Beyond Gandhian Economics: Towards a Creative Deconstruction aims at filling the knowledge gap existing in the ontology of Gandhian economics. The book in fact argues that Gandhi was not truly a neoclassical (traditional) economist. It reinterprets Gandhian economics as being constituted by some of his personal views on different topical questions related to a broader spectrum of issues encompassing moral philosophy, politics, and society.
The book establishes the fact that the economic issues discussed by Gandhi are inextricably conflated with political and social questions and go beyond the periphery of pure economics. These issues can be well-treated under the rubric of political economy hitherto neglected in Gandhian literature.
