More than twenty years after its publication, Ken’ichi Miyazawa’s (1976) classic monograph, Input-Output Analysis and the Structure of Income Distribution, stands as the major work in the field. Although several others have made further advances, both conceptually and empirically, one must still acknowledge that input-output income distribution analysis in general, and Miyazawa income distribution multipliers in particular, have not been used to their full potential.
