  1. Becker, CM; Mills, ES; Williamson, JG, IMPACT OF UNBALANCED PRODUCTIVITY ADVANCE ON INDIAN URBANIZATION: SOME PRELIMINARY FINDINGS., Modeling and Simulation, Proceedings of the Annual Pittsburgh Conference (December, 1984), pp. 187-194, ISBN 0876648308

    This paper investigates the impact of changes in sectoral productivity on output and employment patterns in a simulation model of the Indian economy. Productivity gains in major urban sectors are found to have fairly strong urban growth effects both in the short and long run. Rural productivity advances initially stem urban growth, but have little long run effect.
