Finance, Trade, and Islamic Regulations in Asia [electronic resource]

Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
The Koran strictly forbids charging, earning, or incurring interest-a tenet that has kept the Islamic world from fully participating in global financial systems. But, thanks to a range of innovations, the ban is now seen as a building block in many of Asia's emerging economies. Visiting bustling commerce centers in Malaysia and Bangladesh, this program reports on the growing significance of Sharia-compliant trade and finance regulations. The discussion includes not only banking and investment but also the implications of halal food production and distribution. Experts include Musa Hitam, chairman of the World Islamic Economic Forum Foundation; Agil Natt, CEO of the International Center for Education in Islamic Finance; Andrew Palmer, finance editor of The Economist; and many others.
