Hi: Are you sure arthshastra(kautilya's) and economics are related? I think kautilya wrote a book about politics.. I dont know if one line about the book arthshastra is appropriate for the topic of economics. But I might be wrong here... -- Spundun 06:06, 24 Jul 2004 (UTC) The page related to the arthashastra written by kautilya has been moven to अर्थशास्त्र ग्रन्थ. current page अर्थशास्त्र is about economics.
