Chapter 5: The India Office
Keynes’s first permanent employment was as a civil servant in the India Office, from 1906 until 1908, when he accepted a lectureship at Cambridge. This chapter describes his duties and his own work while he was there, the Indian currency question which prompted his first book, Indian Currency and Finance, and his appointment to the Royal Commission on Indian Finance and Currency in 1913.
