Timur Kuran Islam and Mammon. The Economic Predicaments of Islamism

4064 руб.
The doctrine of "Islamic economics" entered debates over the social role of Islam in the mid-twentieth century. Since then it has pursued the goal of restructuring economies according to perceived Islamic teachings. Beyond its most visible practical achievement--the establishment of Islamic banks meant to avoid interest--it has promoted Islamic norms of economic behavior and founded redistribution systems modeled after early Islamic fiscal practices. In this bold and timely critique, Timur Kuran argues that the doctrine of Islamic economics is simplistic, incoherent, and largely irrelevant to present economic challenges. Observing that few Muslims take it seriously, he also finds that its practical applications have had no discernible effects on efficiency, growth, or poverty reduction. Why, then, has Islamic economics enjoyed any appeal at all? Kuran's answer is that the real purpose of Islamic economics has not been economic improvement but cultivation of a distinct Islamic identity to resist cultural globalization. The Islamic subeconomies that have sprung up across the Islamic world are commonly viewed as manifestations of Islamic economics. In reality, Kuran demonstrates, they emerged to meet the economic aspirations of socially marginalized groups. The Islamic enterprises that form these subeconomies provide advancement opportunities to the disadvantaged. By enhancing interpersonal trust, they also facilitate intragroup transactions. These findings raise the...

The pivotal objective of any financial system is to maintain a stable and efficient framework for the distribution and allocation of scarce monetary resources. This book attempts to examine the monetary stability process under the dual banking system. It selects Malaysia as a case where the government aims to run Islamic and conventional banking systems on a parallel basis. The book starts from investigating factors that have affected Islamic and conventional banks deposits held under various schemes. It then defines and develops new Islamic and conventional (M1 and M2) intermediate aggregates and compares their performances. This section also embraces the areas such as developing equations to calculate demand for money, the Central Bank of Malaysia's controllability over Islamic and conventional intermediate aggregates and lastly the effectiveness of both types of intermediate aggregates in achieving economic targets controlling inflation in short-term).

Project Report from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 3.67, , course: Chartered Islamic Finance Professional, language: English, abstract: The Islamic crowdfunding concept despite of no history as such in the past are still much demanded and appraised in the Islamic as well as conventional economies. Also, in the backdrop of a rising global Muslim population, attractiveness of the much necessitated halal products and services and increasingly conscious investors, the Islamic CF platform will serve to narrow the financing/funding gap which is currently posing a threat to striving entrepreneurships and subsequent economic growth and social benefit, especially in low-income and developing economies. Islamic value driven approach fits well within the growing fascination towards socially responsible and ethical investing. This paper has discussed the Islamic CF portals available in the Muslim world and how their mechanism is being applied. These platforms are not limited to Muslim communities rather they are general public focused and economic growth driven engines which if used with efficacy can result in astounding results.. We believe that if Islamic CF is made available to the financially inclusive economies, it will be beneficial for them for their development. Furthermore, to overcome religious and social barriers in order to vitalize economic progress resulting from innovative and creative entrepreneurship, Islamic CF platform ...

A New Paradigm: We require systems which run parallel to natural ones, not against them. For example, regional, closed-loop (No waste, cradle to cradle), self-sufficient, & decentralized systems (Horizontal vs. Hierarchical). Sustainable systems which are NOT based on constant economic growth & consumption. The organization of self-managed, egalitarian, and highly co-operative societies. This will require a shift in consciousness which recognizes our interconnectedness and interdependence on each other and nature. A shift from ego-systems to eco-systems. Politicians are merely puppets (Pawns, proxies), of private interests. The media & governments role in two words- "controlled opposition" (Corporate tools). The fundamental problem is this entire unsustainable system driven by consumption & economic growth. A fraction of the resources spent on the military industrial complex, corporate welfare, etc. would solve all the ecological, social, and economic problems we face.

