Delivered 6 July 2009
This presentation was delivered at an international symposium on "Islamic Banking and Finance and the Current Global Financial Crisis" in Melbourne.
The symposium, then the largest ever held on the subject in Australia, was being opened by the Hon Nick Sherry, Assistant Treasurer of Australia and co-hosted by La Trobe University, National Australia Bank (NAB) and the Muslim Community Corporation of Australia (MCCA).
I was one of the two keynote speakers, the other being John Hewson, former leader of the Australian Liberal Party. The videos of the talks, including mine, can be viewed free on iTunes. The link leads to a number of videos on iTunes which are associated with LaTrobe University.
The numbering of the presentations changes from time to time as new presentations are added. When last checked my video, which has my name in the Description column, was line 17. The video unfortunately only shows me rather than my slides, so I have posted the slidepack on this website.
An earlier page on this website gives details of what else I did during the Australian trip and the state of Islamic finance in Australia.
I delivered the same lecture later that month in London to the Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance, and afterwards wrote an article based on the lecture.
