Fundamental Research on Global Flow-of-Funds Analysis(2018_1_40_005)

As a brief overview of the world economy in recent years, the savings glut has caused a public debt problem in developed economies. On the other hand, lack of investment has undermined economic growth in underdeveloped countries. However, the gaps in the financial systems between developed and developing countries hinders the global redistribution of funds. This research project aims to understand and organize flow-of-funds accounts in various countries of the world, especially the development of the global flow-of-funds table and a case study of Brazil. The methods will be systematically analyzed in order to investigate the situation of the global maldistribution of funds. Furthermore, the countermeasures for underdeveloped countries with inadequate statistics will be examined in detail.
