Amusing Usages re Islamic Finance
I caught a brief CNBC discussion on Islamic finance with some chucklehead in London, I liked the usage "Traditional Finance" versus "Islamic Finance" - useful, although I find the "We in the Islamic world have a more social approach" to be exactely the kind of dishonest posturing that Timur Kuran in his various articles and works (as in Islam and Mammon : The Economic Predicaments of Islamism) takes whacks at.
More social my ass.

I feel like a little happy dance almost is justified, even if it merely brings them sorta up to date.

At least we don't have to wait 10 seconds for a page to load.
Design is a bit busy, but it probably suits the audience.

What can I say?
