalization and convergence of the conventional and Islamic financial systems.

  • Authors: Sapar, Resul (2017)

  • Income inequality, or the widening income gap between the rich and the poor, is the most discussed universal and controversial issue. It is an issue of great concern as history has shown that it can create costly, bloody, social and political instability as evidenced by French and Russian Revolutions and Arab Spring events. Many causes have been cited for the widening income gap between the rich and the poor including economic development, technological change, trade openness, financial development, and changes in labor market institutions, redistributive policies and education attainment. This thesis focuses ... Available in physical copy and downloadable format (Call Number: t HC...

  • Connections between politicians and business houses are not uncommon. Literature shows that firms tends to connect with politicians/political parties to get easy access to credit, to have lax regulatory oversight, to have preferential treatment for the government contracts and for having access to insider information. On the other hand a Shari'ah compliant firm is considered to perform ethically and justly due to adherence to the rules and regulations prescribed by Shari'ah. In recent years the research on political connections of Malaysian listed firms is increased. But the comparison of politically connected listed firms and Shari'ah compliant listed firms in Malaysia is lacking. Ma...

  • This paper seeks to show empirical evidence on the relationship amongst excessive credit, real estate, inequality and current account imbalances by using the LSDVC estimator based on 10 countries with similar economic experiences between the years 2004 through 2012. The paper is motivated by the gap in the literature concerning this topic and the fact that there exists a myriad of previous works that demonstrate how the dominance of real estate, inequality and current account imbalances are natural side effects owing to economic growth in a country ...

  • Authors: Ibrahim, Mansor H.; Siong, Hook Law (2015)

  • This paper examines the roles of trade, institutional quality and their interactions in explaining carbon dioxide emissions in a panel sample of 40 Sub-Sahara African countries using the system generalised method of moments. We find that institutional reforms are unequivocally environmental improving. Meanwhile, the impacts of trade on the environment tend to depend on the institutional setting of a country. More specifically, trade openness is harmful to the environment in countries with low institutional quality and beneficial to the environment in countries with high institutional quality. This means that institutional reforms are a perquisite for the countries with low institution...

  • Authors: Cizakca, Murat (2010)

  • There are two basic approaches to Islamic economics and finance: Shari' ah compliant and Shari'ah based. The former is relatively easy and therefore dominates. It involves looking at the West for viable economic or financial institutions and instruments. After identifying these, it reverses engineering and dismantles them into their essential components. This is followed by the introduction of additional transactions, trying to make each component comply with the Shari'ah. It can then claim to have invented a new instrument that is Shari'ah compliant.
