11 Since q(0)SD[l,0,... ,0] is a row vector that is positive in its first component only, while the first row of T is a strictly positive left eigenvector of B, for k very large q(k) becomes very close to a left eigenvector of B corresponding to Xmax(B). 12 0 B22 in which the submatrices B n and B22 are, respectively, m and n — m square. 13 26 The physical economy-environment system such that q{(k) and q2(k) are m and n — m dimensional vectors, respectively, it is clear that the time path of the first m resources in the system is entirely independent of the time path of the last n — m resources.

It follows that a jointly determined economy-environment system satisfying the conservation of mass condition may be technologically stationary (implying no change in the level and combination of inputs employed in all processes) only if there is full employment of all resources in all periods. Since, by the conservation of mass condition, q(fc) = q(k)A(k) for all k > 0, q(k) * q(k)A(k - 1) implies that A(k) ¥= A(k — 1). 19 is equal to zero. The assumption that the system is technologically stationary is consistent with the assumption that it is thermodynamically closed only if the system generates no residuals in any period.

8 B, Notice that the distinction between durable and nondurable resources is separate from the conventional distinction between renewable and exhaustible resources. We are used to thinking of renewable resources as those capable of regeneration over a few decades, and of exhaustible resources as those requiring millennia to regenerate (Fisher, 1981, p. 11). Timber is renewable by such a criterion, oil is not. We cannot, however, say a priori whether timber or oil is the more durable in production since this depends on the way in which each is used.
