Post-growth economists propose structural changes towards labour-intensive services, such as care or education, to make our economy more sustainable by providing meaningful work and reducing the environmentally damaging production of material goods. Our study investigates the assumption underlying such proposals. Using a multi-regional input-output model we compare the embodied Author: Lukas Hardt, John Barrett, Peter G. Taylor, Timothy J.

It owes its origin to Prof. Wassily Leontief. Input-output analysis is of special interest to the national-income economist because it provides a very detailed breakdown of the macro-aggregates and money flows. This [ ]. The ‘labour quality’ index,, basically measures compositional shift or structural change among the labour types in the class L, because it is a ratio of two quantity indices.
