Economic Development
An economy is a system in which productive units use limited resources to produce a variety of marketable products. Economic growth is defined as process in, which the real national output of a country increases over a period of time
Economic growth is the increase in the amount of the Goods and services produced by an economy over time

Economic development implies progressive changes in the socio-economic structure of the country.
(The level of economic growth, level of education, level of health service, degree of modernization, status of women, level of nutrition, quality of infrastructure, distribution of goods & Services and access to communication)

Economic growth can be shown graphically by shifting the production possibilities curve outward.

Distance of shift represents an increase in productive capacity

IBE-Module 3

How Do We Define Economic Growth?


Observation

India has a real GDP more than fifteen times as large as that of Denmark.
Indias population is about 200 times greater than that of Denmark. India is relatively poor and Denmark is relatively rich. Economic Growth Increase in per capita real GDP measured by its rate of change per year.

What Does Gross Domestic Product - GDP Mean?


The monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country's borders in a specific time period, though GDP is usually calculated on an annual basis. It includes all of private and public consumption, government outlays, investments and exports less imports that occur within a defined territory. GDP = C + G + I + NX where: "C" is equal to all private consumption, or consumer spending, in a nation's economy "G" is the sum of government spending "I" is the sum of all the country's businesses spending on capital "NX" is the nation's total net exports, calculated as total exports minus total imports. (NX = Exports - Imports)

Economic Growth

Features of Indian Economy


Indian Economy is developing economy and primarily an agriculture economy as more than 60% of the population is engaged in agriculture and allied activities. Indian economy is evolved as mixed economy economy in the sense that both private sector and public sector coexist and participate in the production process. There has been remarkable improvement in social sectors such as education, health, housing, water supply, civic amenities etc. The economy has low per capita income and low capital accumulation. Although two-thirds of the Indian workforce still earn their livelihood directly or indirectly through agriculture, services are a growing sector and are playing an increasingly important role of India's economy.

IBE-Module 3

Cont.
India is a major exporter of highly-skilled workers in software and financial services, and software engineering It is characterized by high population density and population growth. About one-third of the population live below poverty line. There is high level of unemployment rate and illiteracy rate The level of technology used in production process is low in many sectors. Modern technology has not been adopted in all sectors of the economy. There is a shortage of physical and economic infrastructure, transportation (Roads, railways, airlines), power (electricity, gas), and communication (telephone, Internet) have not reached all parts of the country. Even some parts of the country do not have provisions for schools, colleges, hospitals, and safe drinking-water supply

Major issues of development India as a developing economy


1. Low per capita Income: Per capita income in the country rose to over Rs 53,331 in 2010-11 from Rs 18,450 in 2001-02 United States Per Capita Income in the year 2011 is $41,663 - High Per Capita Income Per capita income is estimated to have risen 16.9% to Rs 53,331 compared to Rs 46,117 in the previous year. annual average growth rate An economy where the per capita real income is less than $1000 a year is considered an under-developed economy. Per capita Income = National Income / Total Population
IBE-Module 3

2. Disparities in Income distribution


High degree of disparity in Income distribution. Income Disparity is more intensive in urban area as compared with rural area. Day to Day basis worker has remained more stable.

IBE-Module 3

3. Poverty Line In India


As per the findings of Tendulkar Committee on Poverty , Indias poverty rate is estimated at 37.2% of the total population. Indias poverty rate is expected to fall to 22% by 2015 from 51% in 1990, which forecast Indias poverty rate to drop to 24% by that year. The poverty rate is measured by assessing the number of people who live below $1.25 a day, a threshold set by the World Bank.

4. Low level of productive efficiency due to inadequate nutrition and Malnutrition The Level of mal nutrition was higher in the urban areas than in the rural areas. Malnutrition(Starvation) leads to death or disease that in turn reduces productivity Improving nutrition increases productivity and economic growth - World Health Organization (WHO) The National Sample Survey has estimated that about 56% of urban population & 49% of rural population suffer from inadequate nutrition (2,400 Calories/Day)

IBE-Module 3

5. Over population
India's population rises to 1.21 billion: Census of India 2011:
The population of India, at 1210.2 million, is almost equal to the combined population of U.S.A., Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh &Japan put together (1214.3 million)

Cont.

IBE-Module 3

6. Imbalance between Population size, Resources and Capital

Due to over population, available land and other resources are affected which creates the imbalance in the Indian Economy. With rising population, per capita availability of land and other such resources declines.

IBE-Module 3

7. Problem of Unemployment
The unemployment rate which had increased from 6.06% in 199394 to 7.31% in 19992000 and further to 8.28% in 200405, came down to 6.60% in 200910. (Twelfth Five Year Plan) The Indian unemployment rate in 2011 has also remained a cause of concern among the people. The latest reports indicate that the unemployment rate of the country is at 9.8% this year which is quite high.

8. Lack of Entrepreneurs
In the theory of growth, entrepreneurs plays a vital role in the economy. The society possess people who are gifted with entrepreneurial skills, it is bound to grow rapidly.

