Aradhna Aggarwal publishes paper on 'Productivity Dynamics and Rural Industrialization in India' in Journal of Interdisciplinary Economics




This study provides evidence that since the late 1990s, industrialization in India has been driven by the rural organized manufacturing sector, using various indicators. The study explores  the dynamics of productivity growth in rural areas using  productivity decomposition methodologies. The results show that both labour and total factor productivity of the organized manufacturing sector in rural areas increased during the reference period and that the aggregate productivity growth is supported by the productivity growth of the incumbent firms (i.e. the adoption of new production technologies and organizational changes),  and the entry of new firms that are more productive than exiting firms. 10.1177/0260107919875585
