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

Abstract

As aforementioned, on the occasion of closing this volume of the Economic Effects of Public Investment, let me say a few words. Looking back through all the Chap.  1,  2,  3,  4,  5,  6,  7,  8,  9 and  10, I am fully or in some sense satisfied, for so far there has been no chance of putting my thoughts together systematically in such a style that is different from the series, New Frontiers in Regional Science: Asian Perspectives, volume 2: : Using an Interregional Input–Output Programming Model [14], for which the chance to write a survey paper has occurred two or three times. So, until having finished, I cannot expect to cover all the details of Volume 1.
