Research Paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: -, - (Elite College), language: English, abstract: The current rapid growth rate of Islamic banking in the world market has made the banking approach a significant contributor to economic growth. However, few studies have been done to determine the extent to which conventional banks can survive in an Islamic banking environment. The purpose of this study was to assess the financial performance of financial institutions and relate it to their involvement in Islamic banking. The study took an explorative and a quantitative approach, whereby literature was acquired from online sources for use in assessing the current state of knowledge, and financial performance data for Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs were acquired from Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The literature was reviewed in the literature review section while financial performance records were assessed using Microsoft Excel 2011 software package. The study findings determined that conventional banks have varying degrees of success in their Islamic banking ventures, whereby high levels of fluctuations characterize the institutions' financial records. According to the exponential growth of Goldman Sachs in 2012 upon the issuance of sukuks, it is relatively easy for conventional banks to achieve growth through offering of Islamic banking products. However, according to the study findings, Islamic banking is not suitable for banks that want to achieve consistency in exponential growth, but is highly relevant for institutions that want to remain stable in their financial performance despite changes in market conditions.

Praise for At Your Own Risk 'Every global company faces risks from all sides: competition, earthquakes, pandemics, or the practices of suppliers far down their value chain. Gary Lynch knows how hundreds of companies handle-or mishandle-risks, and he explains how the best of them find opportunities in the risks they face.' -Madeleine Albright, former United States Secretary of State 'Although many corporate boards and managers understand that success means accepting risk, they believe they have dealt with the problem by mathematical modeling. They are dangerously wrong. In a globalized, just-in-time world of cascading technological change, terrorism, and sophisticated crime, a setback can metastasize quickly into a catastrophe. Gary Lynch, a real risk management pro, brilliantly spells out in specific cases why this is so, and how we can begin to cope with this new world of risk on steroids.' -R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence 'Gary Lynch articulates an experienced-based, well-reasoned, and spot-on assess-ment of risk management realities that all corporations, large or small, should embrace and make core to their corporate cultures. A one-of-a-kind guide for identifying and assessing real risks and their impacts if left untended.' -Dave Carpenter, Vice President for Global Security, PepsiCo and former Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security 'Lynch confronts the critical issues of identifying and managing diverse risks in today's complex and interdependent global marketplace. Board members, senior executives, and line managers should use this book as a sanity/reality check and challenge their organizations risk readiness. All will find his practical insight and guidance invaluable.' -Craig Goldman, director on numerous public and private boards and former CIO, Chase Manhattan Bank 'As business tries to maximize profits and increase market share they create change in their structure. This book provides insight for all levels of management on how to identify, reduce, or minimize those exposures caused by this change. This is a must-read for all levels of management. ' -Michael Liebowitz, past president of the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS), Inc., and Director of Insurance and Risk Management, New York University

PRAISE FOR ECONOSPINNING 'We know that economists are dismal scientists, but scientists nevertheless. This book casts doubt about the science of economic journalism by showing that it's often politically biased, superficial, and inconsistent with facts. An important book.' --Baruch Lev, Philip Bardes Professor of Accounting and Finance, New York University Stern School of Business 'Econospinning shines the spotlight on how economic data are chronically misreported by journalists and manipulated by political pundits. Epstein raises the bar in how to think about and interpret economic statistics.' --Bill Dudley, Advisory Director, The Goldman Sachs Group 'Bull markets in bad economic ideas are a lot like bubbles in financial assets--it takes just the right mixture of the cynical and the credulous to produce really extreme outcomes. And, as with asset bubbles, the sooner bad ideas are deflated, the less damage they do. Gene Epstein's clear-eyed analysis in Econospinning is a timely corrective for many of the flawed notions that have made their way into circulation in recent years.' --Lou Crandall, Chief Economist, Wrightson ICAP 'A shocking and provocative book. Econospinning shows how the brightest and most credentialed economists--from Krugman in the Times to bestselling author Steven Levitt--abuse data, and in rather blatant ways at that.' --Amar Bhidé, Lawrence D. Glaubinger Professor of Business Columbia University Graduate School of Business 'Gene Epstein preaches that a statistic is not how it's labeled; it's how it's collected. Beware the intersection of an emotionally evocative label and a spuriously precise number.' --Neal Soss, Managing Director, Credit Suisse 'Gene Epstein's book will raise journalistic standards and cause readers everywhere to mind the news with more care. Paul Krugman has now met his match.' --Kent Smetters, Associate Professor of Insurance and Risk Management, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

The Cart That Changed the World

From his birth in Ardmore, Indian Territory, in 1898, the life of Sylvan Nathan Goldman (1898-1984) spans almost the entirety of Oklahoma's modern history. He stands as a symbol of America's twentieth-century pioneers, the developers of the business frontier of the state and the nation. His rich, productive life is recorded in these pages. Goldman gained an early familiarity with business, for his father and uncles were merchants in pioneer Oklahoma. After service in World War I he joined his brother in business, and the two became successful retail grocery merchants in the Tulsa area. Undaunted by the Great Depression, the brothers moved to Oklahoma City and soon built up the Standard-Humpty Dumpty chain of groceries, the nucleus of what is now a major national chain. Goldman was an innovator. Early in his career as a grocer he developed many of the advertising and marketing techniques now in common use by supermarkets. But perhaps his greatest and best-known invention was the shopping cart, a device that has affected the lives of virtually all Americans and hundreds of millions of people around the world. The shopping cart spawned a whole list of other inventions that have aided retailing in countless ways. A leader in his industry, Goldman served as president of the Super Market Institute and vice-president of the National Association of Food Chains and of the International Food Congress. Through these offices he spread his innovative ideas throughout the world. After his 'retirement' in 1959, Goldman bestowed his time and money on the arts and humanities, religious work, and civic and national affairs. He contributed notable works of art to Oklahoma institutions and was a major supporter of the Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies at the University of Oklahoma and related projects. In retirement Goldman continued to exercise his business talents in insurance, savings and loan associations, banking, real estate, and land development. He also continued his humanitarian pursuits, many of them anonymously. His career contributed greatly to society in Oklahoma and the United States. He is greatly honored in his state and in the nation, as an inspiring example of achievement through hard work, innovation, and dedication. In January 1983 the Oklahoma Blood Institute moved to the Sylvan N. Goldman Center, named for Goldman, who donated $1.5 million for the center. Terry P. Wilson, a native of El Reno, Oklahoma, retired as Professor of Native American Studies at the University of California in Berkeley. He is the author of several books on American Indians, including Teaching American Indian History and The Underground Reservation: Osage Oil, and coeditor of Peoples of Color in the American West.
