The equilibrium solution guarantees that all markets for goods and services clear. Given the equilibrium values for prices and output, we can obtain a whole range of economic information of an aggregate and disaggregate nature and the network of transactions among consumers, firms and factors can be represented in full detail with the use of a Social Accounting Matrix (SAM). The aggregate magnitudes are constructed from the values of the microeconomic variables and they satisfy the conventions of the National Income and Product Accounts.

Similar but symmetric considerations apply to consumer 2. An interesting observation arises from the factor allocation results. 964 versus o1 ¼ 1). A quick appraisal of this price change might lead us to (wrongly) conclude that firms would substitute labor for capital. In fact, less labor and capital is used in sector 1 and more of both factors are used in sector 2. What is the catch here, if any? The answer is that even though there is factor substitution, there also is an output effect that is strong enough to offset the substitution effect.

To bypass this inconvenience we can express macro variables as percentages of GDP, thus partly eliminating the problem since these ratios do not depend on the chosen nume´raire. This option provides us with information on the changing composition of aggregate output, if any, as a result of a tax or other policy related change. If in addition we want to obtain an appraisal of volume effects, the use of some quantity index is then required. A common procedure is to use a Laspeyres index to measure volume changes in real GDP or in any of the other macro magnitudes.
