Despite differences in assumptions and methodology, there is a remarkable degree of consistency in the studies’ results. The stylized facts appear to be as follows: First, TFP has played an important role in pushing long-term growth in India. Second, there has been a significant increase in TFP and its contribution to growth in phase II. Indeed, international comparison of TFP contribution to growth done by Bosworth and Collins (2003) suggests that India scored very low during 1960–80 (at only 10 percent) compared with other countries.

How relevant is this to India’s case? A simple-minded approach to India’s experience would seem to validate that view. Growth and fiscal deficits were relatively low during phase I. Growth did pick up substantially in phase II along with large and rising fiscal deficits. Except for the short-term crisis in 1990/91, macroeconomic stability was also preserved. But this is too simplistic a view and does not stand up to careful scrutiny of the reality in India. As per theory, depending on how the deficits are financed, large fiscal deficits would tend to become unsustainable because (i) if deficits are financed by domestic borrowing, then they would tend to crowd out private investment by raising domestic interest rates; (ii) if deficits are financed by money creation, then this will feed on inflation; and (iii) if deficits are financed through external borrowings, they will contribute to balance of payments crisis.

Some significant initial efforts were made to reduce quantitative barriers after 1975 and continued through the first decade of phase II (Joshi and Little 1998; Panagriya 2005; Virmani 2005). But the main trade liberalization effort was made after the 1991 external crisis (Acharya 2006; World Bank 2004d). 3. During phase I, non-trade barriers (NTBs) were the main instrument of trade policy. Import controls with varying degrees of severity were used to regulate the balance of payments as well as to support the import substituting industrialization strategy.
