About this book


The book describes the construction method for a global accounting framework, referred to as the world accounting matrix (WAM). It shows how a WAM can be used for the analysis of trade and finance in a global context and demonstrates how it can contribute to the solution of the large statistical problems in national and global macroeconomic data.
