COMMENT: In past posts, we have noted the ideological underpinnings of Adbusters  magazine, which appers to be the genesis point of the Occupy Wall Street  movement. We have also noted editor Kalle Lasn’s Estonian background and familial heritage suggestive of inclusion in the milieu of the vertriebene groups.
His suggestion that the world’s poor and disenfranchised turn to Islamic economic and social theory and practice is priceless, and frankly typical of the poor quality of the thinking he manifests.
- The grinding social and economic inequality and injustice that pervades the Arab and Muslim worlds is exceedingly well documented.
- Lasn’s suggestion that “Islamonomics” represents some sort of viable alternative to “The World Bank” demonstrates fundamental ignorance of contemporary ideology. The World Bank  is overtly sympathetic to the corporatist models upon which the Muslim Brotherhood ’s economic theories  are predicated.
- In light of Lasn’s Estonian background and the fact that his family took refuge in Nazi Germany during the closing days of World War II, we wonder if Lasn’s fondness for “Islamonomics” is rooted in ignorance and superficiality, or a deeper fascist historical construct.
EXCERPT. . . . Perhaps, as the disparity between global wealth and destitution continues to grow, people living in the impoverished parts of the world will begin to opt out of the Western model of economic thought and embrace a version of Islamonomics instead. When confronted with the possibility of a brutal future, the central idea of all Islamic thought, that of a “just society” built upon compassion, justice and equity, has powerful appeal.
If liberal capitalism continues to falter and favor the rich and if our market-based economic logic cannot be “the rising tide that lifts all boats,” then a mass reevaluation of economic theory may sweep the globe. In an effort to rectify profound economic imbalance and save themselves, people may embrace a form of Zakat: the practice whereby all who are able donate a portion of their wealth to the poor. They may decide to protect what’s left of the natural wealth of their country by designating swaths of area Hima: inviolate zones that are protected from the reach of multinational corporations. And they may embrace the notion of Haraam: the idea that all wealth obtained to the detriment of others is forbidden.
It would be an epic rethink – a tectonic paradigm shift; a great leap beyond the brand of soulless neoclassical thinking that defines our economic reality today. It would inject an element of humanity into the callous philosophical systems underlying the World Bank and the WTO and forever shift the foundations upon which economic summits and university curriculum stand. . . .
