Description

"The History of Indian Economic Thought" provides insights into both economic issues and the workings of the Indian mind. The book offers an overview of economic thought in the sub-continent. Arguing that it would be inappropriate to rely on formal economic analyses, it draws on a wide range of sources; epics, religious and moral texts for the early period and public speeches, addresses, and newspaper articles for controversies from the 19th century onwards. What emerges is a mosaic reflecting India's different cultures and civilizations. Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam all address economic issues and British colonial rule had a deep impact, both in propagating Western economic ideas and in provoking Indian theories of colonialism and underdevelopment. The author concludes with chapters on Ghandian economics and on Indian economic thought since Independence.
