  • The Price of Paradise explores the prevalence of Islam and Islamic finance in Southeast Asia. Malaysia has opened Islamic finance universities to meet the need for experts in Islamic finance. From banks to fashion labels, Southeast Asian businesses strive to provide Sharia-compliant products. For some people Islamic finance provides a stability that cannot be offered by conventional finance. For others, it has still the same problem of inequality found in a capitalistic system.
