That dif®culty could be overcome nicely by specially prepared surveys circulated to appropriate representatives of the government and business communities. Besides, survey data would give ICOM a character of its own; ICOM would become unique. Finally, it must be remembered that ICOM has a forecasting dimension.
They can be expected to move from where they are relatively abundant to where they are relatively scarce, especially when scarcity (abundance) is re¯ected in high (low) prices. Secondly, the quantity of labour and capital available in a country changes through processes of population growth and capital accumulation, respectively. These changes may only partially re¯ect price or scarcity and the impact on aggregate quantities of labour and capital may be slow.
