Capitalism, as a brain child of liberalism, is engrossed by lacunae on many sides, ideological, conceptual as well as practical. However, any alternative system to capitalism has neither proven to be more successful nor spotless.
Sustainability, as an issue, could have many socialist-communist solutions, but the complete replacement of the existing model shall happen at a huge social, economic, political, environmental, human, developmental and capital cost which no nation-state in the modern era is prepared and willing to incur.
Income inequality is one of the the most hazardous evils caused and nurtured by Capitalism and the resultant consumption-oriented economy. The poorest 10% population of the world earn not more than 7% of the global income, whereas the richest 10% own up to 40% of the global wealth.

India has remained the fastest growing economy in 2018 and is expected to grow above 7% throughout the year 2019. However, from an investment perspective, stock market participation of retail investors is very low. India has one of the longest histories of stock market dating back to the end of 18 th century when East India Company traded in loan securities. Asia's first stock exchange, the BSE was established in 1875. However, out of total population of 125 Crores, presently only 2.5 crore people are directly or indirectly involved with the stock market. Thus, as stated in an interview by CEO of BSE, Mr. Ashish Kumar Chauhan, merely 2% of the population is influenced by the stock market. An investigation into why hasn't the stock market reached the masses even in today's digital age reveals an observation that people tend to be risk averse. A personal interrogation of people excelling in their respective fields brings one to the conclusion that there is a lack of knowledge about the stock market in general and those who are even scarcely aware about the news, know only about the dark side of the market due to which they prefer staying away. This paper is an effort to throw light on certain scientific methods that can be used by a layman to simplify his investments. The said techniques if used carefully can not only minimise risk substantially but also provide a rate of return which is greater than any savings in FDs, Gold, real estate or any kind of SIPs as well.
