P. J Marshall expresses the economic significance of the 'East India Company' from 1765 to the 1850s therein he states, "After 1765 the revenues of Bengal alone amounted to about one-quarter of the public revenue of Britain as a whole in the 1830s to the 1850s, the £20 million to £25 million collected by the East India Company was about half the revenue of the domestic British state.
