For those who know me personally already know I’ve graduated in Business Studies and Religious Studies. Most people questioned the value of such a combination, to which I replied ‘There is no bigger God than Money’ some people grasped what I was saying other just laughed. A lot has happened in the world and most of it has justified my reading on the two subjects at University.
I’ve read a lot from the commentators for Capitalism, Communism and any other ‘Ism’ that countries have used to run their Economies. I should say I’m not an Economist but It’s easy to see the impacts of each system and sadly not one of them is perfect. Immoral and Unethical actions have happened on all sides. As this blog’s title suggests this isn’t about the system it’s self it’s about the players and decision makers within the system.With safety I can say that Big Business and Hinduism are on a collision course, the practises and behaviour of some Big Businesses is Adharmic. Adharma refers to a state of the universe in imbalance or in an unwell and unnatural state. We live a pamperd and soft life in the first world or West. Not so long ago I had some time to reflect in Tanzania at the Selous National Park, I was sitting on a bench watching the sun set it turned this beautiful saffron I could feel it against my skin. To this day a once it's a life time sensation with so much at the disposal of this East African nation why has it not come forward, why have so few third world nations come forward?
