Summary

"Radical thinkers might have a point" Financial Times

"One of the things we need now is new thinking on the fundamentals... Most readers will learn a good deal from his provocative insights."Emeritus Prof. David Myddelton

The roadblock in finance: the financial system limit

The book explains why the financial system that evolved from the early Italian bankers can expand no further. Then it examines the contradictions, wishful thinking and paradoxes that give rise to so much financial trouble.

To escape this system limit, evolution is needed, but the obsession with regulation and conformity act to prevent evolution

    In ancient times, Emperor Wu of Han dynasty bestowed Pixiu as 「Treasure of Emperor」. Pixiu was allowed to be used only among the royal families, but  forbidden  for  ordinary officials and folks. They  were  put to serve  as guardian spirits for royalties  and  will found at royal buildings  and cemeteries  during  the Han dynasty   since the  death of Qin Shi Huang Di in 210 B.CDuring  the  Qing  Dynasty ,  it  was  the most favoured celestial  creature carved to Emperor  Qian Long ‘s delight  and the Emperor would have  every favourite piece of  jades or important seal carved with  the image of  the Pi Xiu as  an  authoritarian  symbols  for  his high  ranked officials
     
    Until  the Qing Dynasty ,the  royalties  are the  only group  of  people  blessed with such  entitlement to use them and  all for some special reasons  and this secret practice has been  passed  down   over generations  since  thousand of years  and  was a  very much   kept  secret  traditional practice  until  the implementation  of  “China  Open Door  Economy  Policy  ”  in early fifties.But  why  has this  mythical creature  been selected for  such majestic role .What are its  mythical powers .Why  was Pi Xiu ‘s  Images  and painting   been  used  for  royalties seal  and on army   flags  representing  past grand majestic armies of early historical  China dynasties.  What  are its Mighty  Power !
     
    During the  early fifties in   China   ,It was rumoured  that  the  Soong  family has also a  White Jade Pi Xiu , which  was  a unique piece formerly  owned by a Qin Dynasty emperor that   has brought   on  immerse wealth luck to this  family that  their  three daughters  were  all married to three of the  most Powerful men  in China   .
     
    Pi Xiu   can be traced  back to early Han  period as probably in the beginning of Han dynasty, a book titled "Shi Zhou Ji" written by author Dong Fang Shuo was said to be    recording all kinds of rare treasures and unknown creatures  with mystical tales of strange creatures during the reign of Emperor Wu of Han dynasty (140~87 B.C). The book was recorded   during Han dynasty with subject  written about「Bixie- Pi Xiu 」- with its   content  mentioning  「Bixie」, eliminates evils".The descriptions of Pi xiu have varied throughout the ages possibly because people have intermixed both Pi Xiu and  Bixie together  but  the origin of Pi Xiu's (Tian Lu) status as a symbol of the acquisition and preservation of wealth has  much  been  appreciated until   today
     
    The belief in this mystical creature started as early as the Western Han Dynasty. While it is known now to have only one horn, ancient Bi Xie are found to have two horns sometimes. It is said to devour gold and silver , hence it is a wonderful wealth attracting  mystic  to have at home. It is also believed the creature can absorb evil and protect its owner .

    Bridging the Values Gap - How...

    Bridging the Values Gap Business has a values problem. It's not just spectacular public scandals like Enron (which, incidentally, had a great corporate values statement). Many companies fail to live up to the standards they set for themselves, alienating the public and leaving employees cynical and disengaged—resulting in lower productivity, less innovation, and sometimes outright corruption. The reason, argue top scholars and consultants Edward Freeman and Ellen Auster, is that all too often values are handed down from on high, with little employee input, discussion, or connection to the challenges and opportunities facing the organization. Although the words may be well-intentioned, they aren't reflected in the everyday practices, policies, and processes of the organization. This practically invites disconnects between intention and reality. To bridge this gap between the “talk” and the “walk”, Freeman and Auster provide a process through which organizations can collectively surface deeply held values that truly resonate with everyone, from top to bottom. Their Values Through Conversation (VTC) process focuses on four key types of values conversations: introspective (reflecting on ourselves and how we do things in the organization), historical (exploring our understanding of our past and how it impacts us), connectedness (creating a strong community where we work well together), and aspirational (sharing our hopes and dreams). By developing values through discussions—casual or formal, one-on-one or in groups—VTC ensures that values are dynamic and evolving, not static words on a wall or a website. Freeman and Auster offer advice, real-world examples, and sample questions to help you create values that are authentic and embraced because they are rooted in the lived experience of the organization.

    The Principles of Islamic Banking

    This book is about the principles of Islamic banking. It explains the prohibition of Riba, and how the prohibition of usury was common to all monotheist religions. The use of Islamic laws in banking can bring together investors and managers; and also to explain mudarabah which is an arrangement where an investor entrusts his capital or merchandise to an agent.
    
    The book explains the belief of economic progress; that development does not imply Westernization. The encouragement of private sector activity is not, however, accompanied by any deliberate policy of fostering competition. The authority in an Islamic state is an interest that extends not only to criminal law, but also to the commercial law which affects both local and foreign companies. Although the law is usually applied consistently within individual countries, there is less consistency among Islamic states. The Koran and the sunnah, of course, provide the basis of the law in all Islamic states, but interpretation varies considerably.
    
    It finally explains the greatest challenge to the world of Islamic commerce in the 20thcentury is, to transform the classical mudarabah into an equally smooth functioning and efficient modern Islamic bank with the potential of almost unlimited growth.
