Creating a new industry mix

    You have a couple of options: 1) Create an industry balance sheet for the industry to see the strong linkages and subjectively decide if those linkages will move in and to what extent. 2) Look at a proxy region of a similar size with an existing industry and either use that region as a proxy or emulate the local linkages in your regions. Note: if you are not using a proxy, you will need to edit the industry specific RPCs so that the new industry will use the new supporting industries or apply the new indirect effects as an impact. The trade flows method predetermines local use of a commodity and will not incorporate production of a new commodity.

    I like 1 best, and we are thinking about option 2. To make sure I am on the same page; it is reviewing social accounts (explorer), balance sheets, industry, then reviewing the commodity demand to determine which commodities may move to our geography? Thax d- s
