|Title:||Piety, Profit and Politics: The Contemporary Evolution of Islamic Banking in Malaysia||Authors:||JAMES I. MARTIN JR.||Keywords:||Islam, banking, Malaysia, politics, finance, business||Issue Date:||6-May-2008||Citation:||JAMES I. MARTIN JR. (2008-05-06). Piety, Profit and Politics: The Contemporary Evolution of Islamic Banking in Malaysia. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Recently, Islamic Banking has experienced exponential growth that has transformed the Malaysian finance sector. Record inflows of capital from both Muslim and non-Muslim sources alike have brought Malaysia to the forefront of Islamic financial providers. With 2004 estimates placing total Islamic assets at RM85.2 billion, or 10% of the total banking sector in Malaysia, the shape and impact of Islamic Banking and Finance will inevitably play a role in the development of the economic, political and social landscapes of the Federation. With this in mind, this thesis examines the growth of Islamic Banking in Malaysia from a religious, fiscal, and political perspective, seeking both to explain the current position of the sector in the Federation as well as its relationship with contemporary social discourse in the country.||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/13144|
