Nobel Prize in Economics 1973.

Taught economics at Harvard and New York University.

• Closed or Input/Output Model

• Closed system of industries

• Output of each industry is consumed by industries in the model

• Open or Production Model

• Incorporates outside demand

• Some of the output of each industry is used by other industries in the model and some is left over to satisfy outside demand

• Example 1 (Anton page 582)

p1 = daily wages of carpenter

p2 = daily wages of electrician

p3 = daily wages of plumber

Each homeowner should receive that same value in labor that they provide.

Exchange matrix

Price vector

Find p such that

Nonnegative entries and column sums of 1 for E.

This equation has nontrivial solutions if

Shown to always be true in Exercise 7.

If E is an exchange matrix, then always has a nontrivial solution pwhose entries are nonnegative.

Let E be an exchange matrix such that for some positive integer m all the entries of Em are positive. Then there is exactly one linearly independent solution to , and it may be chosen so that all its entries are positive.

For proof see Theorem 10.5.4 for Markov chains.

• The output of each industry is not completely consumed by the industries in the model

• Some excess remains to meet outside demand

Production vector

Demand vector

Consumption matrix

Nonnegative entries in all matrices.

Row i (i=1,2,…,k) is the amount of industry i’s output consumed in the production process.

Excess production available to satisfy demand is given by

C and d are given and we must find x to satisfy the equation.

• Three Industries

• Coal-mining

• Power-generating

x1 = \$ output coal-mining

x2 = \$ output power-generating

If is invertible,

If all entries of are nonnegative there is a unique nonnegative solution x.

Definition: A consumption matrix C is said to be productive if exists and all entries of are nonnegative.

A consumption matrix C is productive if and only if there is some production vector x  0 such thatx Cx.

For proof see Exercise 9.

A consumption matrix is productive if each of its row sums is less than 1.

A consumption matrix is productive if each of its column sums is less than 1.

(Profitable consumption matrix)

For proof see Exercise 8.
