Neoclassical Input-Output analysis
AbstractThe Canadian comparative advantage is determined by the maximization of foreign earnings, subject to 10 input–output relations between 29 industries and 92 commodities. Free trade would boost the mining, quarrying & oil wells, tobacco, and machinery sectors. The structure of the economy is not self-sufficient, as a necessary and sufficient price condition shows. When commodities are aggregated into the 29 sectors, the shadow prices of the programs fulfill the value equations of the input–output analysis and admit a decomposition of Canadian inefficiency in 5% X-inefficiency, 15% allocative inefficiency, and 80% international specialization mismatch.
