The Islamic financial industry is growing rapidly. There are a number of foundational elements that are still developing, with macroeconomic policy goals and instruments, and policy formulation in the public sector at the forefront.

Challenges in Economic and Financial Policy Formulation provides an introductory, yet comprehensive, treatment of macroeconomic policies and their implementation in an Islamic-designed economic system. The authors discuss the characteristics, logic, objectives, organizing principles, policies and policy instruments in an economic system structured on the foundational teachings of Islam. This exciting new volume addresses the design and implementation of policies in Muslim countries and outlines the all-important question of policy objectives designed and implemented to convert the conventional system into Islamic economic and financial systems as envisaged in the Quran.
