Inter-industry Repercussions of Major Technological Innovations
This paper presents a preliminary exploration of an underdeveloped sector of the economic effects of technological innovations. It has three basic objectives: to review some basic limitations of most past studies; to suggest some concepts and analytical approaches for improving coverage of the fuller range of such effects; and to provide some empirical illustrations of the additional insights which may be obtained.
