Mercantile Bombay: A Journey of Trade, Finance and Enterprise (The Gateway House Guide to India in the 2020s) Sifra Lentin
This volume reclaims Mumbai’s legacy as a global financial centre of the 19th to the first half of the 20th century. It shows how Mumbai, or erstwhile Bombay, once served as a central node in global networks of trade, finance, commercial institutions, and most importantly trading communities. In doing so it highlights that this city more than any other Indian city still possesses all these virtuous elements making it an appropriate location for a financial Special Economic Zone – an idea shelved temporarily. The book explores how the city flourished in its heyday as a trading, financial, commercial, and manufacturing hub in a globalised colonial world. While the city’s importance as a nodal financial hub in the global economy ebbed post India’s Independence and the Second World War, the multi-cultural city found renewed importance following the forex crisis of 199 Institutions (the RBI, SEBI, State Bank of India headquarters), capacities, experiences, communities, and talent centred in Mumbai revived its position, while managing the transition to a more open economy. Though Mumbai is not yet an international financial centre (Financial SEZ) like London, New York, Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, this volume explores why it has all the essential elements to become one today, and looks at the city as a trading city, a global financial centre, and a city of enterprise. An introspective read on India’s financial capital, this volume will be essential for scholars and researcher of economics, business studies and commerce. It will be of great interest to policy makers, city-headquartered business houses, financial institutions, and its people. Categories:
