 Opportunity Models

Show Summary Details


This is the first of six chapters on the logic of price. Choice presupposes opportunity, and this chapter gives some account of that side of economic models. The four sections of the chapter are: the production function; general input–output; von Neumann's activity system; and axiomatics of Koopmans's (activity) system. Von Neumann's activity system is further discussed in the last chapter of Part IV (IV.6) as von Neumann's economic model.

Keywords: choice; economic models; input–output; Koopmans's activity system; opportunity models; price; production function; von Neumann's activity system; von Neumann's model
