Strategies for Achieving Sustained High Economic Growth identifies the factors influencing countrywide economic growth and development by analysing the economic strategies and experiences of various Indian states. It employs a very broad range of analytical techniques to understand the growth patterns and inter-linkages among the sectors and economies of the states.

The empirical studies of Indian state economies have largely ignored the inter-dependence of agriculture and industry sectors. The authors explore how this inter-relationship translates into the growth stimulus between the two sectors. The analysis looks at the growth experiences of the states with respect to convergence of their growth rates, spill-over effects of growth of one state on the others, and the impact of macroeconomic policies at the state level. The book also provides insights into factors that can lead to higher and more even growth performance by the Indian states so that the disparity becomes minimal.

This book will be a helpful reference for scholars and students of economics and policy studies and political economics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The merit of this book is the use of various methods of econometrics to measure convergence of per capita income, inter-sectoral linkage between agriculture and manufacturing, efficiency of agricultural productivity, etc. Readers can easily learn which method is appropriate to analyze various phenomena. This book can be recommended for all scholars who have an interest in regional disparity across states in India.

-- South Asia Economic Journal

The book studies the patterns of economic growth, investment flows, agriculture-industry nexus and income and convergence. The inter-linkages of the sectors and regions and the opportunities they create for raising the level of economic activities further are analysed in this book.

-- The Organiser

[The book] is quite heavily oriented towards an analysis of the agricultural sector.... The volume is a useful addition to the literature on analysis of inter-state variations...offers several valuable insights on the subject of overall growth and agricultural performance.
