Perfect Transfer Theory of Indirect Economic Effects Formation: Based on the Generation Base vs. Incidence Base

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


As to the formation of indirect benefits (≒economic effects), there are the transfer theory and the independent existence theory; apart from the former “transfer theory,” we call the assertion that does not utterly admit independently existing indirect benefits to be “perfect transfer theory.” Here, we intend to elucidate this assertion invoking the notion of generation base vs. incidence base, etc. (mainly, see [1]). About the independent existence theory, we treat it later.
