ABSTRACT

Flow of Funds Accounts (FFAs) are the official statistics describing how funds are transferred and where assets/liabilities exist, both inside and outside a country. At the international level, global FFAs depict the cross-border transfer of funds and the consequent claim/obligation relations among countries. The main purpose of this paper is to comprehend and organize the FFAs of various countries of the world from a financial point of view. We construct a global financial input–output table that shows both international and domestic transactions by each domestic institutional sector for the U.S., Japan, Korea, and China.

Keywords: Financial Input-Output Table, Flow-of-funds
