The authors of this timely book investigate various forms and measures of corruption, examine whether corruption is more acute in Persian Gulf countries than elsewhere, and illustrate the unique forms it takes in oil- and natural gas-rich economies.

While corruption is globally pervasive and adversely affects the interests of citizens worldwide, it has perhaps received the most notoriety in developing countries that have an abundance of mineral deposits.

The stability of Islamic finance creating a resilient financial environment for a secure future by Abbas Mirakhor( )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Stability of Islamic Finance main focus is on the question of the sources of financial instability which seems inherent in the conventional system. As a core component of this focus, the book will consider episodes of turbulence and instability in a historical context recalling the occurrence of such events from mid-19th century to the present. It will present various theoretical explanations along with solutions and alternative financial systems that avoid instability provided by various scholars dating back to mid-19th century to present. The book then will present and discuss the architecture of an Islamic financial system and show that at its core, this system shares many characteristics of an stable financial system proposed by Western scholars throughout history to avoid the inherent instability of the present dominant system. Particular emphasis will be placed on the present financial crisis and its causes as well the financial crisis of the 1997 in Southeast Asia, Russia, and Latin America relating these episodes to the fundamental features of the dominant system. The debt crisis of the low income countries will also be part of this discussion. It will then argue that these crises could be mitigated under an Islamic system or any other system with similar architecture

Islam and the path to human and economic development by Abbas Mirakhor( Book )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is a cognitive deficit between the holistic vision for human and societal development in Islam and the results achieved by Muslim societies. The authors begin by looking at the Western concept of development, which in recent years has recognized the wider dimensions of human development and the role of institutions. Thus Western thinking has moved toward the Islamic vision and path of development, emphasizing human solidarity, belonging, wellbeing, sharing, concern for others, basic human entitlements, and modest living. The authors illuminate the Quranic vision and the experience of the society organized by the Prophet, which together represent the Islamic paradigm

Conflicts in the Persian Gulf : origins and evolution by Hossein Askari( Book )
12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Analyzing the origins of conflicts and wars in the Persian Gulf, this study assesses the conflicts' shared trajectories and fallouts. Although the origins of conflicts are varied (sectarian, religious, ethnic, and tribal, over territory and over resources), as conflicts evolve, the quest for "revenge" and the desire to settle old scores is only one, apparent fuel, which belies a more essential one. The evolution of most conflicts can, over time, be traced to a single source--the struggle for power and control over resources. Hossein Askari argues that reconciliation will require the simultaneous adoption of foundational political, social, and economic reforms by the countries in the region, as well as the cooperation of the global powers, especially the United States, to end support of dictators and reduce the human costs of aggression. The creation of a just society with freedom and equal opportunities for all is a necessary precondition if peace and prosperity are to flourish"--
New issues in Islamic finance and economics : progress and challenges by Hossein Askari( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The authors argue that the future success of Islamic finance will depend on a number of developments, including: economic and financial reform in Islamic countries, institutional reform and liberalization (leading to the development of transparent and efficient institutions), governance and regulatory oversight of Islamic financial institutions and products (affecting the reputation of Islamic institutions and products), research into the development of Shari'ah-compatible financial products, the pace of economic growth in Islamic countries (determining the demand for Shari'ah-compatible financial products), and on the direction and further developments in financial globalization."--Jacket
Collaborative colonialism : the political economy of oil in the Persian Gulf by Hossein Askari( )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the discovery of oil, the countries of the Persian Gulf have been caught in a vicious circle. With increasing oil revenues, rulers have made self-enrichment their motivation while foreign powers have exploited the region and provided support for oppressive regimes. Early exploitation of the region's oil was colonial in practice; today, oppressive rulers and foreigners work hand-in-hand to the detriment of the citizenry. Rulers have no incentives to foster good institutions, especially the rule of law, as independent and efficient institutions would undermine their control over oil revenues.<p ><br/>This book takes a chronological look at the impact of oil in the region and examines how vast oil revenues have encouraged oppressive governance and corrupted development policies, impeding human, political, and economic progress. Hossein Askari argues that there is an urgent need for visionary political and economic reform in order to prevent a regional catastrophe. Rulers must start by publicly acknowledging that oil belongs to the people of all generations and that it must be managed accordingly - efficiently, equitably, and transparently (site de l'éditeur)
