Islamic finance sits awkwardly in a modern business school

G20 finance ministers aim for more growth

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, left, speaks to Russian Labor Minister Maxim Topilin at a meeting of the Group of 20 finance ministers in Moscow, Russia, Friday, July 19, 2013. Stashing profits offshore may soon get tougher for companies, thanks to an ambitious plan released Friday by the finance chiefs of leading world economies aimed at forcing multinationals to pay more taxes. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko) The replacement of interest with profit and loss sharing, say its proponents, serves to direct capital to its most productive users, as opposed to individuals with the best connections, collateral, or social status. Why do you consider it bogus? Islamic banking, in its current form, will go down in history as a mighty deceit based on an operational principle that is simply unfeasible. Islamic banks give and take interest as a matter of course, though under the guise of commissions, fees, penalties or profit shares.

Page 1 of 1 Moscow -- The top financial officials of the world's largest economies issued a joint statement Saturday endorsing continued government spending to prime the global economy for a full recovery. "Growth and creating jobs remains our priority," the statement from the finance ministers and central bank governors of the Group of 20 countries said. It added that the governments in the organization, which collectively represent about 90 percent of the world's economic activity, "are fully committed to taking decisive actions to return to a robust, job-rich growth path." Previous communiques issued after such meetings had also indicated support among some members for balancing budgets, not just spending to get out of recession.

Davis for The Financial Times) The ministers also said they were "mindful of the risks and unintended negative side effects of extended periods of monetary easing." They did not directly address the situation in the U.S., where speculation that the Federal Reserve may soon wind down its bond-buying program has roiled markets around the world especially in developing economies. In a separate statement, IMF head Christine Lagarde said the meeting saw constructive discussions on "the spillover effects of monetary policies, the implications of recent market volatility, and the need for balanced and credible fiscal strategies." "''The global economy remains too weak and unemployment is too high in many countries," she said. "There has also been an increase in financial market volatility and tightening of financial conditions." The G-20 communique called on members "to ensure that international and our own tax rules do not allow or encourage multinational enterprises to reduce overall taxes paid by artificially shifting profits to low-tax jurisdictions." On Friday the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development unveiled a 15-point plan for a united front to fight tax avoidance by multinational companies. If adopted, the measures would close loopholes and allow countries to tax profits held in offshore subsidiaries. It would also target such practices as deducting the same expense more than once, in more than one country.

Finance board plans special meeting

Why do physicists gravitate towards jobs in finance?

1 property tax payment deadline quickly approaches, resentment is building among residents and elected officials alike as they prepare to write checks for tax bills they still don't understand. In response to the public outcry, Board of Finance members Jerry Bosak and Tim Abbazia have scheduled a special meeting next week aimed at giving residents a better understanding of the recent property revaluation's effect on their property taxes. The July 29 meeting will include a detailed presentation from the city Assessor's Office and allow residents to ask questions or voice their opinions on the revaluation process, Abbazia said. "I know there's a lot of residents who have concerns and want to have an official forum to voice those concerns," said Abbazia, a Democrat. "We thought we would have a detailed presentation first, because we want to make sure people have the right information.

The risks of holding cash most frequently identified by the finance executives are limiting innovation and new product development (52 percent) and holding back growth opportunities (49 percent). Finance executives also say holding cash risks limiting market share expansion (46 percent), geographic expansion (42 percent) and new market entry (40 percent). "CFOs, pursuing growth, appreciate the importance of investing cash wisely, but they need clearer visibility of their business to make confident use of resources," said Schulman. "Given the high levels of corporate cash reserves seen in many markets around the world in recent years, it's clear that CFOs who have access to reliable information will be best placed to use that cash with greater precision to generate a higher returns on investment."

In the 1950s, understanding the statistical properties of electrons in semiconductors was exploited by physicists at Bell Telephone laboratories to invent the transistor, the tiny switch that is used to build the logic circuitry that underpins the operation of the microchip. By backing away from the near-impossible challenge of understanding a complicated system in every detail, the strategy is instead to focus on the more modest goal of computing the odds that the system will behave in a particular way. Precisely the same ideas are used to model the financial markets, in which case the "system" could be the price of an asset and the "components" would then be the range of things that can influence its price. The most famous equation in finance was published in 1972 and is named after American economists Fischer Black and Myron Scholes. The Black-Scholes equation provided a means to value "European options", which is the right to buy or sell an asset at a specified time in the future.

Pakistan launches media campaign to boost Islamic finance

The campaign, developed alongside local Islamic banks, would help the industry reach ambitious targets including a doubling of its branch network in five years and a 15 percent share of the banking system, Anwar added. As of March, the industry held an 8.7 percent share of banking assets and 9.7 percent of deposits, central bank data shows. The country's Islamic banking industry includes five fully-fledged Islamic banks and five takaful (Islamic insurance) firms, with an additional 12 conventional banks offering services through Islamic windows. Anwar added the central bank is also at an "advanced stage" of issuing a detailed sharia governance framework, which would outline roles for directors, management and sharia boards.

The central bank is rolling out a five-year plan for Pakistan's Islamic banking sector, which follows religious principles such as bans on interest and pure monetary speculation.

Former socialist Finance minister George Papaconstantinou at the Greek Parliament in Athens on January 17, 2013. Because he is a lawmaker, Parliament has to approve the lifting of immunity before any prosecution can proceed. In a secret ballot late Monday, 220 deputies in the 300-seat Parliament voted in favor of the former minister being prosecuted for at least one charge, and 166 for all three. Seventeen deputies were absent. Addressing lawmakers before the vote, Papaconstantinou denied wrongdoing and said he was being targeted "for one simple reason, being the finance minister who put the country in the bailout process." A council of judges will convene, probably later this week, to decide whether Papaconstantinou should face the criminal charges outlined in Parliament. While it is not illegal to hold a Swiss bank account, and there is no evidence that anyone broke the law, suspicions are high in Greece that some of those named in the list may have opened the accounts to avoid paying taxes to the Greek state.

"The OECD action plan as it is on the table in Moscow now is a milestone in this respect." A preliminary draft of the OECD's plan, seen by Reuters, showed the organisation had already identified a number of specific profit-shifting schemes and aimed for agreement on specific changes to international tax rules in one to two years. Corporate taxation has become a hot political topic since media reports highlighting how multinationals reduce their tax bills struck a nerve with voters themselves increasingly pinched by higher taxes. "I believe that by now there is broad international consensus that states should not aggressively compete for each other's tax bases. I am optimistic that we can agree on mutual standards.

Reduce Finance Industry Unemployment: Stop Making the Wrong Hires

Building a nurturing and engaging environment involves choosing the right online platform for your community. It must be equally effective as an outlet for reaching the type of candidates you're looking for, as well as acting as a means for driving conversation, sharing news and trends, and driving buzz around job opportunities. Both American Express and McGraw Hill Financial utilize talent communities as a mechanism for recruiting within the finance industry. 2. Step up candidate evaluation methods.

That bullishness has helped propel tech stocks higher this year, with the Nasdaq rising 19% in 2013, in line with the rise in the S&P 500 index. In fact, the Nasdaq is now trading at its highest level since late 2000, before the second wave of the dot-com crash brought it back to earth. It's now roughly doubled since bottoming out in early 2009, in the wake of the financial meltdown.
