Trade Under Changing Networks and Technology

  • John R. Roy
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)


In Sect. 2.2.1, classical national, interregional and multi-regional input-output analysis is described. Although transport itself can be defined as a sector in the input-output tables, linear input-output analysis, or even the non-linear CGE (Computable General Equilibrium) analysis, provide quite ‘blunt instruments’ for investigations of the influences of transport network changes on the patterns of trade and associated regional output. Analysis is further complicated if changes of technology are occurring at the same times as the transport network changes or changes in transport pricing.
