The economy of the Mughal Empire, c. 1595: a statistical study

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1987 - Business & Economics - 442 pages
Can the structure of the 15th-century Indian economy be analyzed on a quantified basis, as can a contemporary economy? Taking advantage of the immense amount of statistical material in the Ain-i Akbari, the great official compilation of the Mughal empire, this book revises the widely held views on a number of economic conditions of the day, and weighs general impressions against a rigorous analysis of properly quantified data.
