A taboo subject for Arabian economists is freedom deficit or non-democratic regimes. It is questionable if Arabian region has registered substantial increase in economic and social development for more than two decades and a half; since 1960’s, we know that these growths have not been associated with political rights, nevertheless with democracy. Because the Islamic frame of reference offers politic leaders with limited possibilities of choosing, when they are being disputed, rarely measures of reform are being taken in country’s institutions. The question if religion can block the economic development and institutional changes or if it is just a native factor, requires giving a special importance today, because of Islamic movement and low economic performances in these Muslim countries. Some studies among immigrants settled in other countries have noticed that over time, because of changes and culture assimilation, exist transformation of perception and even emotional alterations. This article takes an empirical approach ad asks two questions: how differ economic systems and the actual Muslim institutions toward the other countries at the same level of economic development? And what is the impact of Islam and migration upon economic and social performance of these countries?
