Input-output modeling activities have been sponsored by IIASA for many years. These activities provided a link between various research centers as well as associated research groups engaged in constructing similar systems, and also individual researchers interested in the application of input-output type models. The aim of the sixth IIASA meeting was to demonstrate to a wide community of researchers, policy makers and their advisers the likely uses of integrated input-output models in econmic policy both at industrial and national levels. This message is well illustrated. The papers provide the users with illuminating simulation studies showing on the one hand the impact of technological structural changes in the macroaggregates and on the other hand how the changes in macrovariables influence the pattern of changes in particular industries. This volume presents the results of the meeting organized by IIASA and IES in Warsaw.
