'Meltdown indicates demise of communist, capitalist systems': KU seminar on global financial crisis
Karachi: Since the communist and capitalist economic systems have both failed, the only logical alternative is the Islamic economic system.
This was observed by Dr Shahida Wizarat of the Applied Economics
Research Centre (AERC), University of Karachi, while speaking at a seminar on
"Global financial crisis: impact on the world economy and the developing
countries" held at the university on Thursday.
The day-long seminar was
organised by the university's Area Study Centre for Europe (ASCE) in
collaboration with the Hanns Seidel Foundation, Islamabad.
argued that Islamic banks appeared less affected by the economic downturn as
compared to the other banks. She said that the current international financial
crisis might change the course of history.
The crisis, she recalled, had
started in the housing sector in the United States where interest rates were
very low. Investment firms and hedge funds also got into house financing and
there was intense competition in the sector.
Adjustable mortgage rates
were introduced to attract buyers. When the US Federal Reserve increased the
interest rate, people began to default on loans and there were foreclosures of
properties by banks and financial institutions, she added.
her, the previous economic crisis of similar proportions was felt in 1973 with a
steep rise in the oil prices in the aftermath of the Arab-Israel war. This had
profoundly impacted the social, economic and political spheres and an important
outcome was that the role of the state was greatly enhanced.
of the Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (Piler) quoted the
adage "capitalism for the poor and socialism for the rich", and said this was an
apt discription of the situation prevailing in the world.
economies of most countries could be categorised into two sectors - formal or
state sector, run through taxes etc, and the people's sector - adding that "the
masses only get what is left over."
He observed that the global
financial crisis that started from the US had now turned into a worldwide
economic crisis. "Perhaps the US will ultimately benefit from this crisis," he
Mr Ercelan was of the view that the crisis was rooted in the
inequality between nations/states and between individuals. He pointed out that
the average per capita income in the developed world was around $25,000 while it
was just $1,000 in developing countries.
He observed that an impact of
the financial crisis on the world economy was a downward revaluation of
properties, assets, etc. "If there had been less international economic
integration, or in other words less globalisation, the impact of this crisis
would not have been so severe," he said.
In this regard, he pointed out
that the countries in the developing world or the emerging economies of
south-east Asia, for instance, appeared more severely-hit than the
inward-looking economies, for they were trade dependent.
Asif Iqbal of
the Social Policy Development Centre (SPDC) told the audience that since
Pakistan was not so well-integrated in the global economy, the impact of the
international financial crisis in the short-term was not severe.
Managing Director Dr Khalida Ghous summed up the seminar's proceedings.
