ABSTRACT

Flow of Funds Accounts (FFA) refer to the statistics describing how funds are tr ansferred and where assets and liabilities exist in or outside a country. This paper tries to produce preliminary global FFA focusing on Asia-Pacific region, which is a type of global FFA, and to identify its uses. We discuss the method of converting countries’ FFA into Financial Input-output (FIO) and putting those FIOs, CPIS, CDIS and other international statistics into the framework of global FIO. Then, it discusses the use of global FIO table by applying the methods of input-output analysis.
