INTRODUCTION

  • TWO KEY EXPRESSIONS

    • ECONOMIC PHILOSOPHIES

    • ECONOMIC SYSTEMS

  • PHILOSOPHY (LOVE OF WISDOM)

    • SEARCH FOR THE ULTIMATE REALITY AND PURPOSE OF HUMAN LIFE AND ACTIVITY

    • ADDITION OF THE TERM ‘ECONOMIC’ TO IT CONFINES THE SEARCH TO ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. HOWEVER, ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY IS INTERRELATED AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO TALK OF ONE IN ISOLATION OF THE OTHERS

  • ECONOMIC SYSTEM

    • INFLUENCED BY THE SOCIETY’S PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE

    • ORGANIZATION OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE WELL-KNOWN QUESTIONS OF WHAT TO PRODUCE, HOW TO PRODUCE, AND WHO SHOULD GET HOW MUCH OF WHAT IS PRODUCED GET ANSWERED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SOCIETY’S PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE

  • ULTIMATE REALITY AND PURPOSE OF HUMAN LIFE AND ACTIVITY

    • ULTIMATE REALITY: WORLDVIEW

    • PURPOSE (GOAL):

      • TO REALIZE THE WELL-BEING OF ALL WITHOUT GENERATING MACROECONOMIC IMBALANCES OR DAMAGING THE ENVIRONMENT

      • THERE IS HARDLY ANY DIFFERENCE OF OPINION ON THIS

      • DIFFERENCE ARISES WHEN WE DISCUSS WHAT CONSTITUTES WELL-BEING AND THE STRATEGY TO REALIZE THIS GOAL

2.WELL-BEING?

  • TO SATISFY THE MATERIAL NEEDS OF ALL

    • PHYSICAL NEEDS

    • FULL –EMPLOYMENT

    • EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION

    • ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL STABILITY

    • ECOLOGICAL BALANCE

  • TO SATISFY THE SPIRITUAL (NON-MATERIAL) NEEDS OF ALL

    • MENTAL PLACE AND HAPPINESS

    • FAMILY AND SOCIAL HARMONY

    • ABSENCE OF CRIME AND ANOMIE

    • INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM

      ALL OF THESE ARE MUTUALLY INTERDEPENDENT AND NECESSARY FOR HUMAN WELL-BEING – EXCESSIVE EMPHASIS ON ANY ONE AT THE EXPENSE OF THE OTHER WILL JEOPARDIZE THE REALIZATION OF WELL-BEING

  • EFFICIENCY AND EQUITY MAY BE DEFINED IN KEEPING WITH THIS CONCEPT OF WELL-BEING
