Description from the publisher:
Economics and Ethics: An Islamic Synthesis represents a creative and balanced blend of the Islamic and modern scholarship and convincingly demonstrates that the economic behavior in Islam is derived from the ethical norms. The uniqueness of Professor Naqvi’s contribution lies in developing a systematic analytical framework, adopting an axiological approach, stating with ethical philosophy via mathematical logic to Islamic economics. He transforms the rich galaxy of the ethico-economic teachings of Islam into a condensed set of axioms which may enable the professional economists to deduce policy-relevant conclusions. What is an important contribution to the development of Islamic economics is certain to arouse a lively interest and debate in academic circles, if not full agreement.
