Between the early tenth and the mid-thirteenth centuries, a boom occurred in the trade linking the seas of maritime Southeast Asia to the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea. The impact that this growth in trade had upon the Javanese domestic economy was profound. The expansion of the Chinese market, in particular, for the produce of Java and its archipelago trading network led to changes in Javanese agricultural practices, patterns of domestic marketing and regional trade, and the monetary and tax system. The resulting increase in wealth stimulated a Javanese consumption boom, and competition from commodities imported from China and India provoked innovations in domestic production.
