Generalization of Technological Propagation/Diffusion Externalities Based on the General Equilibrium Model of Formation Process of Marshallian External Economies: Number 4

  • Hirotada Kohno
Part of the New Frontiers in Regional Science: Asian Perspectives book series (NFRSASIPER, volume 1)


As mentioned in the Sect.  8.1.1 of Chap.  8, we have treated selectively the independently existing indirect economic effects, different from the transferred effects from the direct effects. In Chap.  9, we have coped with the task that the following “two” will coincide with each other (transferred effects ≒ indirect effects) or come to be incidence base effects > transferred effects, and then the independently existing theory can be proved, in the form of contrasting the effects in generation base (this is the direct effects) with the effects in incidence base (which include the pure indirect effects existing independently except the transferred effects). This is, so to speak, that we have tackled on the “existence demonstration” concerning the pure indirect effects which exist independently. This chapter is based on [17], [10, pp. 57–63], [11], [13], [15], etc.
