    • Abstract:
      The article offers information on the history of the East India Company, before a threat to Asia's elites. Topics discussed include promoting English interests abroad, whether of a commercial or diplomatic nature; effort to establish an Asian-wide network of factories and shipping and a general economic downturn in Europe restricted liquidity that made borrowing more difficult; and Catholicism created expansive business partnerships with Indian and mestizo merchants.
