If sector 1 produces 10 units, sector 2 produces 20 units and sector 3 produces 10 units, this combined production will use up 10 units of sector 1’s products, 13 units of sector 2’s products and 15 units of sector 3’s products. b. D = the amount from each sector that is available for sale. In this case, 0 units of sector 1’s products (since the amount that sector 1 produced equals the amount that was

Unformatted text preview: consumed internally), 7 units of sector 2’s products will be available for sale, and -5 units of sector 3’s units will be available (So more of sector 3’s products were used up than were produced – which is only possible if there is a stockpile on hand.) c. (I –A)-1 D = X = the amount that was produced. In this case, 10 units from sector 1, 20 units from sector 2 and 10 units from sector 3. 6a. If a ij = 0, then sector j requires 0 units of sector i’s products b. It is impossible to need negative units of something for production. c. If a column totals more than 1, then producing $1 of something requires more than $1 worth of inputs, leading to instant debt.
