Summary:
Prof Joan Ricart-Huguet of Loyola University Maryland in this article tries to answer the colonial question: What led colonial states to invest much more in some districts than others?

These areas, in turn, attracted the lion’s share of colonial public investments not only in infrastructure but also in health and education. Public investments were considerably lower in places further away from the centers of pre-colonial trade.
