  • R. Hjerppe
Part of the International Economic Association Conference Volumes, Numbers 1–50 book series (IEA)


In this paper some of the experience gained in the construction of an input-output programming model for the Finnish economy will be discussed. The target in the construction of the model was to examine whether at this stage of the collection of data and of developing computing facilities an empirical allocation model could be constructed which would be useful for planning purposes in an economy such as Finland’s.
