Integral Finance - Akhuwat: A Case Study of the Solidarity Economy


A book that carries the term “finance” in its title could hardly bear less elements from the dominant finance literature than Integral Finance does and yet, from my point of view, is a source of legitimate pride for Akhuwat and the author. Author commences by trying to give a sense of her very motivation that roots back to her homeland, Pakistan, and describes her still existing characteristics
linked to cultural and religious facets of Pakistani land even though she long ago migrated to the west. She thinks most of the worth to tell stories of her homeland go untold and that she had the responsibility to make Akhuwat’s story known to the world.
