Input-output analysis was invented by Wassily Leontief, who continued to be closely involved with its development, mostly in the United States. This chapter organizes the history in a nice, concrete way, by tracing the input-output tables of the USA from 1939 until 2007, released in 2014. The history is peppered by observations of Leontief's close collaborators Anne Carter and Clopper Almon, shared with the author. The chapter concludes with a clear discussion of the myths of input-output tables, such as consistency and purity.
