Transcript of Circular Flow Model

how the government, businesses and individuals interact
Circular Flow Model
Producers v. Consumers
Producers - own businesses that make the goods and services.
In Economics these interactions are shown on the Circular Flow diagram
The top of the diagram is called the PRODUCT market
because this is where the producers sell consumers the goods they made
The bottom of the diagram is called the FACTOR or RESOURCE market
because it involves the Factors of Production --- land, labor, capital, and entrepreneurship
Because all Economic Systems are MIXED the Government is involved...
households and businesses pay taxes to the Government
How do producers/entrepreneurs make goods and services?

Chocolate bar
Consumers - people, households, families that participate in voluntary exchange (trade in which both parties are satisfied)

and then we buy chocolate, because it is YUMMY!
the Government provides us with public goods and services
the Government also hires workers... like mail carriers and teachers
ppl give land, labor, or capital to businesses
businesses pay people in the form of rent (land), wages (labor), interest (capital)
