Industrial structure, appropriate technology and economic growth in less developed countries (English) Abstract. The authors develop an endogenous growth model that combines structural change with repeated product improvement. Industrial Development, the Division for Sustainable Development, which acts as Secretariat to the Commission, is publishing this book, which high-lights key challenges for developing countries, across different regions and sec-tors, and how effectively and with what sorts of policies different countries have responded to them.

N ational industrial policy is a rubric for a broad range of proposed economic reforms that emerged as a unified political program in the early eighties. Had they been passed, these reforms would have given government officials additional authority, as well as the necessary fiscal and regulatory powers, to directly alter the country's industrial structure. Although observers of the Pakistani economy are well aware that a small number of family groups, popularly called "the twenty-two families," dominates the industrial structure of the country, the actual effects of this concentration of economic power on income distribution and on other areas of widespread social and political concern arc less well understood.
