Abstract: We use a state-level panel data set for the period 1969-2005 to analyze the relative importance of profitability (rate of profit) and industrial disputes (man-days lost to all industrial disputes per worker) in explaining cross-state variations of manufacturing sector performance in India. Using three different measures of manufacturing performance – net value added, investment and employment – we find that profitability is more significant than industrial disputes in explaining the variation of manufacturing sector performance across Indian states. Classification-JEL: B50, C26, O10
