Islamic Finance as an Ethno-political Agenda in the 1980s

The inextricable relationship between state policies and the progressive development of Islamic finance in Malaysia has long been a subject of study. However, few studies have explored the role the pioneers of Islamic finance played.

With these findings, I contend that the symbolic role of the pioneers is substantially more significant than any economic effect they had.
