Europa a islam: religia jako źródło zróżnicowania systemu polityczno-ekonomicznego

Europe and Islamic world: religion as factor influencing political and economic systems


The subject of the paper is the impact of religion on the political-economic system. The author analyses models of Western and Islamic countries, comparing strength and weaknesses of both systems. The aim of this paper is to answer the question if any form of correlation exists between the role and strength of religion in particular cultures and the efficiency of the political system and their economies. This analysis leads to a positive conclusion, showing that Western countries, based to a higher degree upon rational and secular models are more efficient due to stronger involvement of the society in democratic procedures and market economy, while the Muslim countries experience a high impact of religion on all aspects of political and economic systems. This in effect leads to negative influence on economic growth.
