Ep 5: How an old idea is disrupting the financial system. A conversation with Akhtar Mohammed.


Akhtar Mohammed makes a case for a financial system in which the social good of society is seen as a basic requirement for the financial sector. His understanding of the financial sector, if taken seriously, could disrupt a trillion dollar industry. He wrote an article on Open Democracy that provides a gist of the content for his upcoming book on Islamic Finance.

Akhtar Mohammed graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2011 with a B.A. majoring in Political Science and minoring in History. Upon graduation he lived in Singapore for a year where he completed the CIMA Diploma in Islamic Finance and continued his research in Islamic finance, banking, trade, and economics. He graduated with a Law degree from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London; and is currently pursuing an LLM from Osgoode Hall Law School.
