Negatives in symmetric input–output tables: the impossible quest for the Holy Grail
AbstractIn the Supply-Use (or Make-Use) input-output model, âproduct-technologyâ (PT) or âfixed-industry-sales-structureâ (FISS) assumptions are more widely adopted (SNA, Eurostat) for deriving symmetric input-output tables (SIOT) than âindustry-technologyâ or âfixed-product-sales-structureâ assumptions, but generate negatives in the SIOT. A SIOT deduced from the Supply-Use model is considered as satisfactory as soon as it contains no more negatives: scholars have focused on the negatives in the SIOT and on how to remove them. However, as a SIOT may include no negatives even if there are some negatives in the inverse Supply matrix, we have completely reversed the reasoning. A counter-example demonstrates that computing the inverse Supply matrix, as imposed by PT or FISS assumptions, is mathematically a nonsense operation even when the SIOT does not include any negative; this result is new. Hence, deriving a SIOT under PT or FISS assumptions must be rejected. Three applications are provided: Austria 2000 and 2005 and USA 2007.
