ductory book for academics and finance professionals wishing to gain a better understanding of Islamic moral constraints on economic transactions and how most current Islamic banking transactions are structured.

Unlike other books on the subject, The Islamic Moral Economy places a special emphasis on the ubiquity of financial interest and illogical increase in both current Islamic banking and finance as well as conventional economics.
