Hello, hope this is the right place for my question; Someone can help me with this one? I have got the results of a study about the growth of the chemical industry in a certain region. I got in discussion with the authors of the study because I saw that certain chemical projects which will come on stream in the future are not reflected in the projected figures. Their answer was that they used a scientific prdicting method based on "GDP elasticity". Can anybody explain me the basics of this? Keep it simple please! :yuck: Thanks a lot!
