The following booklet titled “Liberty To Trade Endangered” and authored by A.D. Shroff opines on the antipathy and hostility which the Free Enterprise sector has been subjected to negating its remarkable advancement in steel, hydroelectric and cotton industries to name a few which has firmly planted India on the industrial map of the world. While the author places outright objection to the idea of absolute ‘laissez-faire’, the tightening grasp of the State on economic liberty is a hindrance to the constitutional guarantee of free enterprise. The author further highlights the significant danger this poses where patronage systems burden individual free-will by imposing political loyalties, which has materialized in the form of the State Trading Corporation. The author comments on the nature of the State Trading Corporation as a ‘sinister attack on free enterprise’, which is depriving specialised traders from realising their potential. While the existence of black sheeps indulging in profiteering is undoubtable, this necessitates the obeying of laws rather than a takeover of the State. Other financial legislations enforcing compulsory deposits from industries are detrimental to economic progression, where the need of the hour is for economic liberty as propounded by the Forum of Free Enterprise.
