Most developing countries profits account for a large proportion of national income, but their origins and use are widely divergent, related to the nature of ownership of the enterprise. This will be illustrated by the way profits go in Indonesia.
By industry of origin (38 subsectors) they accrue to four categories of owners, (foreign, public, private national incorporated, unincorporated), next the imputed income of the self-employed is substracted in order to arrive at the functional distribution of income by sector, and lastly the destination (depreciation, interests, taxes, dividends, retained earnings) of each type of corporate capital income is shown.
The estimates indicate a segmentation of activities, with regards to ownership as well as factor shares.
