Economic history of India
begins with theIndus Valley civilization.At this time, India had the first known cities.Ancient and medieval India exported textiles, steel and iron works to Europe, the Middle Eastand South East Asia in exchange for gold and silver.During the Maurya Empire, trade routes became more secure and the road system was expanded.Mughal India had one of the largest economies in the world at the time. It had a tax andadministrative system for the whole of India.India has followedsocialist-inspired policies for most of its independent history, which haveincluded extensive public ownership, regulation,red tape, andtrade barriers.
India slipped behind many other Asian countries.After the1991 economic crisis, the central government launched economic liberalization. India has turned towards a more capitalist system and has emerged as one of the fastest growing largeeconomies of the world.
