The elements of a financial system make up several key parts of an economy. A financial system involves all of the businesses, regulations and systems that handle money in that economy. These businesses work together, along with people, as a system to keep money flowing through an economy. While financial systems may seem complicated, the elements of financial systems are regular parts of everyday life that, when working well, combine to create and facilitate large-scale economic impacts.
