Islamic Perspectives on Sustainable Development
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Since interest is prohibited in Islam, this book examines the sustainability of development in a non-interest framework and how a supporting financial system can be built on alternative mechanisms. It explains how various issues in the field of sustainable development relate to Muslim countries. It highlights the fact that sustainable development is emerging as a new economic philosophy that has significant departures from the neo-classical paradigm.
