The Missing Middle
The purpose of this paper is to provide evidence, and argue, that stunning as Indiaâ€™s success is, the potential â€“ and need â€“ is for still more reform and more rapid growth. 8 percent is a good rate of growth, but many are destined needlessly to be left behind for years to come if current trends persist: if growth in output and employment of unskilled-laborintensive manufacturing industries remains on its current trajectory, India is at risk of bifurcating the economy, with those benefiting from growth and those left out.
