  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Sharia Finance Class at MIT

Posted by rightwinger on December 11, 2008

Sharia finance class being taught at MIT.  This is just the beginning of Islam taking over this great nation.  Americans need to wake up before its too late!

“Sharia Finance In The Classroom” — a course announcement from the MIT Sloan School of Management, posted by Pamela at Atlas Shrugs:

Title Spec Sem in Mgmt: Practice of Finance: Islamic Finance Islamic financial institutions have in recent years experienced spectacular growth (+25% in 2006, +37% in 2007). Islamic financial assets now exceed 1 trillion dollars and what was once a small niche has gone mainstream. Indeed, most major Western financial institutions are involved in one way or another in Islamic finance. The first part of the course introduces the basic principles underlying the industry (the prohibitions of riba, gharar, etc.) and discusses its recent evolution. The second part focuses on the main Islamic products: murabaha, mudaraba, musharaka, ijara, sukuk, takaful, etc. and explains how Islamic deals are structured. The third part discusses the challenges – competitive, regulatory, political, religious, etc. – faced by Islamic institutions and considers the impact of the current financial meltdown on their future evolution.
