Abstract: Over the years, there has been a growing imbalance in the structure of the Indian economy. While the share of agriculture in the economy has dropped from around 66% fifty years ago, to about 15% today, the share of people dependent on this sector has still remained at around 60%. This is one indicator of poverty. I propose to look at the technological roots of this imbalance in this presentation.
