Prutha Goa discusses the Goenchi Mati proposal

Iris C F Gomes from Prutha Goa discusses the idea behind the Goenchi Mati campaign: “The example Rahul uses to explain intergenerational equity is that the iron ore is like inherited gold which brings no income. This would prompt one to sell the gold and traditionally buy land for agriculture from which you could derive income. This is something that could be left to future generations, unlike a situation in which a car is purchased with the money obtained from the sale of gold. A car is not a viable legacy since it has limited durability. The concept of Communidade, where generation after generation benefits by way of crops from the land, is a perfect example of intergenerational equity.”
