Industrial Development and Efficiency in Pakistan: A Revisionist Overview (Industrial Growth) (Report) Pakistan Development Review read online review & book description:

INTRODUCTION Pakistan was widely hailed as a "model" of economic, especially industrial, development during the 1960s--see, for example, Papanek (1967). At the same time, the experience of Pakistan has been an important part of the basis of the seminal critiques of import-substituting industrialization by Little, Scitovsky and Scott (LSS) in (1970) and by Balassa et al. (1971). Pakistan was one of each of the sample of seven countries examined by LSS (1970) and by Balassa et al. (1971), respectively. Indeed, within those samples, Pakistan was represented as an extreme case of the sins of import-substituting or "inward-looking" industrialization. This "outlier" in the small samples, hence bore a large part of the burden of the "proofs" of LSS (1970) and Balassa et al. (1971)
