Currently, this a lecture on methodology for Islamic Economics delivered at IRTI Distance Learning Course on 28th May 2013. I will eventually convert it to the format of the previous lectures. It makes for a very good wrap of the first nine lectures, because it explains WHY conventional methodolody for statistics is defective, and so how using an Islamic methodology can improve things.

Instead of watching the lectures (which would take about 90 minutes), you can also read the transcript (L10transcript.docx) and view the slides (DOS4IRTI.pptx) together. The article on which this lecture is based (DoS2.doc) also attached below.

Currently there is no OPEN OFFICE format files on this lecture, though eventually I will put one in. HOWEVER, we have two movies in WMV format (part 1 and part 2) which can be played directly using the windows movie player. These will allow students to listen to/watch the lectures directly.
