The Education Department, Government of Maharashtra (Mumbai) published the collection of Ambedkar's writings and speeches in different volumes. Apart from the Government of Maharashtra; the Ministry of Social justice also publishes books written by Dr. Ambedkar.

There are two most selling books of Ambedkar namely the “Problem of the rupee” and “The Annihilation of caste”.  These two books are based on the economy of India and the social structure of India respectively.

Extract of the Problem of Rupee;

The book analyses the problems faced by Indian currency during a period when local businesses and the British administration were at loggerheads, it had a tremendous effect on the Indian currency’s value.

Dr. Ambedkar argued that the British government kept the exchange rate too much(overvalued) so that they could sell their goods in India. Worth mentioning here that overvalued makes the import cheaper and export costlier.

The book argues for the stabilization of monetary affairs and exchange rates. It eventually led to the formation of the Reserve Bank of India in 1935.
