21st Century Economics: An Islamic Approach
This is my first attempt at creating a a radical and revolutionary course on Economics, which overcomes three major pedagogical problems of modern econonomics.  Achieving this requires a complete paradigm shift ; to accomplish this, one needs a DIFFERENT place to stand on, from which to provide an alternative view. There are many possible such frameworks; I have chosen the Islamic framework for many reasons. On this basis, not only do I explain the deep and fundamental flaws in modern economic theory, I also explain HOW it came to pass that these flaws became widely accepted, and are currently taught in leading universities all over the world. I also provide an alternative, which overcomes these flaws. 
For a radical course, start with L0 -- Preliminaries, you can skip L1 and L2 which deal with the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra, and go on to L3 which starts on the errors and flaws of supply and demand theory for micro. 
This is the ORIGINAL course website. I have created a COPY [Economics: An Islamic Approach] , which I am hoping to create a better organized set of course materials and lectures, with the help of the STUDENTS who took the original course.

For casual visitors -- the recommended SINGLE lecture to watch is L4: Islamic Origins of Science.  If you have time to watch one more, than look at L5: Keynesian Economics and Science-- Or watch the Urdu video Fundamental Flaws in Western Social Science .  To access some of the reference materials linked -- you must join AZ-Research-Group
