Economic Development Of A Nation! - Poem by Ramesh T A

Can economic development of a nation be based on
Mere economic statistics only that shows rate of
Growth and status of deficit every month of a year?

Can paper work and practical work go together ever
However hard monitoring is done to do so to make
Economic record look to be prospective by some means?

Economic development should ever go hand in had with
Social development of the people sure but never by
Paper manipulation to bring favourable result ever!

Depending on economist's skill reality cannot be ever
Changed to satisfy people and national development in
The real sense to rely on as prosperous or not sure!

Economic development of nation cannot be merely decided
On economic reports but only on people's happiness in life!

    Congratulations dear poet! You touched a very good point, true! Maybe we can observe how the more developed, more advanced the economy of a nation is, the less happy many of its people seems to be. (Report) Reply

    Very thoughtful poem Rameshji. Mere economic development manipulated for suitable numbers can not be the sign of satisfactory social life. Congratulations for a great poem. (Report) Reply

    I couldn't agree more Ramesh. Here in the U.S. the Nobel Prize in economics was awarded to Richard Thaler, whose work pays more attention to and account for human behavior and social costs. You've taken this idea one step further. Congrats on poem of the day. (Report) Reply

    The growth of a nation can't simply bank on mere manipulation of statistical data, it has to deal with reality at the grass root level.
    A very timely concept well developed through this poem Sir.
    Thanks for the sharing.

    An excellent write- - - Economic Statistics are the parameters that define the growth of a society.Statistics are taken in understanding the growth and development and to plan for future course of action.But many times a statistic is manipulated to show enhanced growth for getting a political mileage by party in power.Yes, mere statistics can never make a difference unless it is used for taking developmental measures based on its findings.

    Superficially, everything is manipulation, chance and accident and especially now a days when intellectuals like economists are supposed to be non-biased are in connivance with corrupt politicians and governments manipulating everything to make innocent citizens believe non-facts of existence/ hypothesis just to gain political mileage.........thanks for sharing and expressing candidly..........full credit (Report) Reply