Uniquely reflects an engineering view to social systems in a wide variety of contexts of application Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity brings together a wide variety of application approaches to social systems from an engineering viewpoint. The book defines a social system as any complex system formed by human beings. Focus is given to the importance of systems intervention design for specific and singular settings, the possibilities of engineering thinking and methods, the use of computational models in particular contexts, and the development of portfolios of solutions. Furthermore, this book considers both technical, human and social perspectives, which are crucial to solving complex problems. Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity provides modelling examples to explore the design aspect of social systems. Various applications are explored in a variety of areas, such as urban systems, health care systems, socio-economic systems, and environmental systems. It covers important topics such as organizational design, modelling and intervention in socio-economic systems, participatory and/or community-based modelling, application of systems engineering tools to social problems, applications of computational behavioral modeling, computational modelling and management of complexity, and more. Highlights an engineering view to social systems (as opposed to a “scientific” view) that stresses the importance of systems intervention design for specific and singular settings Divulges works where the design, re-design, and transformation of social systems constitute the main aim, and where joint considerations of both technical and social perspectives are deemed important in solving social problems Features an array of applied cases that illustrate the application of social systems engineering in different domains Social Systems Engineering: The Design of Complexity is an excellent text for academics and graduate students in engineering and social science—specifically, economists, political scientists, anthropologists, and management scientists with an interest in finding systematic ways to intervene and improve social systems.

From humans to hermit crabs to deep water plankton, all living things compete for locally limiting resources. This universal truth unites three bodies of thought--economics, evolution, and history--that have developed largely in mutual isolation. Here, Geerat Vermeij undertakes a groundbreaking and provocative exploration of the facts and theories of biology, economics, and geology to show how processes common to all economic systems--competition, cooperation, adaptation, and feedback--govern evolution as surely as they do the human economy, and how historical patterns in both human and nonhuman evolution follow from this principle. Using a wealth of examples of evolutionary innovations, Vermeij argues that evolution and economics are one. Powerful consumers and producers exercise disproportionate controls on the characteristics, activities, and distribution of all life forms. Competition-driven demand by consumers, when coupled with supply-side conditions permitting economic growth, leads to adaptation and escalation among organisms. Although disruptions in production halt or reverse these processes temporarily, they amplify escalation in the long run to produce trends in all economic systems toward greater power, higher production rates, and a wider reach for economic systems and their strongest members. Despite our unprecedented power to shape our surroundings, we humans are subject to all the economic principles and historical trends that emerged at life's origin more...

Development of emerging countries is often enabled through non-conventional finance. Indeed, the prohibition of interest and some other impediments require understanding conventional finance and Islamic finance, which both seek to be ethical and socially responsible. Thus, comparing and understanding the features of Islamic banking and conventional banking, in a globalized economy, is fundamental. This book explains the features of both conventional and Islamic banking within the current international context. It also provides a comparative view of banking governance, performance and risk-taking of both finance systems. It will be of particular use to practitioners and researchers, as well as to organizations and companies who are interested in conventional and Islamic banking.

The long history of economic and financial crises shows that pro-cyclicality is an inherent feature of the real and financial sectors of an economy. The main feature of pro-cyclicality is an underestimation or overestimation of the risks to which the banking sector is exposed. The Islamic financial system, is also impacted by procyclicality feature. I chose the title; what we know about the Islamic financial system procyclicality; in order to awaken the academics and the researchers to not only focus on the green side of Islamic finance. We have to check theoretically and empirically the weaknesses and the pain of the Islamic financial system in order to complete the Islamic finance theory. This book suggests three Islamic versions of financial accelerator effect in three different markets, Partnership contract market, Sukuk Market and Organized Tawarruq market. The main pains are the forces that push the Islamic Financial System to be a shock amplifier rather than absorber.

It is clear that our present economic system is unsustainable. Never-ending exponential industrial growth on a finite planet is a logical absurdity. We are already using resources at a rate which it would take 1.6 planet earths to replace. We are already undermining the ecological systems which support all of life. Our present economic system has led to an unbelievable degree of economic inequality. To maintain this inequality, both between nations and within nations, military force is used, and democracy is replaced by oligarchy. The future of human civilization is endangered both by the threat of thermonuclear war and by the threat of catastrophic climate change; and both of the twin threats are results of our present economic system. This book documents in detail the serious economic problems of today's world, and it also proposes sustainable solutions.

