Macroeconomic diagrams

This post is a collection of diagrams intended to display the structure of a macroeconomy. Diagrams have been used for many millennia to describe complex phenomena. Writer Bert Hall said,


"...diagrams are simplified figures, caricatures in a way, intended to convey essential meaning." (The Didactic and the Elegant, 1996)


I have included my own macroeconomic diagram at the end of the post.
