Agricultural colonization and the roots of backwardness in the punjab. Only certain parts of the world experience meaningful growth and development. These regions have risen by industrialization (or looting third world countries now). They have high levels of productivity, specialization and technological attainment (trading advantages) Underdeveloped areas have mass poverty, no economic growth which created a cycle of deprivation. The reasons of this is that early industrializations and imperialist powers, temperate regions, recent white settlement. Economic growth has indeed occurred in the backward countries so poverty and deprivation are not a function of stagnation or inactivity. Factors include colonial expropriation, distortion of indigenous productive capacities to meet metropolitan needs, retardation under colonial diktat of industrialization process. Economic growth has proved highly productive for certain regions, but for some it has held. Punjab ruled by british in india in which western parts experienced extensive economic growth like the canal constitution and immigration transformed the economic structure.
