Nah - think about Islamic Finance and Accounting - they believe in no interest rates. That is literally retarded - how the fuck do you even scam people if you can take out loans for free?

Islam is more than just a religion, it has its own justice system, its own regulations and so forth. Its a complete all in one society recipe for low iq subhumans. Without it the middle east wouldve been Africa-tier.

Sorry for the /pol/ rethoric but its the truth

No:
From my ignorant perspective islam introduces risk. Like maybe my business makes something in the wrong shade of green and that happens to be against someones interpretation of the quran so i get beheaded and my business gets razed to the ground.

And i think some of those who adhere to the islam are susceptible to follow their leaders without question, so then you'll need to worry about trying to staying on the good side of those leaders. If you're one of the leaders and own a business, then islam is good for you.

No. They're sitting on my oil which I need to substract.
Pajeets get off my fucking oil till I don't force Russia to nuke everyone. I don't think Russia can stand it anymore, they have to grab the arab by the balls and squeeze him of oil, same for the turks.

It could open you up to having connections, in the same way being a chink opens up the chinese business market. Otherwise I don't see how it would matter

Having Abdul bootleg chinese knockoffs then fence them to you at a discount is not good business.

Is Islam good for business?
I think you will find no concept that is universally good or bad "for business" in general. Some businesses will thrive under Islam (halal meat, islamic banking, carpet making, certain kinds of clothing, etc), some will wither (entertainment, alcohol, pork, etc), most will probably be completely unaffected (carpentry, IT, accounting, etc).

There are some interesting concepts to provide business stimulus, like Zakat, the islamic duty to give 2-3% of your personal wealth as alms each and every year. Savings are bad for the economy and this makes sure most money is kept in circulation on top of increasing equality (lowering the Gini coefficient).

While the core of Islam is rather strict when it comes to haram business practices, it's only a set list of things. The problem is that a lot of Muslims go far beyond that, introducing a moral or religious aspect to almost all types of business, often hindering innovation, diversity and equiality.

if you can take out loans for free?
You usually cannot. In islamic banking the bank *literally* owns your house or car and then sells it to you bit by bit for above market value. You're not lending money, you're leasing whatever you want to buy with the money until you've paid pretty much the same amount as if you had taken out a loan at a traditional bank.

Well its good for business if you think that instantly removing half the population from the workforce is a good idea.

your looking at a photo

this photo is probably paid for and made with parts from. oil

oil is why this man has a lamborghini. he gives nothing back, he creates nothin, he merely lives where they drill.

they are paid on avg. 65k a year, to anyone living here. its a tax like credit. fancier guys have more money, because well life.

islam is a form of govt. it keeps bitches in line, or it acids their face. it keeps fags in line because it kills them. it also puts to much faith in an ideology. which kills it in the long run.

If you're talking full Sharia, Saudi tier, their position on usury is that of the Catholic church in the high middle ages. That is, completely hostile to interest on loans etc.

The money going into The gulf tyrannies is only because of oil. If they ran out of oil no more sports cars and 6 star hotels and artifical islands.

But, if you're selling luxury items? You're in luck.

Savings are bad for the economy

Literally all progress comes from savings.

You're against the witch hunt, so you must be a witch.

Sound logic there. Did you even read more than two words from my post?

Literally all progress comes from savings.

Nope, if anything then only from *spending* savings. Savings alone help nobody (except maybe banks).

Savings are one of the reasons why we have to keep printing more and more money and why states go into debt to finance private savings. A very simplified showcase: If businesses pay 80 in salaries, make 20 in profits and sell goods for 100 the cycle only closes if workers spend 80 and business owners spend 20 on goods themselves. If workers start saving 20, there is 100 supply, but only 80 demand. Unless counteracted (eg by 20 public spending by the state), this is a spiral to the bottom as in the next cycle wages would be cut to produce only 80 worth of goods, etc, etc.
Saving a year or two to finance a big investment is not what I'm calling out here. Stashing money for decades just for the sake of saving is awful from an economic point of view.
