Hindu Approach to Indian Economy

Global Challenges and Opportunities

By Bharat Jhunjhunwala

This book makes a path-breaking effort to build two bridges. The first bridge is between the Hindu tradition and modern economics. The author holds that the market system is consistent with the Hindu tradition. However, it should be actively controlled by the state in public good. The second bridge is between Hindu tradition and socialist politics. The socialist paradigm does not ensure that the socialist leadership will work in the interests of the people. The only motivation for it to do so would be spiritual growth. The socialist leaders may work for social good only when this spiritual objective is placed before them. The book calls for an end to this schism in the soul of India and builds a new vision that is Hindu, socialist and market-oriented at the same time.
