QUASI-PUBLIC CORPORATION: A business activity that is privately controlled, but authorized by government legislation. The Federal National Mortgage Association is one example. Quasi-public corporations are set up when governments expand their activities and/or divest themselves of current government functions. Quasi-public corporations often result because governments seek to promote a particular activity, such as student loans, low cost home mortgages, or lotteries, but do not want the administrative burden.

CIRCULAR FLOW

A model of the continuous movement of production, income, and the services of scarce resources that flow between producers and consumers. In particular, the circular flow is a model of the continuous production and consumption interaction among the four major sectors of the macroeconomy--household, business, government, and foreign--using the three macroeconomic markets--product, resource, and financial. The circular flow model provides a easy way of getting the "big picture" and of seeing how the key parts of the macroeconomy fit together.
