"...it will be widely welcomed, and, more importantly, widely read." Review of Radical Political Economics
"Shaikh and Tonak's book is certain to become the standard reference....obviously a 'must read' for all those interested in heterodox empirical work...." Journal of Economic Literature
"...[an] impresssive work...The pattern of production that emerges from this analysis is quite different from that of the conventional accounts." E. Kacapyr, Choice
"Their main contribution is to develop an extremely detailed, consistent, and comprehensive alternative to the conventional input-output tables and income and product accounts, based on the classical distinction between production and nonproduction activities....no one has succeeded to the same degree. Shaikh and Tonak's book is certain to become the standard reference for further empirical work in this tradition....This book is obviously a 'must read' for all those interested in heterodox empirical work...." Fred Moseley, Journal of Economic Literature
This study provides an alternate foundation for the measurement of the production of nations, and applies it to the U.S. economy for the postwar period. The patterns that result are significantly different from those derived within conventional systems of national accounts.
