First, the audio is poorly recorded - too much room echo and hard to follow. The speakers need to be miked. More fundamentally, should LSE be lending its prestige to "Islamic finance"? This is really "Islamic finance as promoted by neo revivalist Islamists who reject modernist approaches to Koranic exegesis".

"Islamic" Finance is just rent-seeking legal arbitrage.

The intention to engage in "trade" rather than "interest" is form of self-prescribed delusion. If the extra money required eats into your budgetary constraint, you would have no choice but to settle for a cheaper home which might be less than adequate. It is a still a mechanism which would inflate asset prices gradually and render lower to middle income individuals worse off. Moreover, if the so-called "rent" you're paying isn't being recycled via the Treasury to cut taxes and spend into key social services then the lease is indistinguishable from interest. It is not calculated in the original price of the home, hence distorting the natural functions of supply and demand.

It's been done before and was quite successful.
Thank you so much for sharing. We have now a group for the promotion of this system in Madagascar. Is it possible for us to have a direct relation with your organization ?
