In considering an industry's production function versus value added coefficients coefficients, are interest payments on loans (say to a bank) allocated to a finance industry in the production function, or are those payments allocated to OPTI in value added? What about the associated principal payments? I'm developing a new industry in implan via primary data collected and I'm trying to make sure that total outlays are equal to the total outputs. Similary, rental payments (say for land or building space) are allocated to OPTI? Depreciation, I expect, is not included, but I want to make sure I know what a capital consumption allowance is. Thanks for the clarifications, Todd
