The theory of economic order is hardly developed in Arab economic literature. At best, it is addressed in politics to compare the various economic systems and to derive there from the implications for economic policy. This situation may be ascribed mainly to the fact that Arab states - despite the unifying element constituted by Islam as a religion encompassing all aspects of life - did not have, historically speaking, a homogeneous development, except for the classical era of the Muslim empire which, even itself, was not free from regional and geographical differences. During that era, there developed almost everywhere an economic system based on the free choice of economic actors, though directed, in almost all Arab territorial states, toward trade (bazaar capitalism).
