Modeling Structural Linkages in Dynamic and Spatial Interindustry Systems

  • Guy R. West
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)


In economics, as in most other disciplines, we use models to illustrate complex relationships among economic variables and other related objects, such as the environment. A model is just a simplified characterization of reality. Like a road map, it highlights the main features of interest but treats as background those characteristics not crucial to the purpose at hand. Through simplification, less is held in view so that more can be understood of what is retained.
