MULTIREGIONAL ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF ENERGY AND TRANSPORTATION POLICIES
The report presents a multiregional empirical analysis of energy and transportation. The study shows how the multiregional input-output (MRID) model for the United States can be used to analyze energy and transportation policies in general. A specific study deals with the economic interaction between electricity, coal, and freight transportation created by changes in the regional technologies of generating electricity as well as alterations in the interregional shipments of coal. Recommendations are given for extending the MRID data base and modifying the MRID model to increase its usefulness for the study of energy and transportation at the regional level.
