This pioneering book analyzes the evolution of Indian capitalists as a mature, politically conscious, all-India class, and simultaneously provides a comprehensive economic history of colonial India in the first half of the twentieth century. Aditya Mukherjee argues that the Indian capitalists evolved a sophisticated economic critique of colonialism, including such complex phenomena as the `unequal exchange’ that occurs in the trade between countries with different levels of productivity. Professor Mukherjee provides a detailed analysis of the economic debates of the time on issues concerning tariffs, trade, industry, monetary policy, foreign capital, planning and the public sector.
