The new edition of Ronald Miller and Peter Blair's classic textbook is an essential reference for students and scholars in the input-output research and applications community. The book has been fully revised and updated to reflect important developments in the field since its original publication. New topics covered include SAMs (and extended input-output models) and their connection to input-output data, structural decomposition analysis (SDA), multiplier decompositions, identifying important coefficients, and international input-output models. A major new feature of this edition is that it is also supported by an accompanying website with solutions to all problems, wide-ranging real-world data sets, and appendices with further information for more advanced readers. Input-Output Analysis is an ideal introduction to the subject for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in a wide variety of fields, including economics, regional science, regional economics, city, regional and urban planning, environmental planning, public policy analysis, and public management.
'Generations of scholars and practitioners in input-output grew up with Miller and Blair (MB). The last generation had to learn the trade using a worn out copy from the library or a thumbed xerox copy of a xerox copy of MB. With the new version, MB2, input-output seems well equipped for future generations. [...] MB has been THE input-output textbook for the past decades. I anticipate that MB2 will be THE textbook in input-output for many decades to come.' Erik Dietzenbacher, University of Groningen
