Economics Of Mahavira ► 02 ► [02.03] The Economic Concept of Development - Tempting and Useful

Posted: 23.12.2005

In this context, let us analyse the philosophy of Mahavira.
Mark two words:

  • attractive and useful.

An article may appear tempting but may not be useful; and another which is useful but may not be tempting. And yet another article could be tempting, attractive and useful. Everybody becomes rich inspired by the attitude of self-interest, so that wealth, when it grows, is attractive but not useful.

In human beings, self-interest is even otherwise dominant, so much so that individual self-interest has created several problems in society. If attempts are made to accelerate this process, the result could be visualized by a look at the conditions of the present times.
