These indirect effects occur when changing sales of tradables cause demand for nontradable intermediate inputs to change, and when households employed in producing tradables change their purchases of nontradables because of variation in their incomes. They are found by returning to equations (22) and (23) and taking the derivatives with respect to changes in output of farm and nonfarm tradables. at. at]. mt. mt].

MBSs are computed for the overall sample and for sample subgroups by evaluating the coefficients at the sample subgroup means. The coefficients derive from the additive properties of MBSs, which permit estimation of the model parameters for the entire data set but estimation of results for specific strata using subgroup averages of data on the right-hand side. Rural Growth Multipliers As discussed in Chapter 2, growth multipliers estimate an upper bound for how much extra net income growth can be had from stimulating the nontradable (demand-constrained) sectors with a stream of new income from the traded sectors.

Adding to this judgment, the interior regions of West Africa cannot import coarse grains from the world market on a consistent basis, at unsubsidized prices, because of high transfer costs. Furthermore, there is a substantial body of evidence, partially reviewed in Chapter 2, suggesting that world market grains such as rice and wheat are not good substitutes for millet and sorghum in the landlocked countries, particularly because their calories are much more expensive. The issue of the tradability of coarse grains at the national level in Senegal and Burkina Faso depends on whether they are occasionally imported or exported (a rare event), and whether their prices are closely linked to items that are traded.
