Abstract:

An important question for developing countries is whether labor unions help or hinder economic development. What little has been written on the relationship between union behavior and economic development in South Asia a) fails to distinguish between unions affiliated to major parties (politically incorporated unions) and unincorporated unions and b) fails to grasp the importance of extreme and violent protest behavior for economic outcomes. This paper aims to overcome these deficits by examining how violent forms of protest affect economic development and by providing a political explanation of why some unions resort to militant protest behavior instead of relying on moderate levels of routine protest and institutionalized forms of grievance resolution to pursue their demands.
