5. See my Strategy of Economic Development (New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 1958), Chapter 6. The first rough outline of the idea is in a paper written in 1954 and republished as Chapter 1 in A Bias for Hope: Essays on Development and Latin America (New Haven, Conn.: Yale University Press, 1971), pp. 59–61.

Nugent, “A Balanced Growth Version of the Linkage Hypothesis,” Quarterly Journal of Economics 87 (May 1973): 157–72. The latter article has led to a regular symposium on linkage effect measurement, with contributions by Prem S. Laumas, Michel Boucher, James Riedel, Leroy P. Jones, and a reply by Yotopoulos and Nugent in Quarterly Journal of Economics 90 (May 1976): 308–43. The paper by Jones is particularly noteworthy for solving, at last, the problem of how to measure total (direct and indirect) forward linkage effects.

In Chapter 7 of Strategy, I had described the same phenomenon—the “swallowing up” through industrialization of successive categories of expanding imports in the course of export-led growth—but had not characterized it as a linkage.
