The Capital Allocation Process
In a well-functioning economy, capital (credit) flows
efficiently from those who supply capital (credit) to
those who demand it.
Suppliers of capital (credit) individuals and institutions
with “excess funds.” These groups are saving money

Demanders or users of capital (credit) individuals and
institutions who need to raise funds to finance their
investment opportunities. These groups are willing to
pay a rate of return on the capital they borrow.
