Rate of Return in Engineering Industry

This paper attempts to develop a simple method of estimating the marginal productivity of capital from balance-sheet data. Three conclusions follow from the analysis:

Management Education-A Perspective for its Evaluation

A Perspective for its Evaluation S K Roy TOWARDS management development, the three major inputs are: management education and training, organisational research, and management consultancy. 1 In a given business and industry setting, each one of these inputs would have its characteristic strengths and weaknesses. In India we have been overly enthusiastic about the first and the most pedagogic of these inputs, viz, education and training. Neither our management institutions nor our business and industry have adequately em- phasised either research or consultancy as instruments for management development and organisational change. At the same time, given a limited resource allocation, we probably need to view these inputs now in definite means- and-ends relationships.

Data Gaps Facing Business Economists

/f practising economists in India were asked to rank the major hazards of their profession, "data gaps' would perhaps receive the highest score. The ease with which business economists in the more developed, countries ban lay their hands on useful environmental data certainly has enabled them to play an influential role in their organisations.... A strategy for improving the data system should undoubtedly receive the higher priority in India.

Regional Dispersion of Agricultural Income- Implications of the New Technology

(a) to bring together relevant data on the spatial distribution of agricultural income and to squeeze as much information as possible out of these data; and, (b) to attempt preliminary projections of agricultural income distribution among the States for five years hence, incorporating the effects of the new technology.

Labour and the Green Revolution- The Experience in Punjab

Mechanisation of agriculture elicits sharp reactions where employment is a major problem. Its cost- benefit for any region has therefore to be carefully considered.

Capitalist Farming in India

Ashok Rudra (Review of Agriculture, September 27, 1969) tells us that he is more interested in the 'Red Revolution' than in the 'Green Revolution', The colour of the revolution which I have seen in one area after another of India in the 1960s is steel-grey. I call it an industrial revolution.

India s Surplus Cattle-Some Empirical Results

India's 'Surplus' Cattle Some Empirical Results C H Hanumantha Rao K N Raj, who has questioned the widespread assumption about the existence of a large surplus of livestock in India, raises the question whether given the amount of food available for maintaining cattle, a higher output is to be had by giving this food to a smaller number and raising their productivity or by distributing it over a larger number. He suggests that a firm answer to this question cannot be offered without much deeper investigation into the relative production functions.

Big Farmers of Punjab-Second Instalment of Results

Second Instalment of Results Ashok Rudra This paper presents the second instalment of the results of a sample survey of large farms in Punjab carried out in the summer of 196869.

Agricultural Development in Maharashtra- Some Aspects

There is a marked relationship between agricultural incomes and availability of water in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. Ahmednagar being a dry area, the farmer has to depend on irrigation for assured water supply on which his ability to take to improved technology depends.

Productivity and Allocation of Resources between Rice and Jute in West Bengal

(i) examine the functional relationship between inputs of fertiliser, water, labour and plant protection devices and crop output; (ii) estimate the marginal products of each of these inputs in aman rice and jute in West Bengal; (iii) examine the elasticities of production with respect to different inputs and the returns to scale that prevail in production of these two crops; (iv) find out the optimum combination of the variable farm resources within aman rice and jute as well as between the two crops in order to maximise the total gross farm returns from these crops.
