Abstract

Using a set of interregional input-output tables built by Guilhoto (1998) for the year of 1992 for 2 Brazilian regions (Northeast and rest of the economy), the methodology developed by Sonis, Hewings, and Miyazawa (1997) is applied in the construction of a series of linkages such that it is possible to examine, through the nature of the internal and external interdependencies giving by the linkages, the structure of trading relationships among the 2 regions. The methodology used in this work is based on a partitioned input-output system and exploits techniques that produce left and right matrix multipliers of the Leontief Inverse, this allows to classify the types of synergetic interactions within a preset pair-wise hierarchy of economic linkages sub-systems. 1 University
