An Empirical Growth Model for India: 1954-1994
The aim of this paper is to investigate the determinants of economic growth in India for 1954-1994. We include indicators of both financial and trade policies as determinants of real per capita income. We emphasise the complementarity of these policies and assess their joint impact. Investment in physical capital and human capital are also considered and in addition, the impact of both oil shock and droughts during 1973-75 and 1979-82 is examined. Our analysis of time series data suggests that liberalisation of finance and trade and the development of Human Capital have had a positive and statistically significant impact. Our results also suggest that the second oil price shock and droughts from 1979-82 were more disruptive than the earlier episode of 1973-75.
