In view of the strange conditions in which socially, politically and economically the developing nations are positioned, there is not merely a huge necessity about economic growth but also an substantially much better endeavor is necessary to produce the forces of economic development. This attempt is clearly past private venture in such nations. Due to unpleasant economic, political, and social aspects, these nations have been for long in a condition of economic dormancy. They are at present becoming painfully conscious of the broadening inequality, between their financial state and that of the developed nations, who are becoming wealthier each day while they are trapped up in the cruel circle of poverty. This requires a broad set of measures to be implemented by the management not only to wake them up from the condition of economic stagnancy but to see them rally rapidly on the road of growth

The following are the important measures which are required for the management of an under-developed nation to take in order to speed up the development of economic growth:

 (v) Indirect Measures

Besides promoting economic development directly as explained above, the governments of under-developed countries promote economic growth of their countries indirectly too. The indirect measures relate to the adoption of economic policies which may be conducive to economic growth. These policies mainly are: monetary policy, fiscal policy and commercial policy.
