  • The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in their Recommendation on Principles and Good Practices for Financial Education, argues that, in the contemporary world, financial literacy is related with standard of living and that, in the deficiency of financial knowledge, individuals and households are more exposed to indebtedness and bankruptcy (OECD, 2005). The World Savings Bank Institute (WSBI) in support for children's financial education stated that, "not only to support their habit building, but also because children are key actors of change for their families" (2009). Despite of its importance, financial literacy still remains poorly explained and imperfe...

  • Malaysia's overarching economic objective is to achieve developed country status by the year 2020. On the back of sluggish global economic condition and tight fiscal space, the economy will need to grow by a stable and rapid rate over the next few years. Currently, macroeconomic policies in Malaysia follow the conventional model based on the risk-transfer paradigm. Over the next decade, the potential for risk sharing as an alternative to risk transfer is expected to grow rapidly. As pointed out by a number of scholars and researchers, economies can be made more resilient to shocks by adopting financing methods that limit risk transfer (interest rate based debt contracts) and allow gre...

  • Authors: Hasan, Zubair (2011)

  • Shelter is one of the basic needs for human beings. Its availability for the people is an Islamic imperative. In view of the appalling living conditions of a substantial proportion of the population in most countries around the world, especially Muslim, Islamic banks have entered the field with various schemes for home financing. In this infant industry, this effort is understandably guided by the profit motive, but a social dimension has to surface in the course of time. Unfortunately, the models banks currently use for home financing remain under the juridical gaze, more so as the practice is not always found to be transparent. This paper looks at Islamic home financing models in a ...

  • Authors: Mat Sari, Norhanim (2017)

  • Since the 2007/2008 financial crisis, research has revealed that all financial crises, such as banking or exchange rate crisis, have been, in essence, debt crises (see for example Reinhart & Rogoff, 2009, 2011). Further, econometric investigations have demonstrated that the chain of causation starts from fractional reserve-based credit expansion to debt increase to leverage expansion leading to crisis (see for example Turner, Haldane, Woolley, & et al., 2010). Moreover, post-crisis diagnostics have led to conclusion that conventional monetary policy has been unable to induce growth resumption ...

  • Monetary policy is an important available tool for governments to pursuit macroeconomic objectives. However, the recent financial crisis has revealed the weaknesses of the conventional monetary policy framework. Monetary policy has been found to be a prominent cause of financial instability. Inability of expansionary monetary policy to induce new lending in many economies is considered as evidence of the impairment of conventional monetary policy transmission mechanism. Additionally, the post-crisis diagnostics have revealed that monetary policy failed to address asset market imbalances. A large number of these studies have focused on the reforms of the conventional system. Some...

  • There are numbers of things one should consider to better understand project financing from an Islamic perspective. Most are interested in examining the nature and structure of Islamic instruments used to mobilise the capital needed by a project company. Structuring an Islamic bond (sukuk) is becoming more challenging among investment bankers. Most popular are the Al-bai bithaman ajil bonds (BAIDS) and murabaha notes issuance facility (MuNif)
