The objective of this paper is to provide a model to deal with multi-dimensional social goals on a regionalized (as well as national) basis and to relate these to each other in the context of a national economic system. Input-Output (Interindustry) Analysis is therefore regionalized and reformulated in a way that connects it to national economic policy variables in a Keynsian framework. Possible multiple objectives and controls are examined and their possible further developments are also sketched in a context of regionalized and social goals that differ from region to region and also from time to time. Various proposals for revenue sharing are exhibited and interpreted in the light of the possibilities this model admits. Special attention is given to the Nixon (President Nixon) and ACIR (Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations) plans in contrast to a multi-goal dynamic and adaptive control-incentive scheme with "saturating" indices of goal attainment. The latter, suggested at the end of this paper, is designed so that it can permit variation between regions while maintaining minimum levels of comparable attainment on goals that are common to more than one region.
