* Hussam Sultan in his contribution says, "Should banks be worried about the liberalisation of finance? Or should consumers be delighted that banks will be no more in the near future, apparently?
With facebook strongly moving into another area of privacy, finance, after completing the dominance in the main area of privacy, that is social life, relationships and connectivity, how would the financial sector look like?
What are the perks that consumers should expect with the most notable fintech of all moving in now?
From a distance the libra looks very liberating, just like facebook, with no fractional reserve banking or the heavy regulation of central banks and the seemingly free movement of funds.
Facebook will also be able to lend a lot more easily having profiled every single customer accurately and also able to verify where the money is going to and how it will be utilised and who is involved.
Interesting development or inevitable next chapter in the liberalisation or deliberalisation of societies? Will see"

* The Islamic Roots of the Modern Hospital is written by David W. Tschanz and published in Aramco website.
"The hospital shall keep all patients, men and women, until they are completely recovered. All costs are to be borne by the hospital whether the people come from afar or near, whether they are residents or foreigners, strong or weak, low or high, rich or poor, employed or unemployed, blind or signed, physically or mentally ill, learned or illiterate. There are no conditions of consideration and payment; none is objected to or even indirectly hinted at for non-payment. The entire service is through the magnificence of God, the generous one.
"The modern West’s approach to health and medicine owes countless debts to the ancient past: Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Rome and India, to name a few. The hospital is an invention that was both medical and social, and today it is an institution we take for granted, hoping rarely to need it but grateful for it when we do. Almost anywhere in the world now, we expect a hospital to be a place where we can receive ease from pain and help for healing in times of illness or accidents."
