Anti-Debt: Islam and the Critique of Finance Capitalism

최근 몇 년간 일어난 금융위기들은 우리에게 금융의 주요성을 일깨워줬습니다. 하지만 우리는 주류 금융 관행들와 네트워트들에 대한 대안적 존재에 대해서는 아직 제대로 알고 있지 못 합니다. ‘이슬람 세계의 뉴욕’인 말레이시아의 수도 쿠알라룸프에서의 현장 경험을 바탕으로, 이번 강연에서 Daromir Rudnyckjy 교수는 현재 금융 네트워크의 중심인 뉴욕, 런던 그리고 도쿄의 대안으로서의 이슬람 금융에 대해 이야기하고자 합니다.

강연을 맡아주신 캐나다, University of Victoria의 Daromir Rudnyckjy 교수는 인류학자입니다. 강의 내용은 다음과 같습니다.

<강의 내용 요약>
Following the recent financial crises there has been a widespread sense that finance is important, but little understanding of what alternatives might exist to dominant financial practices and networks. Based on fieldwork in Malaysia, where the state seeks to make its capital, Kuala Lumpur, the “the New York of the Muslim world,” this lecture describes the creation of a global Islamic alternative to the financial network centered on New York, London, and Tokyo. I argue that Islamic finance experts in Malaysia are developing a response to the global financial predicament that differs from that offered by both Wall Street and the Occupy movement. In the wake of the cataclysm of 2008, the world’s largest financial institutions requested loans and other financial guarantees to maintain the solvency of the financial system. The Occupy movement called for forgiveness for the millions mired in debt and those adversely afflicted by precipitous economic decline. However, both of these interventions continue to take debt for granted as the central tool of finance. In contrast, this lecture argues that Islamic finance experts challenge the very foundations of finance by posing investment, rather than debt, as the central mechanism for the mobilization of capital. By putting limits on leverage Islam offers the promise of a finance that constrains the debt-inebriated excesses of conventional finance. In so doing, the essay shows how efforts to create an Islamic alternative to conventional finance precipitate debates over the form and substance of Islam itself.
