  • PhD


  • 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.

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.

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Saba, Irum; Abdul Kareem, Mohamed Ariff; Mohd Rasid, Mohamed Eskandar Shah (2016)

  • 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...

  • institutional_quality_CO2_emission_trade_relationship_sub_saharan_africa_mansor_siong.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • 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...

  • Chapter in Book


  • 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.

  • Authors: Mirakhor, Abbas; Hamid, Idris Samawi (2009)

  • This book is to provide an introduction to Islam's conception of development and to locate it within the general topography of the spectrum of dominant ideas in their historical perspective. The book attempts to present this topography in the first three chapters throgh a brief review of major conceptions of development within the context of "twists and turns" of their historical evolution. The last three chapters present a rudimentary sketch of the contours of Islam's conception of development. Islam is a rules-based system, therefore, its conception of how humans and their collectivities can achieve material and non-material progress is also grounded on scaffolding of rule-complianc...
