Why is this helpful to anybody? Well, it is extremely useful in calculating GDP. GDP is simply the monetary value of all the goods produced in one year. The circular flow model shows that since all money flows in a circle, the government can essentially collect data at one point to determine the total value produced by the whole economy, or the GDP. There are two common approaches: The income approach measures all the money households receive in a year, reporting which is required by the federal government.
The second approach is the expenditure approach , which is dependent on how much households spend every year, which can be determined from the tax returns of businesses. Government purchases from business are also included in the counting of GDP. You might have already guessed, there is something huge missing from this model — the rest of the world.
No country functions as an island. Rather, we all make trades with other countries in order to maximize our standard of living. International trade is another component outside of the main circle of money. This refers to the countries that buy and sell in both the resource and product markets of other countries.
Additionally, the model assumes that all the money a household earns is spent and that all the money a business collects is paid back, but in reality, households save a portion of their income, and likewise, businesses invest some. Savings , which are defined as income not spent by households, are considered a leakage from the circular flow, as that money will not return back into the circle. Investments , contrary to what you might expect, count as an injection into the flow of money because new investments are already counted as purchases in the product market, as investments are purchased from a business, while old investments boost production without reducing the resources available.
The circular flow model is a good representation of the flow of money in a single economy. It is composed of five simple things: households, businesses, the resource market, the factor market, and the government. With it, the GDP of a country can be fairly accurately estimated. But an even more accurate number may be elicited by removing the assumptions which go with the model.
This model has importance in many economic theories, of which the most prevalent and used is undoubtedly Keynesian Economics. I write about economics, technology, and markets. I am a freshman at the University of Washington. You must log in to post a comment.

One of the earliest ideas on the circular flow was explained in the work of 18th century Irish-French economist Richard Cantillon ,  who was influenced by prior economists, especially William Petty. Cantillon distinguished at least five types of economic agents: property owners, farmers, entrepreneurs, labors and artisans, as expressed in the contemporary diagram of the Cantillon's Circular Flow Economy.
The model Quesnay created consisted of three economic agents: The "Proprietary" class consisted of only landowners. The "Productive" class consisted of all agricultural laborers. The "Sterile" class is made up of artisans and merchants. In Marxian economics, economic reproduction refers to recurrent or cyclical processes  by which the initial conditions necessary for economic activity to occur are constantly re-created.
Economic reproduction involves the physical production and distribution of goods and services, the trade the circulation via exchanges and transactions of goods and services, and the consumption of goods and services both productive or intermediate consumption and final consumption.
Karl Marx developed the original insights of Quesnay to model the circulation of capital, money, and commodities in the second volume of Das Kapital to show how the reproduction process that must occur in any type of society can take place in capitalist society by means of the circulation of capital. Marx distinguishes between "simple reproduction" and "expanded or enlarged reproduction". In the capitalist mode of production, the difference is that in the former case, the new surplus value created by wage-labour is spent by the employer on consumption or hoarded , whereas in the latter case, part of it is reinvested in production.
Keynes' assistant Richard Stone further developed the concept for the United Nations UN and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development to the systems, which is now used internationally. The first to visualize the modern circular flow of income model was Frank Knight in publication of The Economic Organization.
Knight pictured a circulation of money and circulation of economic value between people individuals, families and business enterprises as a group,  explaining: "The general character of an enterprise system, reduced to its very simplest terms, can be illustrated by a diagram showing the exchange of productive power for consumption goods between individuals and business units, mediated by the circulation of money, and suggesting the familiar figure of the wheel of wealth.
A circular flow of income model is a simplified representation of an economy. In the basic two-sector circular flow of income model, the economy consists of two sectors : 1 households and 2 firms. In addition, the model assumes that a through their expenditures, households spend all of their income on goods and services or consumption and b through their expenditures , households purchase all output produced by firms. The firms then spend all of this income on factors of production such as labor, capital and raw materials, "transferring" all of their income to the factor owners which are households.
