3rd International Dialogue on Economics of Non-Violence: "Alternative Economics"

Jaipur Declaration

November 14, 2008

The Third International Dialogue on Economics of Non-violence was held at Jaipur (India) on November 13 and 14, 2008. It deliberated on the global existence of unending disparities (economic, regional, social etc.), inspite of policies, economic programmes and growing concerns for reduction in poverty accompanied with violence, erosion in human, moral and spiritual values.

Delhi (2005) and Udaipur (2007) declarations, which preceded this conference need reconsideration/reaffirmation based on the current dialogue and hence this declaration by the participants (both physical and conceptual) and interested activists. Blueprint for action plan and roadmap for practical implementation has to be drawn up by the concerned activists, thinkers and all stakeholders through interaction, progressive experience and local characteristics and parameters, keeping, the ideal of making economics more 'humane'.

  1. At the root for surging anomalies and disparities is unending desire and greed, which erodes ethical approach and moral values. Accumulation by a few obstructs equitable distribution and fruits of growth in the society. Poverty is though basically economic, but it encompasses human capital in terms of education, health, etc. and the solution lies in making its proper use.

  2. A sea change in economic concepts is warranted to make a shift from 'profit/wealth' to 'human welfare'. Growth is essential, but not at the cost of social and environmental degradation and without causing conflicts (regional, economic and social).

  3. The age-old basic concept of 'Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam' (Universal Brotherhood) should precede 'I', 'Me' and 'My'. As a first shep, it requires concern, compassion and care for all human beings.

  4. Principles of morality, ethics and righteousness do impact the human behaviour and thinking. 'Human Values' should be an essential part of education, training modules and spiritual discourses.

  5. Basic tenets of 'Aparigraha' (non-accumulation), 'Anekant' (respecting the views of others), 'Ahimsa' (Non-violence) and 'Anuvratas' are the building blocks for the economics of non-violence.

  6. Development should focus on, meeting the basic minimum human needs and 'quality' (not the standard) of life.

  7. Quest for a new economic order should focus on 'Relative Economics' specific to region, mankind and character so that gaps and differences of all kinds are eliminated in due course.

  8. Action plan for implementation has to begin with 'self', progressively including family, and society. Every human-being is a stakeholder in this march.

  9. A formal research centre needs to be established to chart out action plan, demarcate responsibilities for implementation, overseeing the march and mid-term course correction. Definite time-frame can be laid down only after concrete action plan becomes operative.
