After we have all celebrated Independence Day, come meet IMPLAN’s Uncle SAM - the Social Accounting Matrix!  The SAM traces monetary flows between industries through debits and credits similar to basic financial accounting. SAM extends traditional Input Output accounts by also providing information on non-market financial flows like, industry-institution transfers, inter-institution transfers, and the transfer of funds between people. Join Maria Lucas as she shares an overview of IMPLAN’s Uncle SAM, what he can do for you, and even the differences between Final Demand, Value Added, and Output. This session will be held the second Friday of the month on July 9 at 1 p.m. ET.
