A warm welcome. I am Vishal Ganeriwal.
I am passionate about the idea of live life win-win. For me the principle of win-win means a life on Earth where all live in peace and harmony; where economic activities are based on principle of inclusive growth; where growth is leveraged through sustainable technology; where products and services deliver true value and not mere perceptions; a health system that is based on tenets of holistic healing and universal affordability; a culture based on simplicity of thought and expression; an education or learning system that shapes our value system and skills to enable us live life in a win-win way.
Does the above sound like a list of idealistic impractical assertions. Yes, they are if seen from an immediate "universally applicable" perspective. If we limit their application to the area that really matters ie doing the best possible in our own circle of influence, then they are very much practicable. With each part of the whole changing, there will come a time where the threshold number will be crossed and these principles will achieve universal acceptance and applicability. Have you heard of the 100th monkey experiment?
Win Win Economics 360 is a term I use to describe the economic principle of a win-win life.
A paradigm with which I associate following 5 high-level principles.
1. Inclusive and equitable growth that also promotes enterprise.
2. Dealing in True Value Quality products and services.
3. Use of sustainable and eco-friendly technology.
4. Taking pride in the 3 R's: Reduce, Re-use, Recycle
5. All or substantial part of the profits go towards supporting a worthy cause.
The term 360 reminds me of a circular dimension. The circular shape represents the idea of infinite expressions, connections, applications. It is a figure which is at the same time both rigid and flexible; static and dynamic; open and closed. So is this principle of Win-Win Economics 360.
Winwineconomics360 is an effort to create a thought and action forum. I hope more like minded will join in and make this seed idea grow. Those who agree with these principles can also try to try to put them into action, even if they are only small steps to begin with. This blog is a call to introspect, join hands and make a start.
