7th NATIONAL CONFERENCE
‘REPOSITIONING INDIAN ECONOMY LEAPFROGGING ON GLOBAL STAGE’
(Under Quality Improvement Programme of Savitribai Phule Pune University)
26th& 27th February 2016, Friday-Saturday
INDIA’S services revolution has dazzled businesses in the developed world, turning Indian companies into global competitors and backwater cities such as Hyderabad into affluent, sophisticated technology centers. Yet economists have been less star-struck, clinging to the received wisdom that has prevailed since the industrial revolution: modernization runs from agriculture through manufacturing and only later to services.
The logic supporting the conventional path towards an advanced economy is straightforward. Development typically involves moving workers from low-productivity activities such as subsistence farming to high-productivity sectors. That points to a shift into manufacturing because it lends itself to specialization and economies of scale, both essential for rising output per worker.
India has a number of revolutions to launch simultaneously if it is to not just catch up but leapfrog on the global stage. These include an agricultural revolution, and industrial revolution and an information revolution, namely all three of Alvin Toffler’s “Waves” that underpin the change of civilizations. In order to facilitate the industrial revolution that will take to the next level employment, economic growth and maintain stability, the government will need to solve some very basic impediments. These include reforms in key areas such as labor laws, land acquisition, taxation and foreign investment. Further, and perhaps more importantly, the government will need to embark on one or better yet several Big Ideas that will help shape the course of its long-term development and differentiate its markets and industries from that of other countries.
