About the Authors
  • Wassily Leontief was the founding father of input-output economics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in 1973. This book offers a collection of papers in his memory by his students and close colleagues. The first part focuses upon Leontief as an individual and scholar as well as his personal contributions to economics; the second includes new theoretical and empirical research inspired by Leontief's efforts. The collection offers a comprehensive sample of the current state of interindustry economics and is likely to appeal to a wide range of professionals.

    • Focuses on the work of 1973 Nobel laureate Wassily Leontief
    • Includes recent research by top names in the field of input-output analysis, covering a wide range of topics
    • Includes papers by Nobel laureates Paul A. Samuelson and Lawrence R. Klein and a previously unpublished interview with Leontief and his wife
