About this Event

Hooshmand Badee is an academic economist with a Doctoral degree from the University of Leeds and York Saint John University in the UK. His Doctoral research title is "The Bahá’í teachings on economics and their implications for the Bahá’í community and the wider society."

Hooshmand has published four books including The True Foundation of All Economics; The Spiritual Solution to

Economic Problems; the Principles of Spiritual Economics; and Economics and the Bahá’í Faith. These books are compilations from the Writings of the Bahá’í Faith on economics and related subjects, and explanations of some of the direct and indirect teachings of the Bahá’í Faith on economics. He has delivered talks and presented papers on economics and related subjects in numerous international academic conferences. His idea of ‘Bahá’í Inspired Model of Economic Sustainability’ has become attractive to the academia.

Hooshmand has worked as a lecturer of economics for more than 25 years in several universities including the University of the West Indies, the Metropolitan University of Leeds and the University of Hull in England. He was one of the founders of Carmel High School, a Bahá’í inspired school in St. Vincent and the Grenadines where he served as its principal for five years. He is currently a faculty member at the Wilmette Institute and an academic member of the Baha’i Institute for Higher Education (BIHE) in Iran.

He served as a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Bangladesh where he lived for 9 years, and as a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís St. Vincent and the Grenadine for 10 years. Inspired by the message of the Universal House of Justice in 1983, he got involved in Bahá’í social and economic development projects in Bangladesh as well as later on in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the West Indies with the aim of putting the grassroots population at the center of economic activities.
