In 2007, I became too imaginative and extravagant when I saw a call for paper from the New School, New York, USA. The call was on behalf of the Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA) for the 2007 Annual Meeting of the Association. The call began with the famous mind-blowing statement of Keynes (The ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than is commonly understood. Indeed the world is ruled by little else.). I have been motivated accordingly to work on the income component of the Human Development Index with the ideas of sacrifice and altruism. My mind reached a state where there is no fear. Thanks to the statement of Keynes, I have developed a feeling that I may be right or wrong … but I have sufficient reasons to value what I am thinking. I wrote a paper: “Ability to sacrifice vs. propensity to absorb: a synthesis with the average and total principles in capability framework” and presented it in the above mentioned conference.