Heating systems are the largest factor in determining the environmental as well as economic impact of running a winter greenhouse. As heating winter greenhouses proves very costly, environmental sustainability is often marginalized in the pursuit of minimizing heating system expenditures. This paper examines a range of heating systems (natural gas, propane, waste-heat water, biodigester, biomasss, geothermal, and solar power) to determine which is the most economical and environmentally responsible. A literature review was conducted examining the proposed heating systems, comparing the average Btu consumption values both for large and small greenhouses maintained at 50°F, during a typical winter season from October to March. The results of this review indicate that ground source heat pumps provide the most effective solution to heating a winter greenhouse in Minnesota, taking into account both the environmental and economic costs.

The structural coupling between the economic-, social- and ecological system, however, is not strong enough, because it seems that the overall system of "life on planet Earth" is not sustainable in the long-term. To strengthen the structural coupling between the economic-, social- and ecological systems a man-made structural learning coupling could be implemented. This additonal structural coupling could be enabled by the new information and communication technology. The Internet could deliver a world-wide structural learning coupling by the use of self-organizing virtual enterprises.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: 17 von 20, Vrije University Brussel, 38 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Islamic movements have become a crucial political issue in Uzbekistan. Despite having taken some transitional democratic measures (opposition parties were granted legal status, an ombudsman was appointed, etc.), and even though President Karimov had shown an early interest in Western (and in particular European) institutional systems, it seems that over the past five years the democratic process in Uzbekistan has taken a step back to practices inherited from Soviet times. Much of the state's repressive apparatus and many of the its negative economic policies have been attributed to the need to fight against Islamic extremist. The most prominent Islamic groups in Uzbekistan are the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) and Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT). After the IMU infrastructure and capacity was destroyed during the U.S.- led military campaign in Afghanistan in 2001 its role in challenging the regime of President Karimov´s regime states has been taken over by the non-violent radical group Hizb ut-Tahrir. Unlike the IMU, the HuT is a true transnational organization that consists of semiindependent branches, only some of which are in Central Asia. In Central Asia, it has been most active in Uzbekistan. The purpose and the limit of this paper is to give an overview of the historical backgrou...

Fundamental Economic Principles, Methods, and Tools for Addressing Human Systems Integration Issues and Tradeoffs Human Systems Integration (HSI) is a new and fundamental integrating discipline designed to help move business and engineering cultures toward more human-centered systems. Integrating consideration of human abilities, limitations, and preferences into engineering systems yields important cost and performance benefits that otherwise would not have been accomplished. In order for this new discipline to be effective, however, a cultural change—starting with organizational leadership—is often necessary. The Economics of Human Systems Integration explains the difficulties underlying valuation of investments in people's training and education, safety and health, and work productivity. It provides an overview of how the field of economics addresses these difficulties, focusing on human issues associated with design, development, production, operations, maintenance, and sustainment of complex systems. The set of thought leaders recruited as contributors to this volume collectively provides a compelling set of data and principles for assessing the economic value of investing in people, not just in general but in specific investment situations. The early chapters provide the contexts for HSI and investment analysis, illustrating the enormous difference context makes in how issues are best framed and analyzed. A host of practical methods and tools for investment valuation are then presented. Provided are: A variety of real-world applications of economic analysis ranging from military acquisition and automotive investment to healthcare and high-tech investments in general, in both the U.S. and abroad A range of economics-based methods and tools for cost analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and investment analysis, as well as sources of data for performing such analyses Differing perspectives on economic decision-making, including a range of private sector points of view, as well as government and regulatory perspectives In addition, five real-world case studies illustrate how such valuations have been done and their major impacts on investment decisions. HSI professionals, systems engineers, and finance professionals who address investment analysis will appreciate the wide range of methods and real-life applications; senior undergraduates and masters-level graduate students will find this to be an excellent textbook that provides theory and supports practice.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, , language: English, abstract: The current rapid growth rate of Islamic banking in the world market has made the banking approach a significant contributor to economic growth. However, few studies have been done to determine the extent to which conventional banks can survive in an Islamic banking environment. The purpose of this study was to assess the financial performance of financial institutions and relate it to their involvement in Islamic banking. The study took an explorative and a quantitative approach, whereby literature was acquired from online sources for use in assessing the current state of knowledge, and financial performance data for Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs were acquired from Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The literature was reviewed in the literature review section while financial performance records were assessed using Microsoft Excel 2011 software package. The study findings determined that conventional banks have varying degrees of success in their Islamic banking ventures, whereby high levels of fluctuations characterize the institutions' financial records. According to the exponential growth of Goldman Sachs in 2012 upon the issuance of sukuks, it is relatively easy for conventional banks to achieve growth through offering of Islamic banking products. However, according to the study fin...

