Microsimulation, economic planning, databases, input output analysis.


The process of economic planning is classically dealt with Leontief’s input-output analysis. In this work we indicate some problems that arose in the building and use of this method. We propose an alternative method that uses a productive enterprises’ database and a microsimulation procedure to determine the propagation of economic changes to the whole set of enterprises, to see the impact of the changes and to guide the procedures to implement them.
