Western economics thinks along the trajectory of an arrow shot upwards towards the sky--ever harder striving, higher so-called standards of living, all at the cost of fragmentation of the psyche and the family. Means are used to achieve the ends. The mathematics of Western economics is a linear thinking.
Gandhian economics thinks along a gentle curve, a circle to be precise. Means and ends are ever convertible and create wholeness. The mathematics of Gandhian economics is circular thinking.
Friends, we are not individuals competing to get to the top. We are One. Together we make, not a hierarchy, but a circle.