The factor owners households , in turn, spend all of their income on goods, which leads to a circular flow of income. The three-sector model adds the government sector to the two-sector model. It excludes the financial sector and the foreign sector. The government sector consists of the economic activities of local, state and federal governments. Flows from households and firms to government are in the form of taxes. The income the government receives flows to firms and households in the form of subsidies, transfers, and purchases of goods and services.
The four-sector model adds the foreign sector to the three-sector model. It excludes the financial sector. The foreign sector comprises a foreign trade imports and exports of goods and services and b inflow and outflow of capital foreign exchange. The addition of the foreign sector. The five-sector model adds the financial sector to the four-sector model. The financial sector includes banks and non-bank intermediaries that engage in borrowing savings from households and lending investments in firms.
Residuals from each market enter the capital market as savings, which in turn are invested in firms and the government sector. Technically speaking, so long as lending is equal to borrowing i. However, this job is done by financial institutions in the economy. The progression from the two-sector model to the five sector model as documented above that is, by starting with households and firms, then successively adding the government sector, the foreign sector, and the financial sector is common.
However, some authors group 1 households, 2 firms, and 3 the financial sector together as the " private sector " and subsequently add 4 the government sector, making the " domestic sector ," and 5 the foreign sector. Leakages and injections can occur in the financial sector, government sector and overseas sector:. In terms of the circular flow of income model, the leakage that financial institutions provide in the economy is the option for households to save their money.
This is a leakage because the saved money can not be spent in the economy and thus is an idle asset that means not all output will be purchased. An example of a group in the finance sector includes banks such as Westpac or financial institutions such as Suncorp. The leakage that the Government sector provides is through the collection of revenue through taxes T that is provided by households and firms to the government. This is a leakage because it is a leakage out of the current income thus reducing the expenditure on current goods and services.
The injection provided by the government sector is government spending G that provides collective services and welfare payments to the community. An example of a tax collected by the government as a leakage is income tax and an injection into the economy can be when the government redistributes this income in the form of welfare payments , that is a form of government spending back into the economy. The main leakage from this sector are imports M , which represent spending by residents into the rest of the world.
The main injection provided by this sector is the exports of goods and services which generate income for the exporters from overseas residents. An example of the use of the overseas sector is Australia exporting wool to China, China pays the exporter of the wool the farmer therefore more money enters the economy thus making it an injection. Another example is China processing the wool into items such as coats and Australia importing the product by paying the Chinese exporter; since the money paying for the coat leaves the economy it is a leakage.
In terms of the five sector circular flow of income model the state of equilibrium occurs when the total leakages are equal to the total injections that occur in the economy. This can be shown as:. Therefore, since the leakages are equal to the injections the economy is in a stable state of equilibrium.
This state can be contrasted to the state of disequilibrium where unlike that of equilibrium the sum of total leakages does not equal the sum of total injections. By giving values to the leakages and injections the circular flow of income can be used to show the state of disequilibrium. Disequilibrium can be shown as:. To manage this problem, if disequilibrium were to occur in the five sector circular flow of income model, changes in expenditure and output will lead to equilibrium being regained.
An example of this is if:. As the income falls households will cut down on all leakages such as saving, they will also pay less in taxation and with a lower income they will spend less on imports. This will lead to a fall in the leakages until they equal the injections and a lower level of equilibrium will be the result. As the households income increases there will be a higher opportunity to save therefore saving in the financial sector will increase, taxation for the higher threshold will increase and they will be able to spend more on imports.
In this case when the leakages increase the situation will be a higher level of equilibrium. The circular flow of income is significant in four areas: . The circular flow diagram is an abstraction of the economy as a whole. The diagram suggests that the economy can reproduce itself. The idea is that as households spend money of goods and services from firms, the firms have the means to purchase labor from the households, which the households to then purchase goods and services.
Suggesting that this process can and will continuously go on as a perpetual motion machine. However, according to the Laws of Thermodynamics perpetual motion machines do not exist. Just as no animal can live on its own waste, no economy can recycle the waste it produces without the input of new energy to reproduce itself. The economy therefore cannot be the whole. It must be a subsystem of the larger ecosystem.
