Economic Thought in Islam
In the last few decades, a lot of interest has been generated in the study of economic thought in Islam. In spite of several works published on the subject, not much has been written on the economic ideas of Ali (600-661CE), who was one of the most prominent caliphs (deputies) of the Prophet of Islam. Not much is known on the economic, political, and administrative policies Ali pursed and the moral values he upheld even in the most trying circumstances. This book is a study of the economic ideas of Ali, making it clear that he was a distinct precursor to several economic values which continue to dominate, even today, the mainstream economic thinking worldwide. Ali excelled, in both letter and spirit, to find solutions whenever a new economic problem confronted him. The justifications he offered were amazingly incredible and never considered before, and his ideas may be rightly termed as Alinomics.
