Four generations of Islamic economists

Listed author(s):
  • Islahi, Abdul Azim

The present discussion falls under the broad category of modern history of Islamic Economic Thought. The present classification of generations and sorting the features of their work is important to understand the development of modern Islamic Economics since its inception during the early 20th century. A time span of 25 years has been taken for one generation of Islamic economists. Including the present team of young economists, Islamic economists have been classified into four generations. The date of the first work by a scholar has been considered as a criterion for his place in a generation, not his age.
