Abstract

Islamic macro models are two categories. The first was inspired by Mannan (1970), Siddiqui (1981, 2006) and Chapra (1985, 1996). It is elaborated by Khan and Mirakhor (1994), Iqbal and Mirakhor (2011), in addition to Mirakhor and Zaidi (2007). It uses a pure equity-based system, keeping the concept of a stable equilibrium, to draw conclusions about efficiency, equilibrium and stability. It ignores the institutional details of the monetary and financial structure. The second proposes an institutional structure of the monetary of financial sector of an Islamic economic system, with distinctive features of money creation and finance allocation, with the necessary instruments for the anchor and conduct of monetary policy. Shari'ah behavioral rules have been translated into an institutional structure. It uses an updated Al-Jarhi (1981, 1983) with several consequent modifications and improvements to do away with the neoclassical IS-LM, and prepare to switch to a more realistic disequilibrium structure . Based on Al-Jarhi’s updated and modified model, is proposed for economic development and stabilization. Implementation highlights gradualism and institutional competition as driving forces. The legal and regulatory environment is modified to provide both conventional and Islamic institutions working side-by-side to have an equal opportunity, leaving competition to have the final say.
