About The Book

This book having 12 papers deals with structural analysis issues, covering and/or contrasting the pre and post-reforms periods of India or of a State. Issues relate to structural changes, key sectors, maximum possible balanced growth, human capital productivity, net resources saving, factor contents of foreign trade, poverty alleviation analysis with a multiplier decomposition method, construction of Input Output (I-O) Tables (2003-04), technical progress measurement and use of Generalised Inverse to regionalize National Input Output Tables and a development strategy.

All papers have common, uniform and useful premises of inter-industry Economics Frameworks. The relevance and need for this specific and important feature is also spelt in Preface, and is a rare event to re-establish the bridge between I-O Research Economics and Policy-making Professions and to revive interest in the rapidly growing subject of I-O Economics, as spelt out in Foreword. Hence it is a must book for all readers and learners of additional knowledge.
