United Kingdom Economy Balance Sheets (Sectors)

This graph shows the financial surplus or deficit by sector for the economy of the United Kingdom. You can see that the government runs structural deficit. This deficit of the government is financed by the private sector and the rest of the world. During the crisis the government deficit exploded. This was not financed by borrowing more from foreigners but only from more private savings.
