利用伊斯兰金融实现可持续发展

华盛顿——1/3的全球极端贫困者在伊斯兰合作组织(OIC)成员国生活。这57个国家中的21个有不到一半的人口能够享受恰当的卫生条件。出生在这些国家的婴儿有4%均在5岁前死亡。

简言之,尽管潜力很大,不少伊斯兰合作组织国家实现广泛发展的道路却异常艰辛。其中某些国家面临着臭名昭著的“资源诅咒”;而另一些国家则需要由领导不力和机构运转不畅来承担责任。受困于冲突和自然灾害的1.25亿人中有绝大部分(约71%)生活在伊斯兰合作组织国家更加大了发展的难度。局势动荡令国家财政预算承受着巨大的压力。

但这些国家并非无计可施。尤其是某些伊斯兰合作组织国家金融体系所积累的资本可以在实现发展目标过程中发挥重要作用——尤其是如果我们能将伊斯兰金融的作用发挥到极致。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.
