Meditation for development?


This page in:

If meditation is scientifically proven to increase the IQ, should governments interested in promoting socio-economic well-being invest in meditation rather than biotechnology?

This is apparently the type of questions that arise when you start applying futures thinking to development.

Social economic well being needs to begin at the individual level. Change has to start at the fundamental level, that is at the individual level which will duly affect the society. The society as we all know is nothing but (we)people who make it. We need to imagine what benefits individuals can bring when their IQ and EQ are improved because of meditation:
Health Benefits - Reduced spending on health care needs. Lesser drug addicts, lesser stress related diseases, improved health
Mental and Physical well being - Happy family, happy society
