My quest for understanding the behaviour of private investment in India resulted in my first book (1972a). In this book I challenged the Establishment assumption that the slow rate of India’s industrial growth during the period of British rule was due to the inherent weaknesses of India’s social structure, and colonialism only helped to break up that structure and propel India towards ‘modern economic growth’. I argued, on the contrary, that colonialism led to a low rate of accumulation within the country because much of the investible surplus was either exported as a tribute to the colonial power, or used up in rentier consumption, or aborted because of the low propensity to invest in an economy constricted by poverty, low productivity and sluggish demand for industrial goods.

After three-and-a-half years in Number Ten he was made a life peer and returned to the University of Oxford. The defeat of the Wilson government in June 1970 was a great disappointment to him.
