The paper describes extensions and proposed extensions of the scope of a previously described model of capabilities of the US economy after nuclear attack. The previous publication, Bernard Sobin, A Model of Technological Capacity To Support Survivors of Nuclear Attack, RAC-TP-313, September 1968, describes a static, linear programming model of physical capabilities without regard to transportation constraints. That model is here augmented with a submodel simulating an earlier period of postattack reconstruction preceding the steady state accounted for by the original model. Also presented in the paper is a preliminary form of a model of the inflationary pressures that, under present plans for management of the economy after nuclear attack, would be generated by the activities included in the linear programming model.
