Abstract

This is a detailed comment on a discussion paper of Munawar Iqbal published in an earlier issue of the same journal.It argues that it is difficult to quantify israf (frivolous expenditure on consumption.Therefore, a better way of analysing the impact of israf would be to start with a no-israf model of income determination. Then introduce israf into the picture israf to see the impact on the situation. The comments present such a model.
