Causes and Remedies of the Recent Financial Crisis From an Islamic Perspective
As the leading authority on modern Islamic finance in the world today, no one was better qualified to speak for Islam at the annual World Economic Forum following the global financial crisis in 2010. In his address, Mufti Taqi Usmani pointed out that the so-called crisis only came about when it knocked at the doors of the wealthy.
Otherwise, as Mufti Usmani astutely points out, the true crisis is ongoing and unless fundamental changes are made to the worlds economic system, that crisis will continue. In the pages of this slim volume, the reader will find a concise study of the fundamental flaws in the global economic system, and the eternal principles articulated by the Shariah of Islam that point to a solution.
