This paper explores Rosenstein-Rodan's idea that simultaneous In- dustrialization ol many sectors of the economy can be profitable for them all even when no sector can break even industrialking alone. We analy~e this idea in the context of an imperfectly competitive economy with aggregate demand spillovers and interpret the big push into industrialization as a move from a bad lo good equilib- rium. We prescIir three mechanisms for generating a big push and discuss their relevance fo~ less developed countries.
