This paper is intended to present an analytical model of a consumer demand system and to give an example of its application to empirical data in postwar Japan. The model is called Powell's system, a type of linear expenditure system.

The linear expenditure system has been used by IIASA as a method of carrying out the analysis and prediction of the demand side in various national models concerned with the Food and Agriculture Program (FAP). It is hoped that this paper will be of some help in assessing the efficiency and usefulness of the linear expenditure system in the process of advancing the task at IIASA.
