The Indian economy has observed significant trade reforms since the mid 1980s, and the Indian manufacturing sector has rapidly increased its integration with the world economy. In this paper, the authors ask the question: did the increased trade integration create or destroy jobs in the Indian manufacturing sector? They attempt to answer this question by employing a variety of methodological approaches - factor content, growth accounting and econometric modeling. They also compare India's employment outcomes with four other countries - Bangladesh, Kenya, South Africa and Vietnam, where similar methodological approaches were used.
