Economics of Babu Gandhi and Adam Smith

Recently Bharat Dogra wrote a piece on “Economics & Gandhi's human touch” in the ET. Few bits from the piece:

  • …Mahatma Gandhi was to bring economics closer to human concerns: "What we seek to do is substitute false and non-human economics by true and human. Not killing competition but life giving co-operation is the law of the human being."
  • Gandhi's views on international trade: "That economics is untrue which ignores or disregards moral values. The extension of the law of non-violence in the domain of economics means nothing less than the introduction of moral values as a factor to be considered in regulating international commerce."

Gopalkrishna Gandhi, the Governor of West Bengal wrote an article on the Economy of words and writing” where he reproduces some of early letters of babu Gandhi’s writings and logics of using pen to bring words into a paper. Would it be possible that pen marries men without paper or vice versa to bring words from heaven?
