“This world of ours is made up of good and bad. And the good and the bad things are done not so much by nature as by human beings. The good things that humans have the capacity for are friendliness, intimacy, love, sweet amiability – both internal and external – sitting together to eat and to talk, trying to feel the joys and sorrows of others, and so on. And among the bad things that humans do, the first and foremost is the exploitation of one human by another. This exploitation occurs sometimes in the religious sphere, sometimes in the social sphere, sometimes in the mental sphere and sometimes in the economic sphere.” – Shrii Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar (in “Socio-Economic Exploitation in Ráŕh”)

Dignified socio-economies both closed and open, Prout’s synthesis of protectionism, free trade, and the beginnings of integrated world society.
Socio-economic decentralization does not diminish or dissipate economic potential. Localization removes regional disparity because wealth is distributed almost equally everywhere.
Buy locally produced goods and get more for your money; the hidden costs of importing every-day items.

The propounder of Prout, Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar, offered a visionary analysis and practical solutions for the global water crisis. Sarkar’s ingenious methods of utilizing water are applied by Proutists and others around the world.
