Impacts of transport strike on Pakistan economy: An inoperability Input-Output model (IIOM) approach

The transport sector has backward and forward linkages with other sectors of the economy. A strike in the transport sector can be disruptive for other interdependent sectors of the economy. This study investigates the macroeconomic impacts of a transportation strike using the Inoperability Input-Output (IIOM) model. The study uses 25 sectors Input-Output tables of Pakistan economy and combines IIOM approach with Monte Carlo Simulations to quantifies the impacts of 21 days (during 2012) transport strike on Pakistan economy. The results indicate that the most affected sector of that strike was financial intermediation sector followed by the food & beverages sector and petroleum, chemical & non-metallic mineral products sector being the second and third most affected sectors, respectively. The study is an application of IIOM in transportation strikes and has usefulness for the policymakers, researchers, and readers that have an interest in application and extensions of Input-Output based analysis.
