Over the last 15 years, intense work has gone into studying Auroville’s economy over its first four decades, of which the result is a comprehensive book of 360 pages.
Economics for People and Earth
The Auroville Case 1968-2008
by Henk Thomas and Manuel Thomas
published by Auroville Social Research Centre.
From Auroville’s side, Harini Sampathkumar has been part of the research team since 2006, joined by Guy Ryckaert since mid-2012.
This research publication on Auroville’s economy investigates:

  • Auroville’s economic principles as envisaged by the Mother
  • Auroville’s economic history over the first forty years 
  • Issues of work and maintenance for Aurovilians
  • Work and employment opportunities for neighbouring villages
  • Auroville’s economic activities through 17 case interviews
  • Performance of Auroville’s commercial and services sectors
  • Central Fund and its “carrying capacity”
  • Auroville’s sustainability as a model for durable socio-economic development.

The official launching ceremony was attended by a large audience of Aurovilians and guests and included a lively discussion on the contents of the book.

For information on the book and some background on Auroville as reported in Wikipedia and media from all parts of the world, as well as details of distribution of printed books and E-books, do visit www.yikke.com/p/7p
