The Forum of Free Enterprise was a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A.D Shroff and was established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum published booklets to further its objects. The following booklet titled, “Indian planning and the common man,” was published in 1962 and was authored by B.R. Shenoy. The author first illustrated his viewpoints in the article titled, “What should be the objective of planning?” He emphasized the desolate prospects of the third plan on overcoming poverty and unemployment. He construed that the State’s objective needs to be restorative on aspects of industry growth and free enterprises, by flattening any economic barriers and restrictions. Mr. Shenoy focused on the contributive factors the State needs to work towards. In the next article titled, “Planning and social justice,” the author put forth an emphasis on the concept of social justice through an economic perspective, something which was considered objective in India’s planning. He further brought focus on the activities under the investment sector being dominated by the State and averse to the needs of consumers. He accentuated for better policies in alliance with economic freedom. The third article titled, “Planning and Inflation,” shed light on the futile attempts to invest non-existent resources that do not procure any values, which led to the rise in prices back then. The author hoped for a policy reversal from the road of undeserving gains and financial instability. The author lastly highlighted many books for further studying the basic conceptual aspects of running a country effectively.
