The Fourth IIASA Task Force Meeting on Input-Output Modeling set out to examine how fully I/O modeling captures the substance of policy issues such as energy conversion problems, changes in consumer behavior patterns, and aspects of foreign trade under new and evolving world market conditions. The 28 papers presented are arranged here in three sections. In the first section, ten papers review the results and lessons of modeling work aimed at understanding structural change in the economies of the United States, the GDR, Nigeria, Japan, Hungary, the Soviet Union, Austria, the FRG, and Italy. The papers in the second section are tied together by their focus on issues related to international trade. The first three comment on the structure of trade for Hungary, Austria, and Italy; the next four are interrelated contributions from the NordHand group of modelers (in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden); the final paper in the section discusses a model of interdependent structural change within the European Communities. In the third section of the book are ten papers dealing with the empirical analysis of structural change through the examination of interindustry interactions and energy analysis. Four papers open the section by analyzing the changing intermediate coefficients in studies of Poland, Finland, Austria, and Hungary. These are followed by four contributions that explore and extend traditional techniques in studies of the economies of Denmark, the European Community, and Austria as well as a long-term application to project the profitability of ethanol production; the volume ends with papers that discuss factors connected with changes in the structure of industrial production in Italy and Czechoslovakia.
