|Title:||Industrialization of Economies with Low Manufacturing Base|
|Abstract:||The basic theme of the dissertation is placing structure of economies as an intermediate explanatory factor for attainment of sustained growth of low-income economies that are in transition from stagnant agricultural economy to modern economic growth. The dissertation sets out with conceptualization of a model applicable to structures of low income and under industrialized economies, and hypothesizes on the long term outcomes of these structures. Sustained growth is the result of a particular structure in which manufacturing growth drives economic growth. A structure where transaction services have expanded beyond certain levels stunts manufacturing. Empirical investigations were carried out to test the hypotheses on 35 countries that were low-income economies in 1970.The results provide support for centrality of manufacturing and for the retarding effect of non-optimal growth of transaction services on manufacturing growth.|
