Abstract:
This thesis explores the causes and consequences of resource misallocation and energy efficiency in the context of firm heterogeneity in Indian manufacturing. In the first chapter, I quantify misallocation in the Indian cast iron sector. I develop a method to disentangle distortions that capture input misallocation from fundamental demand heterogeneity across firms. In the second chapter I explore why material inputs are misallocated in the cast iron sector, focusing on differences in access to suppliers through the transportation network. In the third chapter I estimate the causal relationship between industrial electricity prices and electricity productivity for a large panel of Indian plants.
