His original contribution to the field of economics can be found in the three theories that he coins in his book"The Great Indian Dream".They are the theory of'Survival of the Weakest','The Trickle-up Theory'&'The Law of Increasing Marginal Utility'.His concept of an ideal economy is what he calls'Happy Capitalism'in his book.
7.Professor Arindam Chaudhuri's competitive edge:- 
Professor Chaudhuri's outstanding ability is his strength to integrate macro and micro economic concepts with both strategic management techniques as well as personnel management techniques employed in organizations.At a macro level,his thoughts focus on the growing degeneration of the American socio-economic setup,the dangers of mindless imitation of the free market system and the innate strength of the Indian society. He does not agree with economists who have blind faith in the market system and feels the market needs to be constantly monitored and it is dangerous and harmful to allow the market to rule the human race,thus,he says'the market system is a wonderful slave but a dangerous master'.His original research work is an attempt to explain how the levels of satisfaction and happiness in any country depends upon the kinds of economic systems prevalent there.In his new book"The Great Indian Dream"he clearly explains that "survival of the fittest"is an animalistic term and vouches for"Survival of the Weakest"as the guiding force for the next millennium and calls it a human way of living. He strongly condemns the attempts wherein some countries are trying to become the neo Zamindars(a term used for typical Indian fuedal landlords)of todays world in the name of making this world a global village.He feels developing countries worldwide as well as India can only adopt these principles once their internal industries become globally competitive.He doesn't believe in the current way of functioning of the Indian government and feels the whole style of functioning seems to be following the principle of privatization of all profits and nationalization of all losses.He strongly believes that a double digit growth rate is not a dream for Indians provided that the right policies are implemented with honesty.This he feels can be achieved by following policies of trickle-up rather than trickle-down,like in the case of China.
