Six types of wealth
Wisdom for the New Millennium
His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
It helps to pay heed to the Indian guru who is avidly listened to all over the world. For instance, as the founder of the Art of Living (http://www.artofliving.org/), he was in Jaffna earlier this month “to heal the trauma of the victims of the ongoing ethnic conflict in the region”.
To people in the island nation he’d said: “I have come here to take away all your worries and problems. I want to see a smile that never fades on your face.” When touring the Far East last week, he offered help with organic farming to the Indonesian President; and in Hong Kong, a business and financial hub, his message was simple: “To cope with high stress levels, people have to find an inner strength.” At the time of writing this, he is running “a workshop designed for Los Angeles, ‘Leading Into the Light,’” in Loyola Marymount University, as http://www.argonautnewspaper.com/ reports.

Competition Law in India: Policy, Issues and developments
by T. Ramappa, Oxford University Press
Write-up in today's issue of Business Line: A place for competition.
The author reasons that the Government should go beyond “merely including professions within the definition of a ‘service’.”
Of instructive value is the discussion on the European Commission’s ‘Report on Competition in Professional Services,’ which is about ‘lawyers, notaries, accountants, architects, engineers, and pharmacists’.
The book devotes a chapter to ‘anti-competitive agreements’ where you can read about the Wouters case on multidisciplinary partnerships, the Goldfarb case on minimum fees, the Telco case on ‘restrictive trade practice’.
