Gandhiji and Ruskin s Unto This Last

Gandhiji and Ruskin's Unto This Last M L Dantwala The author here examines the influence of Ruskin's book Unto This Last on Gandhiji's views on the economic system he advocated, his theory of' Trusteeship, economic equality, relationship between the employers and the employees and the use of modern technology. While the author shares some of Ruskin's and Gandhiji's concern, he differs from both on the issue of use of technology for economic development, while commending the search for alternatives which could avoid its harmful effects. He shares Alvin Toffler's futuristic view about the possibility of a synthesis between the low stream traditional and high stream modern technologies.
