Lesson 11: Circular Flow | Unit 1: Basic Flow Page: 6 of 22

Topic: Summary <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

  • The circular flow model, which is the continuous production and consumption interaction among the four major sectors-household, business, government, and foreign-- that takes place through the three aggregated macroeconomic markets--product, factor and financial.
  • The basic role of the sectors--household, business, government and foreign--of the economy.
  • The three aggregated markets: (a) Product markets: All markets in the economy that exchange final goods and services. (b) Factor markets: All markets that exchanges the services of the economy's labor resources. (c) Financial markets: All markets that trade financial instruments.
  • The physical flow, which is the counter-clockwise flow of resources from the household to the business sector and of production from the business to the household sector.
  • The payment flow, which is the clockwise flow of payment for resources purchased by the business from the household sector and of payment for production purchased by the household to the business sector.
  • The continuous circular flow of payments: GDP used for factor payments, which becomes national income, which is used for consumption to buy GDP.

This isn't me! What am I?

Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland, was the pseudonym of Charles Dodgson, an accomplished mathematician and economist.
"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date. "

-- Dale Carnegie
