Meccanomics explores the growing middle class in the Muslim world and their propensity to consume, and assert conservative values. Nasr uses evidence of significant progress in commerce and freedom that have been made in the Islamic world, and ties that progress to an emerging Muslim middle class that is more interested in stability and trade than war and religion.
The book comprises of ten chapters. Each chapter introduces the reader to an emerging middle class that is developing the economic clout that is essential for inevitable liberalisation.
