Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
for one misleading aspect of it.  The relative sizes of the boxes give the impression that F.I.R.E is a lot more important to the economy than it really is.  The employee/consumer and producer/employer boxes should be much larger in size to prevent a reader from coming away with an exaggerated impression of the how critical FIRE is supporting to human living conditions in an economy.  Credit institutions are important, but not critical, to the functioning of an economy.
