Book Review

Economics and Economic Policy Islamic Perspective


This book is written as a textbook and takes a comprehensive approach to Islamic Economics, comparing conventional economic policies to Islamic economic policies and suggesting new theories and policies based on Islamic perspectives. The purpose of this paper is to assess a few chapters from this book, notably four chapters, on public finance that were written by two authors. The book does not adequately address critical themes, especially fiscal and public debt policies,
despite the authors’ sound methodology. Overall, even though the book discusses many significant themes, there may be more of these things covered.
