The article aims to refine the understanding of the importance of industries as consumers and producers of intermediate products (compared with the results based on the data from World Input-Output Tables for Russia) and calculate the effect of trade integration on production and some other economic indicators by economic activities relying on the input-output analysis for the case of Russian integration into the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). We apply the new official input-output tables published in March, 2017. We show that the structure of the gains from economic integration changes while one switches from the analysis in terms of commodity trade growth to the analysis in terms of value added: the gains reduce for chemicals and machinery (though these industries are still in the top) and increase for services and intermediate products (especially mining).
The paper discusses the possibility of evaluating the effectiveness of the government demand stim ulation for industrial products based on the input–output model. The study aims to simulate the impact of public policies based on a simple calculation using open data on the input–output balance.
The Input-Output Structural Decomposition Analysis approach enables a fairly comprehensive and detailed analysis of the economic growth sources using the input-output model. The active use of this approach is currently hampered by the lack of a reliable instrumental method for constructing symmetrical input-output tables and deflators that permit the output and import indicators to be recalculated by types of products for different years into constant prices, as well as by ambiguity of interpretations of the content of growth sources. The paper discusses the ways to overcome these methodological problems and gives an example of the experimental use of the structural decomposition analysis approach based on the data of the inputoutput tables of the Russian Federation for 2011–2015.
