I could very well have missed it, but I didn't see the equations
technical change in your model (or "illustration"  ... or
example".  Pick whatever term you prefer).  What is the nature of
technical change that occurs in your 2-sector circulating

btw, as someone who likes to sail, I was somewhat tickled by the
that food is the only means of production used to produce yachts.
I don't
think that boat will  float (but that is another story that I
would agree is
irrelevant for the purposes of this discussion).

In solidarity, Jerry
