Media folly on B R Ambedkar, yet again!!

In the print version of today's The Times of India, the newspaper has quoted two lines from the writings of B R Ambedkar on ethics and economics. It tells public only the half truth by saying he was "politician and jurist". What stops them saying "he was economist too"?

He had double degrees of Masters in Economics and double degrees in Doctorate in Economics.

Anyway the full quote is as below:


"History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them."

Read the below two compilations from his writings:

  1. Commandments of B R Ambedkar
  2. Thus Spoke Ambedkar
