Parsi Seths as Entrepreneurs, 1750-1850

Amalendu Guha This paper traces the growth of the Parsi business community over a period of 100 years till 1850. The author suggests that in the favourable circumstances then prevailing, a modern shipbuilding industry should have been me natural outcome of Parsi enterprise but for the hostility of the then ruling power Which by discouraging the incipient shipbuilding and navigation industry halted and distorted a potential industrialisation process.

The problem, as considered by both views, is; "How do corporations manage their cash and why?" The paper is divided into three parts: the first part of the paper deals with the academic view of cash management; the second part presents cash management policies and practices of three large United States corporations; and the last part compares the academic with the practical approach "FOR the purpose of the present text, we shall broaden the concept somewhat by defining finance as that administrative area or set of administrative functions in an organisation which have to do with the management of the flow of cash so that the organisation will have the means to carry out its objective as satisfactorily as possible, and at the same time meet its obligations as they become due.''1 This quote shows the importance of cash management and, to an extent, the reason why this topic has been chosen as one worthy of expanded thought.