Roxanne L. Euben Enemy in the Mirror. Islamic Fundamentalism and the Limits of Modern Rationalism: A Work of Comparative Political Theory

4852 руб.
A firm grasp of Islamic fundamentalism has often eluded Western political observers, many of whom view it in relation to social and economic upheaval or explain it away as an irrational reaction to modernity. Here Roxanne Euben makes new sense of this belief system by revealing it as a critique of and rebuttal to rationalist discourse and post-Enlightenment political theories. Euben draws on political, postmodernist, and critical theory, as well as Middle Eastern studies, Islamic thought, comparative politics, and anthropology, to situate Islamic fundamentalist thought within a transcultural theoretical context. In so doing, she illuminates an unexplored dimension of the Islamist movement and holds a mirror up to anxieties within contemporary Western political thought about the nature and limits of modern rationalism--anxieties common to Christian fundamentalists, postmodernists, conservatives, and communitarians. A comparison between Islamic fundamentalism and various Western critiques of rationalism yields formerly uncharted connections between Western and Islamic political thought, allowing the author to reclaim an understanding of political theory as inherently comparative. Her arguments bear on broad questions about the methods Westerners employ to understand movements and ideas that presuppose nonrational, transcendent truths. Euben finds that first, political theory can play a crucial role in understanding concrete political phenomena often considered beyond its jurisd...

Dieses Buch stellt das Islamic Banking als eine Alternative zum konventionellen bzw. westlichen Finanzsystem vor und untersucht ein eventuelles Potenzial für Islamic Banking in Deutschland. Das islamkonforme Finanzwesen untergliedert sich in die Bereiche "Islamic Insurance", "Islamic Capital Markets" und "Islamic Banking". Die Begriffe Islamic Banking und Islamic Finance werden in der Presse und Literatur oft gleichbedeutend verwendet. Jedoch beschreibt Islamic Finance die Gesamtheit aller Elemente, welche sich im islamkonformen Finanzwesen mit Finanzen beschäftigen. Unter Islamic Banking werden hingegen islamkonforme Bankgeschäfte zusammengefasst. Im ersten Teil des Buches wird ein kurzer Abriss der historischen Entwicklung des Islam vermittelt und dessen Rechtsquellen erläutert. Darauf aufbauend werden die historische Entwicklung islamkonform arbeitender Banken und Prinzipien, nach denen sie arbeiten, sowie die daraus resultierenden Vertragskonstruktionen dargestellt. Um dem Leser einen Einblick in die Praxis des Islamic Banking zu geben, werden in einem eigenen Kapitel reale Beispiele für islamkonforme Bank- und Finanzprodukte erklärt. Bezüglich des Potenzials für Islamic Banking in Deutschland wird zunächst die mögliche Kundengruppe, die in Deutschland lebenden Muslime, nach verschiedenen Faktoren, wie zum Beispiel Religiosität und Einkommen, untersucht. Anschließend erfolgt die Darstellung der Meinungen von Finanzinstituten zum Potenzial von Islam...

