    The paper offers a critique of Vivek Chibber, Locked in Place: State-Building and Late Industrialization in India (2003). It argues that Chibber's critique of state-led development in India is neoliberal rather than Marxist in inspiration, and that the neoliberal character of the critique is reinforced by his failure to address the labour-repressive character of the South Korean developmental trajectory with which the Indian case is unfavourably contrasted. Given these attributes, it is not surprising that Chibber reaches conclusions which the World Bank shares.
