Based on these practices, economic policy in the modern times has evolved under the impact of the theory that man follows the pursuit of money.

It is in this context that a question arises:

What is the principle that Mahavira has given on this subject?
Did he reject desire?

Mahavira did not reject the existence of desires.
He said:

Ichha hu agasasamo anantaya - desire is endless like the sky.

He did not say that we have no needs?
He did not say we give up needs.

What he advised was to control and moderate the needs.
Control desires, restrain and limit needs.
