Indonesia: Faculty of Economics (FE) in Yogyakrta State University – Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta. A keynote speech at the (soft) opening of a new program in Islamic Economics under FE UNY. I gave introductory remarks on the importance of the Quranic basis for an Islamic economics that develops the “human” comprehensively, and does not play into the international economic game of the Top 1%. What we have so far in “Islamic economics” is mostly micro thinking that finds the best hiyal (legal tricks) to serve the same material, capitalistic, monopolistic and greedy local and world economic systems.
