Does anyone else know the reason why none of the muslim countries do not have a strong economy ? Most of them rich but they dont manage this richness why ? Who establish the first economy? Why cannot we have an open and strong economy ?
 
We should discuss these topics first before why USA invade Iraq because we lose and are lost in economical issues for last century? If Palestean or any other muslim country who suffers would have the same economy with Israel, Would they suffer so much ?
 
We should be councious I think, brothers and sisters...

walaikum assallam

I would say Malaysia is the exception!

They observed the humiliation of their British colonial masters by another colonial power the Japanese during WWII. They had an awakening to learn the requirement  of  being a  free nation united in faith and discipline with an independent thinking national leadership who were not going to act as brown sahibs! They learned the rules of value added industry requiring high levels of technical education and rule of law!

Most of them rich but they dont manage this richness why ?
You must be thinking the oil producing countries! It is called easy come easy go!

Their richness is almost like the Nawabs and Maharajas in colonial India.

The Jewish operators under the guise of American diplomatic cover roam at will in the holy land!

Take the case of Pakistan a so called Islamic nation the day it was declared   the American base started it’s establishment in the north west.  Right now the country’s main politicos are on American payroll or they are stealing from that country and stashing in the US! The people are totally helpless!

Who establish the first economy?

According to Quran if I say it was Prophet Yusuf I won't be too far off think!

Then  Adam Smith is generally after his Wealth of Nation initiated modern economics!


Why cannot we have an open and strong economy ?

The most Muslim populated countries have been former colonies and consequently have the bad habits of people in bondage, lack of faith, discipline and integrity. In there is constant altercation about interest but the people and politician have no  qualms about loan defaults by intent  and not even pay the principal.

 The term economics comes from the Greek for oikos (house) and nomos (custom or law), hence "rules of the house(hold)."


. The places are in dire need of house cleaning before one can have the real functioning economy or rather any thing worthwhile!

I think with AKP rule Turkey's economy  is doing pretty good!.

 

We should discuss these topics first before why USA invade Iraq because we lose and are lost in economical issues for last century? If Palestean or any other muslim country who suffers would have the same economy with Israel, Would they suffer so much ?

 You need to rephrase the last para about Iraq/Us/Israel/ Palestine etc- it is not clear!

For Deep Blue,
 
Because, the Islamic countries have embraced 'Capitalistic' economy after about 400 years of western countries, whom you are comparing.
 
If you are comparing with the ex socialist countries, they are ahead of most of them.

Really, I went to Malaysia... I saw a part of it thats why i am not sure but I dont think that there is a strong economy in Malaysia if you mean trade yes trade can make a country rich but cannot make a real economy... in order to have a strong economy you should produce you should have factories in each sector... who produce will have a word in word politics...

Yes it is true You are right!

Really, I did not know that. Now I learned thank you ! What kind of economy did Yusuf implement ?  

Then  Adam Smith is generally after his Wealth of Nation initiated modern economics!

I know Adam Smith but who first practice it as a country as a nation ?
 

Why cannot we have an open and strong economy ?

The most Muslim populated countries have been former colonies and consequently have the bad habits of people in bondage, lack of faith, discipline and integrity. In there is constant altercation about interest but the people and politician have no  qualms about loan defaults by intent  and not even pay the principal.

Turkey has never been a colony but still It has problems with its economy... I think it is related with politics

No I dont think so... Can you tell me one thing that They have done for Turkish Economy so far despite of that great power they took! It is related with mentality.   

We should discuss these topics first before why USA invade Iraq because we lose and are lost in economical issues for last century? If Palestean or any other muslim country who suffers would have the same economy with Israel, Would they suffer so much ?

Ok. I meant who has a strong economy who produces has a word in world politics and who does not have economy unfortunately does not have a word too in world politics and suffer!

I dont think so, most of the muslim countries like Asian countries are socialist. They could not establish a Capitalistic economy...

Your view is too simplistic, you mean anyone not socialist is capitalist economy. ME hosts the largest number of Muslim countries and they definitely didn't have a truely capilalistic economy. Almost like the Socialists, their investments were also mostly in the hand of the state. what do you think they were doing that the socialists were not doing, except the religious factor?
 
You cant take the example of Mal & Indo and call that all Islamic countries. I think except Pakistan and Afghanistan there is no Islamic country in Asia (Less ME). Rest all are secular democracies.

In one breath you are talking of aunt Eekanomi and in the same breath you refuse to accept Eekanomi with Uncle Industria!
 
Primarily, sir, aunt Eekananomi doesn't lay eggs in a place which does not have grandfather Justice there. Rizq grows only in a healthy society. Plus, rizq is not just the number of factories a country has, what about the National contentment factor?

the muslim countries were ecnomicaly back, because they use their money & mind only in fightning with each other, but not to get united & work for one misison  of Prophet Mohammad SAWW. they need to have a stratgic view over it and work for & onbehalf of imparting education to their children & to work hard for their economic reconstruction.

 
 
thanks
