Abstract

Business Associations and the Small Manufacturing Sector in India ROBERT W. HUNT Illinois State University, Bloomington-Normal, U.S.A. MOST CURRENT ANALYSES of causes of poverty in third world nations place an emphasis on the isolation of the poor from sources of wealth and political power. Newer development strategies consequently tend to discuss mechanisms for the alleviation of such isolation as a means for over- coming poverty (Wriggens and Adler-Karlsson, 1978; Elliott, 1975). Among the mechanisms considered are institutions which are capable of mobilizing the most deprived while providing them with means for protection and for bargaining with the dominant industrial and bureaucratic culture. Networks produced by such institutions are similarly believed capable of reducing the monopolistic control of the bureaucrats and patrons who are both the only mediators normally available to the third world poor and an additional source of their fragmentation, powerlessness and poverty (Haque et. al., 1975; Gamer, 1976). Agricultural co-operatives and labor organizations are among the agencies most commonly considered in the articulation of such strategies. However, business associations, and particularly those serving small trade manufacturing firms, are also of significant interest. Small business enterprises (in both urban and rural areas) are themselves especially critical to
