Sacred Cattle and More Sacred Production Functions

necessitates the help of these intermediaries.
Climatic variations apart, an excessive supply of labour, particularly of the unskilled category, acts as a hindrance to any decasualisation scheme. It is argued that, so long as a stable output can be had without maintaining stability of jobs or, in other words, with an unstable labour-force most of which is employed on a casual basis, there may be a tendency in the policy on employment to be subjected to a 'go-slow' on decasualisation. Again, if one looks not from the output-stability point of view, but from the employment- stability point of view, it may be argued with equal force that, so long as the demand for labour in the aggregate is maintained at a stable level for a fairly long period, there seems to be a priori justification for decasualisation.
