Hindu Economic Forum (HEF) is a platform that brings together various elements of Hindu Society such as Industrialists, Businesses, Traders, Bankers, Investors, Technocrats, Professionals, Economists, Academicians and Thought Leaders in self-organizing groups to enable their rapid growth and success.
Each group can share their knowledge, experience, expertise and resources with other members for mutual benefit. In addition, HEF encourages members to support and mentor budding Hindu entrepreneurs. The goal is to make all sections of society to prosper.
HEF believes that today Hindu Economic power has the potential to re-emerge as a leading economic system. For this, Hindu Society needs to participate in economic opportunities through collaboration and cooperation.
Our ancestors expressed their wisdom in the Vedas “Sat Hasta Samahara, Sahastra Hasta Sankira”, which means “Create Wealth with Hundred Hands and Share with Thousand Hands”. Inspired by this wisdom, they created a just and harmonious society which generated knowledge and prosperity. Hindus created and contributed 33% of the world economy from the 1st to 17th century, creating equitable prosperity for all. With a young population, it is an opportune time to recreate Hindu prosperity.
Hindus had an intertwined, self-organized social system that permitted unrestricted growth of knowledge, development and wealth. This model stands valid even today as self-organized communities have grown faster and with greater resilience as compared to communities where collaboration and co-operation were hindered. Jews rebuilt themselves in the 20th century, even after enduring the Holocaust, through networking, community support and organisation. Today, the Jewish community is an economic superpower of the world. Likewise, Japan and Germany, after the devastation of the Second World War, and global Chinese community in recent years, have all emerged as economic powers through self-organization.
Self-organization has always been a key catalyst in the resurgence of communities and countries. HEF aims to provide a framework for ‘local to global’ connectivity for resources, opportunities, partnerships and know-how. This will enable Hindus to rapidly contribute to 16% of the world GDP which is commensurate to their proportion of the global population. When we achieve such economic strength, we will be able to fulfil the needs of our population and also acquire respect in the global community.
