International Comparisons of the Structure of Production<487:ICOTSO>2.0.CO;2-X
p. 487-521

Hollis B. Chenery, Tsunehiko Watanabe

It first analyses the nature of interdependence as revealed by the pattern of interindustry flows and the extent of similarity in each country. Differences in the cost structure and use of each type of commodity are then measured, and some conclusions are drawn as to their origin.
