In HUMANISM, Rao Chalasani examines the inescapable link between holistic thought and macroeconomics, politics, cumulative knowledge, inclusion, and the individual pursuit of happiness. He contends that in the new century, neither capitalism nor socialism can adjust to fast-changing economic and political conditions or deliver growth to developed or developing countries. Difficult cultural adjustments are heightened by terrorism, nonlinear technological advances, and the unnerving fight between losers and winners in a globalized economy. Without feeding on doomsday scenarios, his model of humanism is a natural unifier of the most positive attributes of capitalism and socialism—a culturally compatible economic and political system built on nine variables and three catalysts that deliver measurable outputs: a sustainable GDP, a balanced environment, and a high wellness index.

“Rao Chalasani provides a critical analysis of the failure of both communism and capitalism, and offers an alternative, humanism, with the starting point of bias-free economics. His proposition is complex, tantalizing, and intriguing.” —Krishna K. Tummala, PhD, professor emeritus in public administration, Kansas State University

“. . . an original and instructive work that offers impressive and creative insights for developing a humane world.” —Lorraine S. Roth, MD, department editor, Current Psychiatry Journal; reviewer, Federal Practitioner

“A must-read for policy makers.” —Raymond Holter, former CIO, NSA

“If ever there was a compelling case for humanism as the way forward for humanity, Rao Chalasani’s life-work, woven into this cogent roadmap, is it. A thought-provoking read.” —Raju Narisetti, founder of Mint; former managing editor The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post
