Dasgupta in American Political Science Review

August 9, 2018

Professor Aditya Dasgupta's paper "Technological Change and Political Turnover: The Democratizing Effects of the Green Revolution in India" has just been published in the American Political Science Review! Congratulations to Prof. Dasgupta!

The study examines the linkage between disruptive technological change and political turnover, using the green revolution -- a period of rapid technological advancement in agricultural -- as a historical natural experiment. By leveraging the introduction of high-yielding variety crops and a variety of statistical methods, Dasgupta shows that the green revolution played a crucial role in the growth of agrarian opposition parties in India.
