My latest article in Yojana Magazine!

Here is my latest article (with my friend Saravanan) on 'Growth Trends in Service Sector in India' which has been published in the Yojana (Planning) magazine in the September Issue, 2011.

"Yojana is a monthly devoted to socio-economic issues and started its publication in 1957 with Mr. Khuswant Singh as its Chief Editor. The magazine is now published in 13 languages viz. English, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Assamese, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Oriya."

Here is gist of the article. It has interesting analysis covering last sixty years growth trends of service sector. It also looks at the sub-sectors growth within service sector of India. One of the key findings is that Indian economy has moved (income wise) directly from agriculture to services sector rather then the usual textbook method or the way the developed world experienced like agricultural to industry (or manufacturing) and then to services oriented economy. This is something that many people take no notice or ignores without understanding the structural changes that has taken place.
