Estimating the Impact of Foreign Competition on the Wisconsin Wood Furniture Industry. Part 1. A Quantitative Input-Output Analysis. Forest Products Journal read online review & book description:

Abstract In recent years, the State of Wisconsin has lost manufacturing employment in the non-upholstered wood household furniture industry. Foreign competition has been identified as a major factor in this loss. By interviewing furniture companies in Wisconsin, and by using quantitative information gathered in the interviews, both the impact of the wood furniture industry and the effects of foreign competition were estimated using input-output modeling. The findings suggest that more than 724 jobs were lost as a direct result of downsizing or closing of Wisconsin non-upholstered wood household furniture plants. The input-output model estimated an additional 544 jobs were lost in related industries as a result of these manufacturing losses. Total output dollar losses for direct, indirect, and induced effects on Wisconsin's economy could have been as high as $117 million.
