Input-Output economic analysis, developed by Wassily Leontief, for which he won the Nobel Prize, continues to be an active area of research. Not only do academics find it a powerful tool in understanding how large-scale economiesDSespecially national economiesDSwork, but many governments maintain computer input-output models to study their own economies. This is a volume of modern research using the I-O model focusing on technology, planning, and development. Contributors: S. De Boer, G. Broesterhuizen, Chia-Yon Chen, E. Fontela, A. Ghosh, A. G.

This heterogeneity of papers provides a broad overview of th substantial developments of tools of input-oputput analysis. The book is of good quality as is reflected last but not least in a three-page index at the end of the book. * H. Schnabl, Universitat Stuttgart, Journal of Evolutionary Economics, Vol. 4, No. 2/94 * 'The use of a range of possible applications of input-output techniques for evolutionary processes, the consideration of intertwining aspects and the detail of the data provided imply important information for evolutionary economics. The book is of good quality, as is reflected last but not least in a three-page index at the end of the book.'
