The Forum of Free Enterprise is a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A. D. Shroff, and has been established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum publishes booklets to further its objects. The following booklet titled “Business and Public Welfare” was published on March 9, 1970. This booklet contains four select background papers from the Forum’s Convention on Business and Public Welfare. The first, titled ‘Business and Fundamental Rights’, was authored by V K Narasimhan and warns the nation of the dangers of nationalisation, and how such a power could become a gateway to further totalitarianism of the government. The second paper, titled ‘Business and Consumers’, was authored by Mrs. Krishna Basrur and addresses the issue of ethics in business and the problem of adulteration and widespread consumer mistrust. The third paper, titled ‘Business and Government in India’, was authored by C G Vaidya and examines the relation between government and businesses in the context of the Indian mixed economy. The last paper, titled ‘Business and Public Image’, was authored by Dr. Ramu Pandit and it addresses the negative connotations that the general public associate with big businesses, and why it is important to change the status quo.
