Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad on Whether Muslims Can Be Free Marketeers
The biggest fear in the Muslim world is the association in their minds of free markets with imperialism, says Dr. Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad, president of the Minaret of Freedom Institute, in this interview. "But those of us familiar with the history of libertarian thought know that true devotees of the free market have always been opposed to imperialism." Ahmad says there is nothing inherent in Islam or the Koran that prohibits Muslim-majority countries from joining the world economy, something the Minaret of Freedom Institute seeks to educate Muslims and non-Muslims about.
