The circular flow model
1. The circular flow model
The following diagram presents a circular flow model of a simple economy. The outer set of arrows (shown in green) shows the flow of dollars, and the inner set of arrows (shown in red) shows the corresponding flow of inputs and outputs.
1.Based on this model, households earn income when (households/firms) purchase ( Goods and services/ Resource) in resource markets.
Suppose Megan earns $600 per week working as an analyst for A-Plus Accountants. She uses $8 to order a mojito cocktail at Little Havana. Little Havana pays Larry $350 per week to wait tables. Larry uses $225 to purchase tax services from A-Plus Accountants.

|3.Larry earns $350 per week working for Little Havana.||(Resource mareket/ Product mareket)|
|4.Megan spends $8 to order a mojito cocktail.||(Resource mareket/ Product mareket)|
