Rated 3/5 based on 1 customer reviews


Description :

"About the book, Ramchandra Guha, Author and Columnist quotes “A most interesting and unusual man. In this fine analytical study of the work of J C Kumarappa, Mark Lindley rehabilitates a forgotten pioneer and shows the vital relevance of his ideas on current debates in ecological and development economics.

Written in elegant prose, this book deserves a wider audience within the academy and beyond.” This book introduces us to the world of a highly sophisticated economist from whom present-day economists of the non-European regions have much to learn. Kumarappa’s view of the transformation of the Indian economy under the British…included a critique of the way in which orthodox Western economic theory abstracts an allegedly natural, impersonal market from all manner of social and political as well as ecological aspects of human life. Mark Lindley not only tells a fascinating story of an almost forgotten Gandhian economist but also recounts the history of economics in light of the quest for justice and sustainability.
