He is interested in the concerns of those around him in a world that seems chaotic. This approach has features in common with the advanced analysis of microeconomics which s...

Like most sectors of the economy in the Muslim world, Takaful is also affected by the imperative of a digital transition.

Economists have much to learn from Umberto Eco, a philosopher by training, a semiologist by conviction, because semiology constitutes for him the modern form of philosophy.
