Modern economics is about what. What kind of school do you go to, what degrees do you earn, what you do for a living. Furthermore, what do you buy, what do you possess, what do you amount to?
Gandhian economics is the name we give to multiplicity of approaches that are all about how. How do you learn, how do you act, how do you live? Furthermore, how do you buy, how do you possess--do you only own things that you use, how do you make your life as a part of society?
How is infinitely more important than what. However, at present, what, being backed by money and power, is trampling over how. This has been the history of our modern era.
However much we are trampled upon and neglected, we must speak up. How we do it is very important.
Which is why I write and teach.
