Economics, thermodynamics and process analysis

Author: Ayres, Robert U. INSEAD Area: Economics and Political Science Series: Working Paper ; 94/11/EPS Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD Centre for the Management of Environmental and Social Responsibility (CMER) 1994.Language: EnglishDescription: 26 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: Explicit process analysis can be integrated, in principle, with either CGE (Computable General Equilibrium) or I-O (Input-Output) models. This hybrid scheme provides a natural means of satisfying physical constraints, especially the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Process analysis is really the only avaible tool for constructing plausible alternative future I-O tables, and generating materials/energy and waste emissions coefficients. Explicit process analysis also helps avoid several characteristic problems of either CGE or I-O models, viz. (1) aggregation errors (2) inability to handle arbitrary combinations of co-product and co-input relationships and (3) inability to reflect certain non-linearities such as internal feedback loops Next title: Economics, thermodynamics and process analysis (RV of 94/11/EPS) - Ayres, Robert U.;Axtell, R. - 1994 - INSEAD Working Paper
