The following booklet titled “Equity in a Global Society” was published on January-February 17, 1996, and was authored by Dr. I.G. Patel. The author in this booklet argues in favor of value-directed social science. He explains that there is no such thing as “The Society” but different societies with distinct social senses characterized by values, culture, tradition, etc. In light of this, he mentions that while there is no such convergence that binds together different societies, there should be a constant endeavor to bring maximum convergence in the interest of peaceful coexistence. Further, he explains the importance of values, standards, reason, and tradition in any society. Coming to equity, the author equates the term with balance and states that in a community, we always have to strike a balance between different, often conflicting things, traditions, values, considerations, and indeed interests. He elaborates on the various kinds of balance necessary for a peaceful society and then transcends to the growing trend of “The Global Society.” Concerning this trend, the author highlights that while extreme significance has been given to global economic integration, global consciousness or ethos has missed the bull’s eye. He further amplifies the status and role of equity in a global society. Finally, explaining the relationship between economics and equity, the author urges that social scientists pay greater attention to social equity in the global community.
