Kautilya's Arthashastra

The way of Financial management and economic Governance

"The book, written in a simple and readable style, focuses on how the principles contained in ‘Arthashastra’, written about 2400 years ago, can be applied to solve many of the world’s current economic problems affected by the serious meltdown.As a treatise on the practice of management, economics and public finance, and trade and commerce, 'Arthashastra' is perhaps the oldest and one of the most exhaustive treatises on governance, administration and economics

It is significant to note that India’s Finance Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee quoted from the 'Arthashastra' no less than three times during his budget speech this year".
