Linkages and Imbalances

  • A. S. Bhalla

Abstract

In Chapter 2 we examined Hirschman’s concept of imbalances and high-linkage industrial growth without providing its empirical analogue. The main purpose of this chapter is to provide a measurement of these linkages. Both backward and forward output and employment linkages are estimated for China and India using input-output (I/O) tables (for China the latest table available is for 19811 and for India it is for 1984–5).2 A comparison is also made with the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh and Turkey.
