Input-Output Economics and Material Flows

  • Faye Duchin
Part of the Eco-Efficiency in Industry and Science book series (ECOE, volume 23)

Two fields of scientific inquiry can be interconnected effectively only through a clear conceptual overlap. Moreover, the overlapping (that is, the common) concepts must have proven their internal operational effectiveness separately in each one of the adjoining disciplines (Leontief 1959, 1985).
