9780670096237 6149d4d99aa99adaf0d344e4 Economist Gandhi: The Political Economy of the Mahatma, Its Roots and Relevance https://cdn1.storehippo.com/s/607fe93d7eafcac1f2c73ea4/6149d4da9aa99adaf0d34503/webp/41aevy-jt5l-_sx314_bo1-204-203-200_.jpg

This book is a refreshing take on Gandhi's economic philosophy. It provides insights into the hidden facet of Gandhi's personality, and his thoughts on economics and capitalism. The book captures aspects of Gandhi's thinking usually missed by those who are sure they know Gandhi. This is probably the first book on Gandhi that claims that Gandhi was not against business and capitalists. In fact, the author maintains that Gandhi was a Baniya by caste, and this is what explains Gandhi's positive approach towards business, trade and wealth.

Review

In this bold and erudite book, Rao reveals Gandhi to be both a truly global figure and a formative and lucid thinker about the purpose of business, whose relevance has only grown as we face the grand challenges of our own times. ― Geoffrey Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History, Harvard Business School

Be prepared to be schooled and surprised by Gandhi's delightful avatars - the worldly ascetic, who was the enemy of poverty; the pragmatist, openly experimenting; the trustee, who loved the market but not ownership; the imp, always playful - all these and more in Jerry Rao's bracing book.
