August 1980Microeconomic Aspects of Productivity Growth under Import Substitution: Turkey
with Anne O. Krueger: w0532
This paper assesses the empirical relevance of "dynamic" factors in industrialization in developing countries. Using data from a sample of 91 firms, rates of growth of output per unit of input are calculated. It is shown that there is little basis, at least with regard to Turkish experience, to the notion that non-traditional industries are in some sense more "dynamic" than traditional industries.
