We welcome users to visit this economic-historical website about the corporate world of business in colonial Indonesia. The website gives access to a unique data base with information on colonial business enterprises at eight selected points in time during the period 1910-1940.
The data base can be approached in two ways, either as an encyclopedia with data on individual enterprises individually or as a composite spreadsheet containing all statistical information. The user can trace each individual firm over time and examine the development of investment and profitability. In addition, users will get an impression of the enormous variation within corporate business in the colony with respect to for instance the type of activity or location.
