About the Book

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
