Conversation with Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance

Here is the recording of an interview, really more like a conversation, that I had with Yusuf Jha, who is a Sharia Controller at an Islamic Bank, for the Ethica Institute of Islamic Finance. I am excited at what might be the start of a linkage with a movement that bears many principles in common with Sacred Economics. It is well known that Islam, like many other religions, forbids usury, but on a deeper level it also articulates many principles of the gift that Sacred Economics seeks to embody in the money system. I especially enjoyed this conversation because Yusuf has an extraordinarily clear understanding and awareness of the deep issues of usury, growth, and scarcity. Our conversation was far-ranging. Enjoy!
