Show Summary Details


Social accounting is concerned only with values; it is not concerned with the quantities which these values represent, nor (in consequence) with price per unit of quantity. Thus, we could deal with the accounting matters, which were the sole concern in Chapter 3, without making any assumption about physical homogeneity. This chapter attempts to set the economic model to work by introducing the standard simplifications of modern growth theory — taking the price-system, in particular, in the simplest possible terms.

Keywords: social accounting; economic model; value; modern growth theory; price-system
