Economics and morality from an Islamic perspective
Economics is often viewed as amoral but not immoral. It is concerned with an important question: how households, businesses and countries and even the entire planet should be managed to live within their resources. Economic theory treats this as a problem of constrained maximization, which is subject to technical solutions focused on the optimal use of scarce resources.
