The Balance Of Payments

Loading the player...

The Balance of Payments is a record of all payments or monetary transactions between a particular country and other nations during a specific time period. A country’s BOP should be zero; that is, the current account should balance with the capital plus the financial accounts. However, statistical discrepancies, differences in accounting practices and exchange-rate fluctuations mean that this rarely happens.