IBE-Module 3

9. Lack of capital
Savings are low in India due to low national income but high expenditure. The Gross domestic savings (% of GDP) in India was 31.26 in 2009 Capital accumulation is necessary to have economic growth.

IBE-Module 3

10. Lack of Industrialization


India lacks in large industrialization based on modern and advanced technology. Average growth of industrial sector was 8.5% in India The Growth Rate of the Industrial Sector finally came to 9.8% in 20062007 Indias Index of Industrial Production was 6.80 percent in the month of January 2012 on a year-on-year basis, as compared 7.52 percent growth in January 2011.

Cont.
Retail sector: Retail sector is expected to record healthy sales in 2010-11 and grow by 10.2 per cent in 2011-12. The sectors PAT margin is expected to expand over the next three years on account of a faster rise in income vis-a-vis expense. Health Services: The health services sectors sales are expected to grow by a healthy 25.6 per cent in 2010-11 and 19.8 percent in 2011-12 driven by a healthy rise in sales. Hotel: After falling in 2009-10, the hotel sectors sales are likely to grow in 2010-11 by 18.1 per cent due to both, higher occupancies and Average Room Rate (ARRs). Telecom: After rising by just 2.2 per cent during 2009-10, sales growth of the telecom industry witnessed a recovery and improved during the first half of 2010-11. This recovery in sales growth is expected to continue. During 2010-11 and 2011-12, sales are expected to rise by 11.4 per cent and 14.6 per cent respectively driven by an increase in the subscriber base and a deceleration in the fall of both, average revenue per user (ARPU) and the minutes of usage per user (MOU). Software: The Indian software industry is mainly export-oriented. The industry garners around 60-70 per cent of the total revenue from its two largest markets, namely the US and Europe. The economic slowdown in these major export destinations led to a deceleration in growth of sales of the Indian software industry to 5.9 per cent. However, sales are expected to grow at 16.9 per cent and 17.8 per cent, respectively during 2010-11 and 2011-12 due to higher client additions and an uptick in billing rates.

Business Cycle
A Business cycle can be defined as wave like fluctuations of business activity characterized by recurring phases of expansion and contraction in periods varying from three to four years. Business Cycle are a types of fluctuations found in the economic activity of the nations that organizes their work mainly in business enterprises. A cycle consist of expansion and contractions. The business cycle is the periodic but irregular up-anddown movements in economic activity, measured by fluctuations in Real GDP and other macroeconomic variables.

IBE-Module 3

Recession Phase
The Symptoms of recessions are:
Scarcity of labor, raw materials which increases the cost relative to prices. Rise in the rate of interest Failure of consumption due to rising prices

Recession are the result of reduction in the demand of products in the Global market.

Recession In US 2008- Impact on India


The United States entered 2008 during a housing market correction, a subprime mortgage crisis and a declining dollar value Major banks have landed in trouble after people could not pay back loans Sub-prime is a high risk debt offered to people with poor credit worthiness or unstable incomes. Result -Over consumption/ Extravagant spending by the consumer and thus for years the prices of homes in the U.S. kept rising. Since then 1. Loans became difficult to come by banks 2. Bank cut Credit card limits. Thus, U.S. consumer significantly reduce spending.
IBE-Module 3

Cont.
Reduced spending meant - reduced activity for most businesses and consumers. Businesses started to layoff workers (firing people as there was no work). Because of layoff, Unemployment started to rise (10.9%) which resulted in further reduction in spending by consumer. Dollar value Declined and Stock market crashed. All this slowed down the growth of economy. GDP growth rate fell to 2%. All this put together has driven the U.S. economy in recession.
IBE-Module 3

Impact of Global Recession On India


As a result India's export growth as turned negative and fall sharply. The sensex crashed by nearly 13% in the two trading seasons of January. The central bank rate of interest drastically increase 11.5% to 16%. The net profit of major player real estate decline as compare to pervious financial year. The textile, garment, and handicraft industry loose 4 million jobs by April 2009. The recession had no much impact on the Agricultural sector. The rupees has positive impact on import but have negative impact on export and FDIs.

Depression / Trough
In this phase, there is sharp deduction of production, mass unemployment, falling prices, falling profits, low wages, high rate of business failures The fall in the purchasing power is fundamental background of the fall in prices There will be no hopes for the entrepreneurs to start up, investors to invest in stocks.

IBE-Module 3

Recovery
It implies increase in the business activity after the depression phase The industrial production picks up slowly and gradually. In this phase,
Slow rise in prices Small rise in profits Wages also rise New investment New projects Banks relaxes the credits facilities. Purchasing power of the buyers Increases the productivity.

Characteristics/Features of Business Cycle


Recurring Fluctuations: Business cycle are Continuous: an expansion turns into a recession that is followed by a contraction and then a revival that in turn, begins the process all over Period of business cycle is longer than a year: 3 to 4 Years. Presence of alternative forces of expansion & contractions: Boom and Depression Phenomenon of the crisis: Expansion and Depression Synchronic: Affects all the Industry/sectors of an economy.
