I agree it is genuinely dangerous even if vacuous

Reader comment on item: Islamic Economics: What Does It Mean?

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Sep 26, 2007 at 14:01

There is no separate Islamic economics, it is simply semantic workarounds to comply with the Koran (i.e. no "interest" per se, just "prices" change if paid later)

However, it is genuinely dangerous because it removes the barriers to modern economic tools and techniques posed by "sharia compliance" to the oil-rich demons of Saudi et al.
