Analysis of a single-fold deployable truss beam preloaded by extension of selected face diagonal members
I owe a special note of gratitude to Michele Boldrin for his encouragement and many critical comments. A version of the model with relatively more important sectoral shocks results in a sizeable decline in the cyclicality of labor productivity and is consistent with changes in several other business cycle moments observed in the data. Abstract A principal components decomposition of sectoral IP data reveals that the contribution of aggregate shocks to the variance of aggregate output Sectoral shocks and economic fluctuations from about 70 percent in the period 1967—1983 to about 30 percent after 1983.
" American Economic Journal: Macroeconomics, 9 4 : 254-80. Limited interaction, characterized by a sparse intermediate input-use matrix, reduces substitution possibilities among intermediate inputs which strengthens comovement in sectoral value-added and leads to a postponement of the law of large numbers in the variance of aggregate value-added.

Abstract I quantify the contribution of sectoral shocks to business cycle fluctuations in aggregate output. E24 Employment; Unemployment; Wages; Intergenerational Income Distribution; Aggregate Human Capital; Aggregate Labor Productivity• Building on Horvath, 1998, Review of Economic Dynamics 1, 781—808, which establishes the theoretical foundation for the relevance of limited interaction in the context of a stylized multisector model, this paper specifies a more general multisector model calibrated to the US 2-digit Standard Industrial Code economy.
Simulations prove the model is able to match empirical reality as closely as standard one-sector business cycle models without relying on aggregate shocks.
We develop an "islands" model with two sectors and costly labor reallocation to investigate how this change in the relative importance of shocks alters business cycle moments. This paper presents a multisector dynamic general equilibrium model of business cycles with a distinctive feature: aggregate fluctuations are driven by independent sectoral shocks. These complementarities indicate that industry-specific shocks are substantially more important than previously thought, accounting for at least half of aggregate volatility.

The chief virtue of this model is that reliance on implausible aggregate shocks is not necessary to capture the qualitative features of macroeconomic fluctuations.
J24 Human Capital; Skills; Occupational Choice; Labor Productivity.
J21 Labor Force and Employment, Size, and Structure• The model hypothesizes that trade among sectors provides a strong synchronization mechanism for these shocks due to the limited, but locally intense, interaction that is characteristic of such input trade flows.
E13 General Aggregative Models: Neoclassical• I develop and estimate a multi-industry general equilibrium model in which each industry employs the material and capital goods produced by other sectors.
"How Important Are Sectoral Shocks? D12 Consumer Economics: Empirical Analysis• Abstract A principal components decomposition of sectoral IP data reveals that the contribution of aggregate shocks to the variance of aggregate output declined from about 70 percent in the period 1967—1983 to about 30 percent after 1983.
The chief virtue of this model is that reliance on implausible aggregate shocks is not necessary to capture the qualitative features of macroeconomic fluctuations.
