Abstract: The flow of funds system of national accounts is designed to bring the many financial activities of the U.S. economy into explicit statistical relationship with one another and into direct relation to data on the nonfinancial activities that generate income and production. The purpose of the accounts is to provide, systematically, the aggregate measures of transactions needed to identify both influences of the non-financial economy on financial markets and reciprocal influences of financial market developments on demand for goods and services, sources and amounts of saving and investment, and the structure of income. The accounts are intended to provide and empirical base for exploring such questions as the sensitivity of borrowing to interest rates as against other influences, the effects of cost and supply of credit on physical investment demand, the role of money holdings in the public's structure of assets and liabilities, and the relation of financial positions-levels of assets and liabilities-to demands for goods and services, for credit, and for investment in financial claims.
