Unformatted text preview: MATH 1711: SECTION 2.6 INPUTOUTPUT ANALYSIS Basic Idea : Consider an economy consisting of a set of industries, where each industry depends on the other for goods. Inputs are what each industry needs to create a final product. Outputs are the final products. We build an inputoutput matrix to hold all the information in a given problem. The entry a ij represents the amount of industry i s product needed to produced $1 worth of industry j s product (given as percentages). In general, if A is the inputoutput matrix, X is the variable matrix (how much monetary value each industry should produce), and D is the consumers demand for the products, we have the formula X AX = D, which we solve by factoring out an X : ( I A ) X = D and multiplying by the inverse of I A : X = ( I A ) 1 D. Here, X = amount produced, AX =amount used in production, or internal demand, and D =amount left for consumers, or external demand....
