THE MULTIREGIONAL INPUT-OUTPUT PRICE MODEL: TRANSPORTATION CASE STUDY
The purpose of the research was to develop a version of the multiregional input-output model for use in forecasting the effect of transportation price increases on regional commodity prices. In the thesis particular attention is given to the impact of a transportation price increase on the price of commodities produced in Massachusetts and New England. The heavy reliance of the New England region on the transportation industry is discussed, particularly in the shipment of commodities into and out of the area.
