    Gandhi's economic theories were a part of his vision of self-government, which meant not just freedom from colonial rule but the achievement of self-reliance and self-respect by the villagers of India. Areas examined include:
    * consumption behaviour
    * industrialization, technology and the scale of production
    * trusteeship and industrial relations
    * work and leisure
    * education as human capital