Muhammad Saleem Islamic Banking - A .300 Billion Deception

827 руб.
Книга "Islamic Banking - A $300 Billion Deception".Islamic banks currently control about $300 billion in assets. This book assesses the underlying rationale of Islamic banking, that the Quran prohibits all forms of interest. The author maintains that, first, a correct interpretation of the Quran, keeping in mind the context, would indicate that what the Quran prohibits is usury -exorbitant interest. Second, Islamic banks do not practice what they preach; they all charge interest, but disguised in Islamic garb. Thus they engage in deceptive and dishonest banking practices.The author also offers some policy recommendations, including the need for Ijtihad, Enlightenment, and critical thinking. Islamic banks, if they wish to practice genuine and authentic Islamic banking, should become more like venture capital firms.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: 1,3, Ben Gurion University (Middle East Institute), course: Middle East Economics, 81 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Islamic banking system is a relatively young institution that gains influence not only in the Islamic world but also in non-Muslim countries with big Muslim communities. The first Islamic bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, was erected in 1975; today about 265 Islamic finance institutions operate in more than 70 countries, and their assets have increased more than 40-fold since 1982 to exceed $230 billion. More and more western banks erect Islamic branches; the first was Citibank in 1996. This paper discusses the influence of an Islamic banking system on the start-up of young, innovative businesses. A negative influence would hinder these businesses to develop - if not counterbalanced by other measures like state involvement. In non-Muslim countries it would constrain religious Muslims from participating in the contemporary economical changes, determined by an opening-up of markets and privatization, which requires the start-up of new businesses.The Islamic banking system operates according to Islamic law; hence several Islamic restrictions, the most important is the prohibition of riba (=interest), limit its freedom to develop suitable financing instruments for the support of young, innovative businesses.These restrictions enlarge the risk of t...

Can Islamic finance save the global system? Islamic Finance and the New Financial System describes how the adoption of Islamic finance principles in future regulatory decisions could help prevent future shocks in the global financial system. Using illustrations and examples to highlight key points in recent history, this book discusses the causes of financial crises, why they are becoming more frequent and increasingly severe, and how the new financial system will incorporate elements of Islamic finance – whether deliberately or not. With an introspective look at the system and an examination of the misconceptions and deficiencies in theory vs. practice, readers will learn why Islamic finance has not been as influential as it should be on the larger global system. Solutions to these crises are thoroughly detailed, and the author puts forth a compelling argument about what can be expected in the future. Despite international intervention and global policy changes, the financial system remains in a fragile state. There is an argument to be made about integrating Islamic finance into the new system to facilitate stronger resilience, and this book explains the nuts and bolts of the idea while providing the reader with a general understanding of Islamic finance. Understand the key principles of Islamic finance Examine the history of the current financial system Discover how Islamic finance can help build a new debt-free economy Learn how Islamic finance theory doesn't always dictate practice Although Islamic finance is a growing market, it is still a foreign concept to many. Those within the Islamic finance circles wonder why the system has yet to gain broader appeal despite its ability to create a strong and well-balanced economy. Islamic Finance and the New Financial System provides clever analysis and historical background to put the issues into perspective.

Fundamental Economic Principles, Methods, and Tools for Addressing Human Systems Integration Issues and Tradeoffs Human Systems Integration (HSI) is a new and fundamental integrating discipline designed to help move business and engineering cultures toward more human-centered systems. Integrating consideration of human abilities, limitations, and preferences into engineering systems yields important cost and performance benefits that otherwise would not have been accomplished. In order for this new discipline to be effective, however, a cultural change—starting with organizational leadership—is often necessary. The Economics of Human Systems Integration explains the difficulties underlying valuation of investments in people's training and education, safety and health, and work productivity. It provides an overview of how the field of economics addresses these difficulties, focusing on human issues associated with design, development, production, operations, maintenance, and sustainment of complex systems. The set of thought leaders recruited as contributors to this volume collectively provides a compelling set of data and principles for assessing the economic value of investing in people, not just in general but in specific investment situations. The early chapters provide the contexts for HSI and investment analysis, illustrating the enormous difference context makes in how issues are best framed and analyzed. A host of practical methods and tools for investment valuation are then presented. Provided are: A variety of real-world applications of economic analysis ranging from military acquisition and automotive investment to healthcare and high-tech investments in general, in both the U.S. and abroad A range of economics-based methods and tools for cost analysis, cost-benefit analysis, and investment analysis, as well as sources of data for performing such analyses Differing perspectives on economic decision-making, including a range of private sector points of view, as well as government and regulatory perspectives In addition, five real-world case studies illustrate how such valuations have been done and their major impacts on investment decisions. HSI professionals, systems engineers, and finance professionals who address investment analysis will appreciate the wide range of methods and real-life applications; senior undergraduates and masters-level graduate students will find this to be an excellent textbook that provides theory and supports practice.
