Gandhian economics is based on paradigm that is fundamentally different from that of modern economics. This book attempts to present a philosophical analysis of Gandhian world view, its accompanying value system and concepts, and examines in detail, now they bear upon economic principles and policy with special reference to the solution of the existing problems. The book offers a penetrating analysis of the dynamics of Gandhian thought and action. The study takes refreshingly new approach to the concept of man and society, goal of life, meaning of growth and the means to achieve the same while interpreting Gandhian economic thought. In a lucid manner it explores the economic 'ends' and 'means' put forward by Mahatma Gandhi for peace and prosperity of mankind. In a revealing analysis, the book presents that the paradigm underlying modern economics is responsible for creating world economics is responsible for creating world economic crisis, incapable of being tackled by the traditional economic tools. The dismal failure of both Marxism and liberalism to resolve the situation, calling into question the very foundations of economics is further shown. Gandhian holistic economics offering an alternative model of development needs a serious consideration in the present troubled times. Transformation in man and creation of economic structures based on a holistic paradigm is the challenge of the day. The intellectual readers will find this book to be fascinating but those who love challenges, will take it to be invaluable. Printed Pages: 160
