wealth is of two kinds
Wealth is of two kinds
  • Intellectual
  • Material, economic
  • Intellectual wealth does not diminish.

The more you share, the more it grows

  • Material wealth has limits.

We may be satiated but not satisfied.

  • Material/economic wealth diminishes on consumption
  • Intellectual wealth can’t be diminished or destroyed.

eg. Germany, Japan, after the wars


source of all wealth
Source of all wealth
  • Nature
  • Whatever is in the Sun is on earth- 110 elements

थो असाक्सौ पुरुषः सोअहमस्मि

  • Intellect can create wealth even without natural material resources

eg: Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan


land sea

  • Adam Smith: Land labour & capital

Unless there is a great land mass, there cannot be natural wealth- ores, coal, oil & gas, forests, rivers, mountains

Russia, Canada, USA, Brazil, China, India – vast lands

  • Urbanisation –masses of population
  • Pressure on land-
  • Density of population high to reduce commutation costs
  • Suburban land holders become wealthy by sale of land to Realtors!
  • Skyscrapers and sub terraneons (Japan & Netherlands) structures

  • (Enjoy by renunciation of and sharing with others of what more is not needed by you; may you not accumulate; whose is this wealth?)

  • Let us all strive to live in the light of this wisdom.

you cannot
You cannot…

“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.

You cannot keep out trouble by spending more than you earn.

You cannot build character and courage

by taking away man’s initiative and independence.

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them

What they could do for themselves.”

-Abraham Lincoln

(Source: Freedom First, May 1989)


tainted and tattered flag of socialism and secularism 1
Tainted and tattered flag of Socialism (and “secularism”) (1)
  • Sri NaniPalkhiwala
  • History will record that the greatest mistake of the Indian republic in the first 50 years of its existence was to make less investment in human resources- education, family planning, nutrition and public health- than in brick and motor dams and factories.
  • We have too much government and too little administration; too many laws and too little justice; too many public servants and too little public service; too many controls and too little welfare.
  • Indian liberalisation encounters formidable opposition from three quarters.
  • The top heavy bureaucracy reluctant to shed its enormous powers
  • Influential politicians who prefer to let socialism remain the opium of the people and of whom it can be truly said that if ignorance is bliss, they should be the happiest men alive.

Tainted and tattered flag of Socialism (and “secularism”) (2)
    • Quite a few Indian businessmen men who are much interested in their own personal prosperity than in the future of the country and who preferred to flourish in the non competitive environment.
    • These three are the obstructionist forces…India continues to remain the only significant country in the free world to hold aloft the tainted and tattered flag of socialism.
  • “ We shut our eyes to the fact that socialism is to social justice, what ritual is to religion and dogma is to truth”.
  • Over taxation corrupted the national character overtly. The nation survived only because the tax system continued to breathe through loopholes and the economy used to breathe through window of tax evasion.
