Economic Growth in India Revisited
Sushil Haldar ()
South Asia Economic Journal, 2009, vol. 10, issue 1, 105-126
This article tries to examine the relevance of the three distinct types of the growth models, namely, physical capital accumulation-led growth, export-led growth and Lucas-type human capital accumulation-led growth in India taking a long-time series data from 1950â€“51 to 2003â€“04. Employing the Johansen's cointegration and error correction model, we find that human capital investment plays a crucial role both in the long run as well as in the short run. The export-led growth hypothesis is partially valid whereas the physical capital investment-led growth appears to be insignificant in our findings.
