The better French performance in India has effects for the FEIC, mainly as Choiseul does not see the company as an expensive, unwanted endeavour, and does not abolish the company's monopoly on trade beyond the Cape of Good Hope. IOTL the average French trading fleet in the 50 year period after 1720 was of 11 ships, a number which has increased to around 17 by the 1770's ITTL and the most valuable asset of the company are still the precious metals and some textiles they can obtain from Chandernagore. The company had a bad time in the 1770's as a famine struck the Deccan in both timelines, but by that time it had already been abolished IOTL. When it was reopened it issued 40,000 shares of stock at a price of 1,000 livres each, so its value was around fourty million livres that, with the extra territory and influence held by France on the subcontinent, I'd say that the value of the FEIC would be around 70-90 million livres. That's surely a boon for French finances, but a good chunk of it is employed on building more trade and war ships, while the main economic malaises of France (most cities not paying the taille, the nobility barely having taxes such as the vingtieme etc.) persist, and with France in a better economic situation, the nobility is even less supportive of change.This looks very interesting to say the least, definitely worth a watch. I hope France's control of the Carnatic means their finances are in better shape than IOTL.
