I want to analyze the impact of a new firm on a local community. The new firm will purchase the exact same inputs as is average for the industry and in the same proportion.
However, unlike the average firm in the industry in the local community, the new firm will buy most of its inputs from outside the community (even though plenty of these inputs can be found locally). This might be because, say, the new firm has a preexisting link with input suppliers that it always uses.
For instance, if the average firm in the industry buys, say, 50% of its needed accounting services locally (as for accounting services RPC = 0.5), the new firm might buy 0% of accounting services locally as it always uses an accounting firm far away.
What is the best way to model this one new firm?
