    The purpose of this paper is to analyse some quantities related to social reproduction approach. First, three strategic topics are put on view, namely: a) outputs minus inputs, b) outputs divided inputs, c)sub-systems. However, it has to be taken into account that there are obstacles which make not easy to operationalize these fundamental concepts. Some possible ways to get around these difficulties are shown (by means of theoretical constructs invented by Leontief, von Neumann and Sraffa). After, two new indicators are examined; one refers to the self-reproducing goods -the "own surplus rate"-, and the other to all basic goods -"coefficient of net reproduction". A few hints are proposed in order to create indicators of the same family in Ecological economics and Feminist economics. Lastly, a conjecture on recommended directions of Research and Development is suggested.
