Economics Of Mahavira ► 08 ► [08.14] Parameters of the New Economic Policy - Individual And The World

Posted: 28.04.2006

Let us now do some thinking in the context of both, the individual and the world. Our thinking processes should not be in the context only of the individual aside from the world, nor of the total world dissociated from the individual. It is only the twin context of the individual and world that should guide our thought and policy.

When we formulate a policy for the global economy, the first thing that must guide us is that the subject policy does not become a threat to world peace and does not become a threat to the peace of the individual. That which becomes a threat to the peace of the individual will destroy it and will be a danger to world peace. That which breaks the peace of the world will also destroy the peace of the individual. What does not become a threat to the peace of both the individual and the world ought to be the first guiding parameter of a new economic policy.
