Publication: Urbanization, Inequality and Economic Growth : Evidence from Indian States
The possible implications of the urbanization process on development outcomes is explored in an intra-country rather than in a traditional cross-country setting, using Indian states over the Post-Independence period and Indian towns over the 21st century as the units of analysis. The empirical analysis revolves focuses on three main issues: 1) the evolution of rural-urban disparities and its relation with income; 2) the relation between the speed of urbanization and income growth; and 3) the evolution of urban concentration.
