Abstract

The empirical implementation of general equilibrium models is greatly facilitated by the organization of input-output data, and related data on national income, production and public accounts into the framework known as a social accounting matrix (SAM). A SAM is a double-entry accounting system that owes its origins to the work of Nobel Laureate, Sir Richard Stone, founder of the United Nations’ System of National Accounts (SNA).
