Linked System of Enterprise, Regional and National Input-Output Accounts for Policy Analysis

Most input-output analysts make macroeconomic studies at regional, national, or even global levels. Recently, some analysts have begun to work in an exciting new area of research where they construct input-output accounts at the microeconomic — individual firm — level. In a previous paper, Polenske (1989) discussed briefly how corporation input-output accounts can be linked to regional and national input-output accounts. Because of the increased interdependence in economic activity, not only must macro planners be aware of policy changes by firms, but firm managers must also be aware of relevant policy changes happening in the regional, national and international spheres. A linked input-output system of accounts provides an excellent means of portraying these relationships. The purpose of this chapter, therefore, is to extend this important concept in two ways.

Abstract

Most input-output analysts make macroeconomic studies at regional, national, or even global levels. Recently, some analysts have begun to work in an exciting new area of research where they construct input-output accounts at the microeconomic — individual firm — level. In a previous paper, Polenske (1989) discussed briefly how corporation input-output accounts can be linked to regional and national input-output accounts. Because of the increased interdependence in economic activity, not only must macro planners be aware of policy changes by firms, but firm managers must also be aware of relevant policy changes happening in the regional, national and international spheres. A linked input-output system of accounts provides an excellent means of portraying these relationships. The purpose of this chapter, therefore, is to extend this important concept in two ways.
