New Delhi: Politician and author, Manish Tewari launched ‘What Marx Left Unsaid’ – ‘Production of Skills by Means of Skills’ authored by Dr Malay Chaudhuri, Dr Arindam Chaudhuri and Che Kabir Chaudhuri recently at India International Centre, New Delhi.
The book is on a theory of economic justice that creates a forceful case for an exploitation-free world with a maximum wage ratio of the Highest paid to Lowest paid worker at 3:1. It is presented to commemorate the 200th and 100th birth anniversaries of Karl Marx and ILO respectively.
Manish Tewari said, “The need to bring in equality was a must but economic theories seem to be at loggerheads with religious and cultural ideologies forever. The world would definitely be a better place if the wage ratios came down to that.”
The book elaborates and illustrates why human beings must earn as per their skills, which in turn determines their ability to contribute in society. And skills, must be measured fairly. All that we need, to produce skills, are two things. First, the readiness to sacrifice unskilled labour and what any man is capable of giving. The second is a certain amount of skilled hours of a trainer.
The book is jointly written by three generations of authors from the same family. It has been published by Times Group Books.
Dr Malay Chaudhuri, the founder Director of IIPM spoke about the importance of equality and why no human deserves to be paid more than three times another human being in a fair world. Dr. Arindam Chaudhuri elaborated through a passionate speech on how when education becomes free for all, human beings won’t be able to command a higher price in the market than others because that essentially happens when we keep a majority of the people in the world uneducated and marginalized.
Che Kabir Chaudhuri, the young joint author of the book credited with the basic mathematical equations in the book was precise when he said the theory is an internal part of his existence.
Dr. J.K. Mitra, former Dean of FMS who was also present at the launch said that what Marx said is still being discovered and this book would only add to it.
