Decentralized production in India: industrial districts, flexible specialization, and employment
French Institute of Pondicherry, Nov 24, 1998 - Business & Economics - 412 pages
This book constitutes a significant contribution to the debate on industrial development and the role of small firms in India, in the context of economic liberalization and rapid technological change. Situated in the wider international debate on flexible specialization, this collection of studies by sociologists, economists and social anthropologists suggests how clusters of small, technically and economically independent firms can provide jobs and help achieve economic growth.
